Hyundai Repair and Maintenance Tips
Hyundai Motor Company is a South Korean auto manufacturer known for their excellent price-performance standards. The Hyundai Accent, Elantra, Ioniq, and Sonata are all very popular for their affordability, reliability, and features. You always get more than you pay for with Hyundai. Notably, Hyundai owns a 33% interest in Kia, another South Korean automaker. They’re one of the most heavily invested brands in the business of vehicle manufacturing.
If you’re invested in your vehicle then we’ve got some Hyundai maintenance advice for you! We promise it will save you a lot of trouble in the long run. Some of this may seem like common sense, but it’s important to remember to do these things regularly, rather than put them off until it becomes a serious problem.
Hyundai Regular Maintenance Tips
These numbers were taken from the official Hyundai maintenance schedule site, but shouldn’t be applied to all vehicles. They’re more of a broad guideline applicable to most but not all Hyundais.

Change Air Filter
Hyundai air filters should be changed every 7,500 miles or so. The air filter keeps clean air flowing into the engine so that it can combust the gasoline efficiently. If you notice engine troubles, misfirings/mistimings, weird smells or odd noises, it may be time to change the air filter. Waiting longer means your engine works harder, wears down faster, and costs you more money.
Change Oil Filter and Oil
It’s important to change your oil filter every 7,500 miles in order to keep the engine running efficiently. Oil changes should be done at the same time so again every 7,500 miles.
Change Spark Plugs
Change spark plugs about every 97,500 miles, generally. Spark plugs tend to last a long time, but it’s easy to replace them so there’s no reason to put this off when the time comes.
Most car batteries last about 30,000 to 50,000 miles before they need to be replaced. If possible, have a maintenance technician check the battery condition every 7,500 miles.
