When to Get a Kia Oil Change

After upgrading your commute from Raleigh to Durham with a new Kia sedan or SUV, you’ll want to take all of the necessary steps to keep your Kia running at peak performance. Diligent drivers will want to know when to get a Kia oil change, and the service team at Hendrick Kia of Cary is here to provide the information you need! Kia models aren’t so different from most other cars in that they only require an oil change every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Whether you’re asking about a Kia Soul oil change or a Kia Optima oil change, that same rule applies. You can learn more about how often to change oil in a Kia, below!

How Often to Change Oil in a Kia

The average driver in Apex can adhere to the 7,500 – 10,000-mile guideline for their Kia oil change schedule. For some drivers, however, the interval may vary depending on their driving habits. For example, if you take your Kia Telluride SUV off-roading every weekend, it will likely require more frequent oil changes. If you like to take your Kia Stinger to the racetrack, you might also find yourself scheduling more frequent oil changes.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

Here at the Hendrick Kia of Cary service center, we’re known for providing quality service in a timely manner. How long does an oil change take when you visit us in Cary? You can usually expect to be in and out in about an hour.

What Type of Oil Does My Car Need?

A quick consultation with your owner’s manual will give you a model-specific answer to your question of “What type of oil does my car need?” Kia vehicles run perfectly well with conventional oil, but you will also have the option of synthetic oil. Synthetic oil, while more expensive than conventional oil, may create a better performance from your Kia.

What Is the Kia Oil Change Price?

A Kia oil change typically ranges from $29.99 to $59.99, depending on your vehicle and whether you choose conventional oil, synthetic oil, or a blend of the two. Here at Hendrick Kia of Cary we always offer fair prices on Kia oil change service, and we even have a rotating selection of service specials that includes Kia oil change coupons!

More Oil Change Tips for Cary Drivers

  • Don’t drive your vehicle very often in Apex? Even so, you should have a Kia Optima oil change at least twice per year, as oil can break down over time even when you’re not using the car.
  • Whether you’re getting a Kia Soul oil change or any other Kia model, you should double-check that the oil filter is being changed each time, too.
