Preparing Your Kia for the Road

Regular Maintenance Items

You probably keep your Kia in great shape by following its recommended maintenance schedule. Even so, before you leave on a long trip, it is great to start with all of your maintenance items refreshed, including:

  • Check the air pressure in all tires and inspect for wear
  • Check your air filter
  • Check all lights and signals
