While Kia vehicles are certainly known for being dependable, they still need regular routine maintenance. This goes for the Kia Sportage, too.
While this compact SUV is loved for its reliability and longevity, it’s still exposed to the wear and tear of everyday driving.
For our drivers in Coatesville, Downingtown, and Lancaster, our team at Jim Sipala Kia of Coatesville has put together this maintenance schedule for the Kia Sportage.
You’ll find just what you need to have checked out or replaced and when, so that your Sportage will be cruising for years to come!
Kia Sportage Maintenance: Every 5,000 Miles
You do a lot with your Sportage—taking the kids to school, running errands, or taking the occasional weekend road trip.
The miles start to add up, and you might notice your vehicle start to display small signs of wear and tear. You may also notice this happens around every 5,000 miles or so.
Around 5,000 miles, you’ll want to ensure that your Sportage receives an oil change and tire rotation. These are two simple maintenance procedures that will help to keep your vehicle running in its best shape.
Additionally, you’ll want to have the tire wear patterns and condition checked, as well as the condition of the brake components, light bulbs, and fluid levels. The tire pressure should also be set, along with having low fluids refilled.
Kia Sportage Maintenance: Every 15,000 Miles
To stay ahead of any potentially larger maintenance issues, you’ll want to get a more detailed inspection of your Sportage.
At 15,000 miles, you’ll need the basic maintenance procedures we’ve just gone over, along with a few extras.
Be sure to have the following inspected:
- Brake fluid
- Transfer case fluids
- Differential fluids
- Transmission Fluid
- Drive axle boots
- Wiper blades
In addition to these components, you’ll also want to have your air filter and fuel lines looked at, as well as the propeller shaft lubricated.
Kia Sportage Maintenance: Every 30,000 Miles
Every 30,000 miles, your Sportage will need some extra TLC. Adding on to the 5,000- and 15,000-mile inspections, you’ll also want to have your cabin air filter checked and potentially replaced.
Furthermore, you’ll want to have your distributor cap and ignition wires inspected. These are all simple, easy services that will help your Sportage running smoothly on the road for the next 30,000 miles.
Your Driving Conditions
The maintenance timeline that we’ve gone over adheres to normal driving conditions—daily driving that doesn’t exceed a certain mileage or weight. If you are driving under severe conditions, your Sportage will need to undergo more frequent maintenance.
Such conditions include off-road driving, using your Sportage to tow or haul, driving in harsh weather conditions, or any other driving conditions that can wear out your vehicle quickly or cause damage.
