Hyundai Sonata Maintenance Schedule


Preventative maintenance-oil changes, tire rotations, inspections, etc at routine intervals-is the key to getting the best possible performance from your vehicle. If you own a Hyundai Sonata and aren't sure when to bring your car in for maintenance or what the appropriate Hyundai Sonata oil change frequency is, you've come to the right place.

In the following Hyundai Sonata maintenance schedule, Action Hyundai of Millville will review the milestone visits you need to meet to keep your Sonata running like new while you travel Cape May County, Cumberland County, and beyond.  

Maintenance Visit 1: At 7,500 Miles

When your Hyundai Sonata's odometer is approaching the 7,500-mile mark, it's time to get your first service visit scheduled. At this visit, a certified Hyundai technician will perform a duo of important services.* They'll change the car's motor oil and replace the filter to protect the engine and rotate the tires to ensure even tread wear. They'll also inspect the air cleaner filter and the vacuum hose.

Maintenance Visit 2: At 15,000 Miles

At 15,000 miles, your Sonata is due for its second oil change and tire rotation. It's also time to replace the air conditioning filter and thoroughly inspect the brakes and steering systems to make sure that everything is in good condition.

Here's the fine print of what needs to be inspected:

  • All brake elements (hoses, lines, discs/pads, calipers, and rotors)
  • Exhaust system (pipe and muffler)
  • Drive shafts and boots
  • Steering gear box, linkage, mounting bolts, and arm ball joints

Visits 3 and 4: At 22,500 Miles and 30,000 Miles

Your Hyundai Sonata's third maintenance visit should take place at 22,500 miles. The only services required at this appointment are the items listed in the first required service set (oil change and tire rotation).

At 30,000 miles, these services will be needed again as well as the inspection and replacement items from maintenance visit 2. A technician will also replace the air cleaner filter and inspect the car's fuel system and other functions, including:

  • Fuel filter plus all hoses, lines, and connections
  • Fuel tank air filter
  • Vapor hose and fuel filler cap
  • Ventilation hose and crankcase
  • Brake fluid

Visit 5 and Beyond: Sonata Maintenance Pattern

Once you've made it to your fifth maintenance visit, the routine checkups and changes required will continue to repeat, alternating between the core services from maintenance visit 1 (every 7,500 miles) and the more in-depth requirements of visits 2 (every 15,000 miles) and 4 (every 30,000 miles).

That means:

  • At 37,500 miles, maintenance visit 1 services are due.
  • At 45,000 miles, maintenance visit 2 services are due.
  • At 52,500 miles, maintenance visit 1 services are due.
  • At 60,000 miles, maintenance visit 4 services are due.
