    At this stage, the car’s batteries, lights, cooling system, brakes, suspensions, and water pumps are checked. The oil is changed and the vehicle is offered a deep wash too.

    15,000 miles
    In the second scheduled maintenance, you will need a professional to conduct inspections, oiling, and replacement of the door locks, latches, and hinges. The air filter and climate control filters are also changed. 

    30,000 miles
    The 30,000 miles maintenance check follows the identical process as the 15,000 miles one. But in addition to these, your Kia service technicians in Chapel Hill will also assess the performance of the fuel tank. Any faulty parts will be replaced and blockages cleared.

    45,000 miles
    During your fourth scheduled maintenance of your Kia, it's best to get your accessories and smaller car parts replaced. Brake pads, steering leather, car battery, exhaust tips, spark plugs, odometer – all of these will be inspected and upgraded as the need arises. An oil change is also included at this stage. 

    60,000 miles
    This milestone in your Kia maintenance routine marks will involve a thorough evaluation of the drive belt. If there are any cracks or tears, it will be replaced. 

    One sign that you should have the drive belt changed is the tension in your car reduces considerably. You can use the 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty to cover this service. 

    120,000 miles 
    During this stage, University Kia of Durham conducts a comprehensive, end-to-end inspection of each and every component of your model. By now, your car parts will have worn out and will benefit from new ones. The engine coolant and oil will be replaced at this stage too.
