2020 Hyundai Sonata SEL

How Often Should I Service My Hyundai Sonata?

The proper Hyundai Sonata maintenance schedule for your car can be found in the owner's manual that accompanies your vehicle. It's essential to follow the maintenance schedule specifically for your car, as your car will need to have certain components checked at specific times to make sure it is performing as it should. Keeping up with all Hyundai Sonata service intervals can also make your car safer to drive and regulate its emissions.

15,000-Mile Service

The Hyundai Sonata will need to have its first mileage-based service at 15,000 miles. When the Sonata reaches this point, it will also be due for its second tire rotation, depending on the tires' condition and wear patterns, and it will need another engine oil change. The engine's filter may be replaced at this first mileage checkpoint as well. A Hyundai mechanic may add a fuel additive to your vehicle for performance. Internally, the air cleaner filter will get replaced. A technician will also look at the car's vacuum hose.

30,000-Mile Service

At 30,000 miles, your Hyundai Sonata is due for the next round of services. Based on the Hyundai Sonata maintenance schedule, the car will need to have the front, rear brake disc pads, and brake calipers checked at this point. The steering system components will be evaluated, including the boots, steering linkage, arm ball joints, and steering gearbox. The suspension mounting bolts are also checked. The Sonata will get another oil change, and it will likely have a fuel additive added as well. The tires get inspected and possibly rotated at 30,000 miles.

60,000-Mile Service

When your Hyundai Sonata hits 60,000 miles, it has more services performed. The air conditioning refrigerant will be inspected at 60,000 miles. The vacuum hose is also checked. A mechanic will look at the brakes to make sure they are working properly and not worn out. The Sonata will have its battery tested to see if it needs replacing. The exhaust pipe, muffler, and boots are inspected at 60,000 miles. The spark plugs get checked at 60,000 miles as well.

90,000-Mile Service

The Sonata will need some additional services at 90,000 miles. The car's major fluids are due for a change at this time, including the transmission fluid, brake fluid, and coolant fluid. The car's tires will be rotated, and the car may have an alignment performed as well. The timing belt and filters in the engine and cabin are also checked.
