When should you bring your Kia vehicle in for service? Your car has a factory-recommended service schedule that details a variety of service intervals -- or milestones that tell you what kinds of services you're likely to need and when. Some of these services appear frequently, such as oil changes, tire rotations, and other common maintenance items. We've detailed some of the most important basic maintenance items here so that you can be prepared to tackle them.

Oil Change

Fresh oil is critical for your car. It lubricates your engine, which helps to cut back on wear and tear. Oil wears out and breaks down, though, which is why it needs to be replaced. Changing your oil every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or so is the general rule for most modern cars. If you don't rack up miles very quickly, stick to an oil change every six months at our service center serving Leesburg.

Tire Rotation

Tire rotations help to improve the longevity of your tires by helping them wear out evenly. Getting a tire rotation at the same time as an oil change is a great way to make sure that you have all the bases covered. Overall, getting a tire rotation at our dealership serving Sterling and Chantilly every 6,000 miles or six months (whichever comes first) is the way to go.

Brake Service

Regular brake checkups can help you avoid safety hazards as well as costly repairs. Having your brakes checked at least every six months can help you catch minor problems before they get worse. You want to know that your brakes will behave the way you expect them to when you need them most, and regular checkups offer the best way to know.
