Servicing Your Kia Sorento

Service 9Between technology advances and different driving styles and climates, maintenance needs will tend to vary from Kia model to Kia model over the years. If you’re wondering about the best times to get your vehicle serviced, it’s ideal to check your owner’s manual or consult with a technician to see what’s recommended for your specific Kia Sorento model. In general, though, you will want to keep up with these services at the recommended intervals. Every month, you can check the coolant level and ensure that all your lights are working. You should also keep a close eye on the tire pressure and condition to make sure they’re not excessively worn out.

Every Year
