6 Ways to Keep Your Hyundai in Like-New ConditionDecember 12, 2020
Want to keep your Hyundai looking as good as the day you drove it off the lot? Regular maintenance tasks are imperative to keeping your vehicle in prime condition. With a little TLC, you can get the most out of your vehicle and enjoy driving it for longer. Here are some simple ways to keep your Hyundai in like-new condition.
Change the Air Filters
Protecting your vehicle’s engine is crucial, and the air filter is a key player here. It helps prevent debris, dust and dirt from harming the internal elements of the engine. But over time, accumulation of dust can easily damage the engine, which is why we recommend monitoring the air filter and changing it once per year or every 20,000 km.
Check Tire Pressure
Roadways can cause a lot of wear and tear on your tires, and with the fluctuating temperatures during the seasons, the air pressure can quickly dissipate. To ensure your tires are properly inflated at all times, use a quality pressure gauge and compare the number to the required level in your owner’s manual or on the door jam sticker. Make it a habit to check them every month.
To get the most out of your tires, it’s important to have them rotated every six months or every 8-12,000 kilometres. This can extend the miles you get out of them and save you money in the long run.
Check and Change Oil Regularly
Oil is one of the most essential ingredients for keeping your vehicle working properly. Check the oil once per week on average. Once you reach 6-7,000 km, get an oil change.
Keep All Other Fluids Topped Up
The coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, windshield washer, and brake fluid are also essential for keeping both you and your car safe when on the road. These should be checked every week. If you don’t know how to check them, be sure to reach out to your dealership’s service department.
Pay Attention to Dashboard Warnings
Those blinking lights on your dashboard are there for a reason. If you notice any signals, don’t ignore them. It’s likely time to bring your vehicle in for a service.
When your Hyundai needs a checkup, bring it into Seaway Hyundai to get it ready to take on the next season.
