Top Tips for Maintaining Your Hyundai: Expert Advice from Our Service Department


At Fredericton Hyundai, we understand that your vehicle is a significant investment, and we're committed to helping you protect it. Proper maintenance is crucial to ensuring your Hyundai runs efficiently and safely for years to come. Our experienced service department is here to provide you with expert advice on how to best care for your vehicle. In this blog post, we'll share our top tips for maintaining your Hyundai, following Canadian guidelines and the metric system.


  1. Regular Oil Changes:

Changing your engine oil regularly is one of the most critical maintenance tasks you can perform. Fresh oil lubricates and cools the engine, reducing friction and minimizing wear. Consult your owner's manual or Hyundai Canada's maintenance schedule for the recommended oil change interval, and be sure to use the appropriate oil grade for your Hyundai model.


  1. Tire Maintenance:

Properly maintained tires enhance your vehicle's performance and improve safety and fuel efficiency. Routinely check your tire pressure in kilopascals (kPa), and adjust it according to your owner's manual. Rotate your tires every 8,000 to 12,000 kilometres to ensure even wear and prolong their lifespan. Additionally, have your tires balanced and alignment checked periodically to prevent uneven wear and maintain optimal handling.


  1. Brake Inspections:

Your vehicle's brakes are essential for safety, so it's crucial to have them inspected regularly at our Hyundai Service Center. Have your brake pads and rotors checked for wear during routine maintenance visits, and replace them as needed. You should also monitor your brake fluid levels and replace the fluid as recommended by your owner's manual.


  1. Battery Maintenance:

A dead battery can leave you stranded, so it's essential to keep your battery in good working condition. Check for any corrosion around the terminals, and clean them as needed. Test your battery's charge every six months to ensure it's holding power, and replace it when necessary.


  1. Replace Filters:

Your Hyundai has several filters that help keep your engine, cabin, and fuel system clean. Regularly replacing these filters prevents contaminants from causing damage or reducing efficiency. Consult your owner's manual for recommended replacement intervals for your air, cabin, and fuel filters.


  1. Fluid Checks:

Aside from engine oil and brake fluid, your Hyundai relies on other essential fluids, such as transmission fluid, coolant, and power steering fluid. Regularly check the levels of these fluids in litres and top them off as needed. Refer to your owner's manual for guidance on when to replace these fluids.


  1. Inspect Belts and Hoses:

Belts and hoses are vital components of your Hyundai's engine and cooling system. Routinely inspect them for signs of wear, cracks, or leaks. Replace any damaged belts and hoses promptly to prevent further damage and potential breakdowns.




Regular maintenance is essential to keep your Hyundai running at peak performance and ensuring its longevity. By following these expert tips from our service department at Fredericton Hyundai, you can help protect your investment and enjoy your Hyundai for years to come.
