With better engineering and oil formulations, you can expect between 5,000-7,5000 miles or every 6 months for oil changes. There are many variables that affect when you need your next oil change, some are climate, the conditions you drive in, you’re driving habits, and more.
When you go to a local dealership, you enjoy the benefits of skilled technicians who know the ins n outs of your vehicle will work on it. Our Kia service center has state-of-the-art equipment and genuine OEM parts to guarantee your vehicle gets the service it deserves.
When your car’s check engine light turns on, it might be because of something minor like a loose gas cap, or a more serious matter requiring a mechanic to diagnose. Ignoring the problem can turn a potentially quick fix into a costly repair, so make sure to get your vehicle inspected to prevent any long-term problems.
No. You don’t have to have an appointment to get your vehicle serviced at our Kia dealership. Walk-ins are allowed, just be conscious of wait times varying based on the time of day and traffic. We do recommend scheduling beforehand so that we can accommodate your schedule and needs.
Our Kia auto parts are designed to fit your specific Kia model and will keep that area of your car and other associated parts performing in their best condition. The OEM parts you get at our Kia service center are certified to do all the specified duties it's supposed to do.
Try to get your tires rotated every time you go in for an oil change, or after every 5,000-6,000 miles. When you rotate your tires, you are supporting even tread wear which improves your vehicle's handling, reduces noise and vibrations, and extends their life.
We recommend following your manufacturer's owner manual for specifics, but ideally, be changing your fuel filter around every 30,000 miles or 2 years (whichever comes first). If you drive a lot on unpaved roads, or through highway construction zones which can kick up a lot of dust, rubble, and debris, you may want to change your fuel filter more frequently.
A good rule of thumb is to have your brakes checked every 6 months, or whenever you rotate your tires. Not replacing your brake pads at regular intervals will severely reduce the stopping power, leading to wear on the brake discs, and can result in costly repairs in the future.
All Texas-registered vehicles are required to receive an annual vehicle inspection before registration can be completed, this includes checking several core components of the car to ensure its operating as it should.
