How To Keep Your Kia Optima-l!

We all need our vehicles to last, especially in San Antonio, TX where the heat wears down on your car. Fortunately the Kia Optima is known for lasting a long time. The best thing you can do is keep your Optima in Optimal shape. Below is the service schedule to Optimize your Optima!

Engine Oil

Thanks to advancements in technology over time, oil changes no longer need to be 1,000-3,000 miles! The recommended oil change schedule is 7,500 miles or 7 ½ months for ideal weather conditions - in extreme heat or during Summer in San Antonio, the owner’s manual changes it to 5,000 miles or 6 months!


So the Oil Filter is with the Engine Oil at 7,500 miles to 7 ½ months. The Air Filter, however, needs to be changed every 9,500 miles. And last but not least, the Fuel Filter needs to be changed every 60,000 miles or 5 years!

Other Important Things

Your Brake Fluid should be changed in the Kia Optima every 15,000 miles or 15 months. Your Coolant should be flushed every 30,000 miles or 24 months (maybe even more regularly in San Antonio) and the Spark Plugs need to be replaced every 60,000 miles or 60 months.
