MAINTENANCE

What maintenance should I perform on my vehicle?

In between service visits, there are several things you can do to help keep your vehicle running like new. Below are general guidelines. Please be sure to check your Owner's Manual for specific information on maintaining your vehicle.

. Engine oil - Check your oil at every fuel fill-up. Add oil if the level is below the lower mark on your dipstick.

. Engine coolant - Check the coolant in your engine often (at least monthly) by checking the reserve tank. Be sure to check the reserve tank and make sure not to remove the radiator cap - the fluid inside is extremely hot.

. Windshield washer fluid - Check your windshield washer fluid at every fuel fill-up.

. Automatic transmission fluid - Your authorized Hyundai dealer should check your automatic transmission fluid, linkage, and controls yearly.

. Brake fluid - Brake fluid level has an indicator light in the instrument cluster. If the light illuminates, contact your local Hyundai dealer.

. Tires - Check your tire pressure at least monthly to ensure that your tires are properly inflated (this includes your spare). Also be sure to check tire tread for uneven or excessive wear and foreign objects.

. Air conditioning - Check your air conditioning often by turning it on for a short time regularly.

. Lights - Check all of your lights - head, tail, parking, and brake lights, high-mount brake light, turn signals, backup and license plate lights - at least monthly.

Why is it important to maintain my vehicle?

Proper vehicle maintenance is the most critical step in ensuring the longevity and the value of the vehicle. Maintaining your vehicle will optimize your vehicle's performance, safety and fuel efficiency.  Lastly, adhering to Hyundai's recommended maintenance schedule will help ensure eligible repairs remain covered by Hyundai Canada's warranty.

When should I put on and take off winter tires?

Snow tires should be taken off when temperatures are consistently above 7 degrees Celsius. If temperatures exceed that for a couple days, it won't be a problem as the ground probably won't heat up right. Over exposure to these temperatures can cause the tire compound to harden and this will affect traction performance in winter conditions. This usually means November install and April removal. We do offer seasonal tire storage!

What fuel is recommended for use in my vehicle?

Your Hyundai is designed to use only unleaded fuel having a pump octane number of 87 or higher. Using unleaded fuel will allow your vehicle to attain maximum performance and will minimize exhaust emissions and spark plug fouling. 

What kind of motor oil is recommended for my vehicle, and how often should the oil be changed?

Refer to your Section 7 of the Owner's Manual, for the Hyundai-recommended service intervals. Engine oil is the "lifeblood" of your Hyundai. Engine oil provides cooling, lubrication from friction, and cleans and cushions the vital internal components of your vehicle's engine. Following Hyundai's recommended service intervals will ensure the engine oil is effective and working to prevent engine damage. Check the engine oil level at every fuel fill-up.

Hyundai's engine oil recommendations vary from vehicle to vehicle, and from model year to model year. For the most accurate recommendation, please consult Section 8 of your Owner's Manual.

Why is it important to keep accurate service records?

Service records are imperative to providing proof of maintenance and can add value to the vehicle. As part of your warranty, we require customers to perform all maintenance for Hyundai Canada to uphold its side of the warranty. 

When I start my car, do I need to let it sit to warm up?

Your Hyundai does not require extended warm up. After the engine has started, allow the engine to run for 10 to 20 seconds prior to placing the vehicle in gear. In very cold weather, however, give your engine a slightly longer warm-up period, between 60-90 seconds. Letting your engine idle for long periods of time is bad for fuel efficiency.
