The 2022 Kia Seltos is now available at Folsom Lake Kia. This is a reliable SUV that seats up to five people. To maintain high performance, it’s contingent on the owner to follow regular servicing intervals. Here are some maintenance intervals for important services that keep the model in peak function.  

Oil Change 

According to the vehicle user manual, owners should not go more than 7,500 miles between oil changes. This is the maximum, and you should consider oil changes sooner if you frequently drive under severe conditions, such as short-distance commuting on city streets. A Kia technician will determine whether the vehicle is due for an oil change. 

Coolant Change 

The coolant is an essential fluid that keeps the engine from overheating. The coolant occasionally needs to be drained and refilled with fresh fluid. The Kia Seltos requires a coolant flush when the odometer reaches the 120,000-mile mark. After that, it’ll require a coolant change every 30,000 miles.  

Air Filter 

The air filter requires a change every 7,500 miles. Since this is the same interval as an oil change, you can perform both in the same visit. A dirty air filter will lead to performance troubles like engine misfiring and poor fuel economy.  

Tire Rotation 

Rotate the tires every 5,000 to 7,500 miles, or every six months, whichever one comes first. When rotating the tires, the technician will also perform a check of each tire for signs of tread wear and sidewall damage. Additional services like tire balancing and alignment may also be performed if necessary.
