Hyundai Service Schedule
How often should you actually service your Hyundai? The precise service schedule is actually tailored to your specific year, model and mileage of Hyundai. Determine your unique recommended maintenance schedule now.
In general, however, Hyundai recommends that you service your vehicle every 7,500 miles or six months (whichever comes first) under normal driving conditions. Keep in mind that temperature extremes can be harder on your vehicle. If you face intensely hot or cold temperatures, you should wait less time between these basic services:
Check the owner’s manual of your Hyundai for the specifics on this. Typically, the oil in your Hyundai should be changed every six months or 3,700 miles but should definitely not exceed 7,500 miles.
Rotate the tires on your Hyundai from front to rear every 5000-7500 miles or roughly every other recommended oil change to ensure that they will wear evenly.
Every 15,000 miles, or at least once a year, your Hyundai should receive a more intensive inspection or “annual checkup.” Typical services performed during this checkup include:
Change Fuel Filter
Hyundai recommends a mileage specific mileage interval for this service which varies slightly depending on the year and model of vehicle. However, if this filter is not replaced regularly, it can become restricted from debris buildup which can potentially lead to early pump failure.
Inspect Air Cleaner Filter
Since the air filter also accumulates dust and other debris, it should be replaced with every annual service. This will protect the engine of your Hyundai as well as help to maximize fuel efficiency.
Replace Climate Control Air Filter
Changing this filter about once every 15,000 miles assists with strong, steady air flow through the vents when using the heater or air conditioner. It also helps to keep the cabin air more pleasant-smelling and reduces irritants in the air.
Additional services that may wait a little longer but are absolutely necessary for the health of your Hyundai include:
Hyundai Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter Change
Automatic transmission fluid becomes heat fatigued and accumulates moisture over time. This may mean serious damage to automatic transmissions if not serviced regularly. It should be replaced every two years or 30,000 miles. Just as the transmission fluid becomes weary, so does the filter. This should also be replaced around the same time in order to prevent Powertrain problems.
Hyundai Drive Belt Replacement
Drive belts can become damaged and crack over time. This causes them to make unpleasant squeaking sounds or possibly even break entirely which could prove to be very dangerous. These should be replaced every 45,000 miles.
