Note - Actual service requirements may vary, depending on vehicle usage and operating conditions. Refer to the section on ‘Supplementary Servicing’ for further details.

Time or distance - when do I service my vehicle?

You’ll notice that the service schedule specifies a time OR speedometer reading for performing periodic maintenance. In the event the elapsed distance is not covered in the time specified, it is still necessary to have your vehicle serviced and maintained. This is because some service related items have a limited service life expectancy, and failure to perform this maintenance may result in reduced durability and may also affect your warranty coverage on some components.

For specific servicing requirements, you should always refer to the Owner’s Manual supplied with your new Kia. In some cases, additional supplementary servicing may be required to correctly maintain your vehicle.

Supplementary services

Depending on the type of vehicle and operating conditions, some vehicles may require more frequent servicing. These include:

  • Repeated short distance driving
  • Driving in dusty or sandy conditions
  • 4 Wheel Driving, particularly where water crossings or boggy situations are encountered
  • Driving in extreme climatic conditions i.e. very hot or very cold for extended periods
  • Towing a trailer or caravan
  • Sustained high speed driving

For specific servicing requirements, you should refer to your vehicle’s Owner’s Manual regarding Maintenance under Severe Usage Conditions, or speak to your local Kia dealer.
