Taking Care of Your Sante Fe Sport

You understand why you should visit the doctor once a year and see your dentist on a regular basis for a cleaning, but you may not realize that it is just as important to do regular maintenance and check ups on your vehicle. You probably chose the Sport because you needed an SUV you could count on, with a great warranty to back it up. And it is a reliable vehicle, with a lot of great features.

Even the best put together vehicle with the highest quality parts can have small problems every now and then. There are so many moving parts on a car, and they have to deal with so much strain and stress from driving around on the streets. Luckily, regular maintenance is quick and relatively painless.

Your Oil Change

The most important bit of maintenance you will take care of on a regular basis is changing the oil. Older cars needed to have their oil changed more often, but the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport usually only needs an oil change about once every 7,500 miles (check your owner's manual to be sure). This is assuming you don't drive your vehicle a lot; if you drive more than 1,000 miles per month, you should have your oil changed more often. You may even need to do it every 3,000 miles, which was the old standard.

When the certified Hyundai technician changes your oil during a full service oil change, he or she will also look over your car to make sure everything looks all right. You will get a new oil filter, and your other fluids may be filled if necessary. Other parts may be lubricated if necessary, and your tires will be check to make sure they have the proper amount of air.

What Other Kinds of Maintenance Do You Need?

You will also need other maintenance, at different times in your vehicle's life. Like with the oil change, you will choose when to schedule based on the length of time that has passed or the number of miles you have driven, whichever comes first. You will probably find it easier to plan other maintenance along with an oil change.

At 15,000 miles or 12 months, you will need to consider checking other parts, like brake pads, suspension and the steering gear box. By 30,000 miles or 24 months, you should also check your parking brake and exhaust system. At 45,000 miles or 36 months, you should schedule a tune up where your spark plugs will be replaced. Hyundai has a list of all the recommended areas which you will need to have inspected. By making sure that you follow the recommended schedule, you are also protecting yourself in the event that you need to use the warranty. It is important to show that you were taking care of your vehicle in case anything ever happens.
