Keeping up with your Kia Sorento's routine maintenance is the best way to keep it healthy and protect its resale and trade-in value. Fortunately, it doesn't take much time or work, just a few minor services, to save you from expensive repairs and breakdowns in the future.

Drivers in Mechanicsburg and Harrisburg can find out the ideal service intervals for the Kia Sorento with our helpful maintenance schedule from the team at Fred Beans Kia of Mechanicsburg.

Basic Kia Service

Every 5,000 miles or 6 months, your Sorento needs a few minor services to keep it protected. These services will be performed at this interval for the life of your Sorento, which will help you identify any systems or components that may be subjected to more severe stress or wear.

At this time, you should have your oil and oil filter changed and your tires rotated, and you should have a full inspection of your vehicle's components performed to identify any potential repairs or wear. This should include components like your suspension and exhaust, as well as a visual inspection of your brakes and exterior.

Intermediate Kia Service

At 15,000 miles or one year, your Sorento needs a more thorough inspection and servicing to stay healthy and reduce the risk of a breakdown. These services are in addition to your basic services.

At this time, your Sorento should have a thorough inspection of your engine and vital engine components, such as your transmission and battery charging system. You should also have your air and fuel filters inspected and changed, if necessary, as well as all your fluid levels checked and refilled.

Major Kia Services

 At 30,000 miles or 18 months, your Sorento will need all the services and inspections from the basic and intermediate intervals, as well as some more intensive services.

Your Sorento should have the air filter and cabin air filter checked and replaced, along with a more thorough inspection of your engine's vital systems. Certain aspects of your vehicle, such as the spark plugs, distributor cap, ignition wires, power steering system, coolant levels and exhaust system should have a thorough inspection to check for any wear or damage that could lead to a serious malfunction.
