Your new Hyundai was built to last an incredibly long time, which is why it comes with the industry’s strongest warranty, a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. But making sure that your Hyundai lasts as long as possible requires regular maintenance and care. Here are some important tips that will ensure a long life for your Hyundai and many miles of driver satisfaction.
Routine Maintenance at the Hyundai Dealer
To ensure that your Hyundai is in good mechanical shape, take it to the dealership for an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. During an oil change service, dealership technicians will inspect your car to make sure everything is functioning well. With routine maintenance, your Hyundai could last well beyond the warranty period without any major problems.
Keep an Eye on Your Tires
In between visits to the Hyundai dealer, you should use a tire pressure gauge to keep a close eye on the pressure in your tires. Compare the current air pressure in your tires with the air pressure recommended inside your Hyundai’s owner’s manual. If your tires are under- or overinflated, get them fixed at a gas station or at the dealership, as this will ensure that your car enjoys optimal fuel efficiency, handling, and safety.
Park in the Shade
As the weather heats up in the Manassas area, don’t forget to park your Hyundai in the shade whenever possible. Keep a windshield cover in your Hyundai just incase there are no covered parking spots available. Though it won’t protect your paint, it will help protect some of the materials in your car’s interior from excess sun exposure.
Fix Windshield Chips Immediately
If you have a windshield chip, visit the Hyundai dealership immediately. If you don’t, the chip will spread. This not only limits your visibility as a driver, but also increases the chances of the windshield collapsing inwards during a car accident.
