Once you've got your hands on your new Kia, it's likely that you'll go through the first few weeks being extremely particular about how you take care of it. You'll pounce on food crumbs, clean out the console and look twice at any one climbing in with muddy shoes.

This is entirely understandable, as you have the state that your car was in the day you drove out of the Kia dealership fresh in your mind. Your determination to preserve the pristine 'new car' feeling is a noble one, but you'll also need to consider how you're going to keep things in order under the bonnet. 

While being a careful driver has a lot to do with the amount of wear and tear your Kia is subjected to in its lifetime, the best way to keep it running smoothly is through regular servicing by a professional. But when, and where, should you do this? 

How often should I take my Kia to be serviced? 

In short, the older your car, the more often it will need servicing. With a new automatic transmission Kia under four years old, you should expect to schedule a regular servicing once every 12 months, or every 20,000 kilometres, according to Tower Insurance.

You can also refer to your owner's manual for a closer estimation for your specific model's servicing requirements. 

Where can I find a reputable mechanic to service my Kia? 

Fortunately, your pursuit for a reliable mechanic to look after your car will be a short one, for you have three great locations to choose from. In Sydney, both Peter Warren Kia in Warwick Farm and Macarthur Kia in Narellan have a professional Service Department on site. The same goes for Sunshine Kia, our Gold Coast dealership that provides servicing to the local area in Southport.
