The benefits of servicing your car with Kia Care

Whether your car is petrol, diesel, hybrid or electric, it will need regular servicing. So, what happens when your car is serviced? And why should you get your car serviced in the first place?

Timely servicing your of car is required to make sure key components and fluids are replaced when due. It’ll ensure that the manufacturer’s warranty is conserved, help enhance your safety and can boost the resale value of your car by having a full Kia service history.

Why get your car serviced?

Cars are complicated machines, and they need a bit of care to keep them performing at their best. Following a service plan will help keep your vehicle in tip-top shape, helping it perform efficiently. It’s also a great way to help your car be as reliable as it should be.

Regular servicing means you are less likely to run into avoidable repair bills. And, as a nice bonus, it’ll help your car to retain its value and maintain the warranty. Which means you’ll have more money down the line to spend on more inspiring and exciting pursuits. Perhaps most importantly it also helps to ensure that your vehicle is safe too.

Why are Kia best-placed to service my vehicle?

With Kia your car will be worked on by specially trained Kia technicians, who have access to the latest advanced Kia tools and diagnostic equipment. They’ll also make sure Kia Genuine Parts are used – which come with a two-year warranty – so you can have confidence in the quality of any work done. And, they have access to official Kia systems, which means they can apply any new software updates to your car. Simply put, they’re best placed to do necessary servicing and maintenance to keep your car working as it should.

What happens in a Kia Care service?

Kia’s trained technicians will thoroughly inspect the car to check that everything is as it should be. Lights, steering, suspension, wheels, tyres and other systems will all receive thorough checks. They’ll make sure fluid levels are correct and top-up or replace where needed.

Depending on the age and mileage of your car, several components will be replaced. Maintenance may include an oil or coolant change, new oil filters, new spark plugs, new air filter, new cabin filter and more.

Do I need to service my electric car?

Absolutely. A Kia e-Care service plan is slightly different. Most of the suspension and braking systems need the same servicing as other cars. The technicians will thoroughly check all the electrical components of the car. This includes the electric motor, the battery and its cooling system, and the high voltage cabling and charging systems. Coolant may be replaced at set intervals.

They will also do some EV-specific maintenance. This includes brake cleaning. Because of the regenerative braking effect on electric cars, traditional brakes are used far less than they are in a petrol or diesel car. That's great for extending the life of the brakes, but it does mean that the discs aren’t cleaned by the pads as often. A brake clean from a Kia technician remedies that and helps extend the life of your brakes even further.

We’ll also rotate your tyres (front to rear) where needed, to ensure that they wear evenly because various systems rely on this to work as intended. It also helps extend the life of your tyres, while ensuring maximum grip.

How do you arrange a Kia Care service plan?

Arranging a Kia Care or Kia e-Care service plan couldn’t be simpler. You can go online and enter your vehicle registration and mileage for a bespoke plan for your vehicle. Or you can simply contact your local Kia Dealer , who will be able to answer any questions you might have. A Kia Care Service Plan offers great value, and you benefit from an inflation-proof fixed cost. And, if you do go on to sell your car, you can transfer the remaining service plan with it. When it comes to servicing your car, you can even book online and choose a time that’s convenient for you.

All things considered, the case for fleets ‘going green’ by turning to EVs and the whole-life costs of running them compared to ICE vehicles has never been more compelling – and it’s only likely to become more so.
