Guide to regular maintenance and inspection

Regular maintenance and inspections are essential to keeping your vehicle in top condition and reducing the risk of unexpected breakdowns while driving. To achieve this, follow Kia's recommended periodic inspection schedule.

  • Drivers can conduct daily inspections of their vehicles themselves, while periodic inspections are carried out at Kia Authorised Dealers or Kia Service Centres.
  • Daily inspections consist of checking the engine room, tyres, exterior (including lamps, number plates, and paint condition), driver's seat (including the instrument panel and control system), and battery condition.
  • Periodic inspections available at Kia Dealers or Kia Service Centres are more comprehensive, covering items like coolant, various oils, driving parts, steering and suspension systems, and air conditioning.
  • The inspection and parts replacement schedules may vary depending on normal or severe driving conditions.
