Frequently Asked Questions about Service

  • How often does your new car need to be serviced?

Each of our new models come with their individual service needs, but the general understanding is that the more you change your oil, the longer the engine will last. It's really important to ensure that your oil is being changed no more than every 10,000 miles. Some newer oils and engines can lengthen the distance between services, but more often than not you should just be relying on the oil levels within your vehicle.

  • How soon after purchasing a vehicle should you bring it in?

We like to recommend to our drivers that their vehicles should at least be seen by mechanics once per year. If you're a more frequent driver, you might find yourself with more service appointments to match the time behind the wheel. In terms of when you should make your first visit after purchasing or leasing a model, simply follow the instructions given by the model's manual. Typically that means stopping in after your first 5,000 or 7,500 miles, but it's important to know your model's specific timing.

  • What's the difference between a local mechanic and a certified technician?

While both a mechanic and certified technician focus on the maintenance of your vehicle, there is a big difference between the quality of service that you can expect from a local mechanic and our team of certified technicians. The latter benefit from a well-versed knowledge in a particular brand or set of vehicles; our technicians are experts with Kia models, which makes them ideal for our Service Center. Local mechanics, on the other hand, don't tend to have extensive knowledge regarding a particular brand, but rather have experience with fixing general vehicle problems.

Whether you're looking for advice on servicing your new Kia model or just have your heart set on our top-notch quality of service, the team at Kia Downtown Los Angeles is a local solution you can trust with your vehicle of choice.
