The Hyundai Venue is a great choice if you’re looking for a small SUV that provides an impressive amount of cabin space while being compact enough for busy city roads as ones in Pensacola or Mobile. The Venue also has an affordable price tag compared to many other crossovers. You can get the best value out of your Venue by sticking to its routine maintenance schedule. Here at Allen Turner Hyundai, we can help you with all regular maintenance tasks and perform larger repairs if they become necessary. Here’s a Hyundai Venue maintenance guide to help you stay on track.

Routine Maintenance for the Venue

Hyundai recommends making a maintenance appointment for your Venue every 7,500 miles, which for most people is about a six-month interval between services. After the first 7,500 miles of driving, Hyundai advises you to change your engine oil and filter and get your tires rotated.

Regularly changing your engine oil is extremely important. Doing so ensures your engine’s components remain lubricated and protected against premature wear and tear. Tire rotations help ensure even treadwear, as uneven treadwear can result in having to replace your tires sooner.

After 15,000 miles, the maintenance schedule for your Hyundai Venue recommends changing your air filter, which is repeated at 15,000-mile intervals. After 30,000 miles of driving, you’ll need to flush the cooling system, which helps to guard against overheating in the engine. At 52,500 miles, we’ll replace your fuel filter. Your spark plugs need to be replaced after 60,000 miles, which equates to about five years of driving for most people. At the 100,000-mile mark, your spark plugs get replaced again, and the engine valves will be cleared.

Venue Brake Maintenance

Every time you stop by for your routine maintenance appointment, we can carry out a multi-point inspection to make sure that other parts of your Venue are in good working order. Over time, various parts of the braking system will need to be replaced or maintained.

Brake pads typically need changing out after two to three years, depending on your driving habits and the local roads. You’ll know it’s time for a brake pad replacement if you hear a squeaking sound when you hit the brake pedal. A warning strip built into brake pads, which is a thin strip of metal that alerts you when your pads are almost worn through, is often the cause of the squeak. Brake fluid also needs flushing from time to time to prevent contamination which can reduce the effectiveness of your braking and may lead to brake line damage.

Hyundai Battery Maintenance

Your battery provides the power to start your Venue and run your electronics when you’re idling, so it’s crucial to keep it in top shape.

Your battery’s life depends on various factors, including your driving habits and the average temperature where you do most of your driving. However, a good rule to follow is that your battery will need replacing after three or four years of driving. You’ll be able to tell that your battery is getting weaker and needs replacing soon if your Venue takes longer to start when you hit the start button. Alternatively, you might notice that your windows open and close more slowly than usual. We can check your battery’s output to help determine if it’s time for a new one.

Tire and Wheel Maintenance

In addition to tire rotations, there are other maintenance tasks associated with your tires and wheels you need to be aware of. A wheel alignment can become necessary if your wheels get knocked out of line because of rough terrain or a collision with another vehicle. Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment, we can accurately measure your wheel alignment and perform the job quickly and efficiently.

At some point, you’ll need to replace your tires. Tires typically last from 60,000 to 70,000 miles, although this estimate also depends on your driving habits and the tires you have. You can perform the penny test to see if your tires still have enough tread to drive with them safely or let one of our Hyundai-certified technicians perform a quick inspection to see if they’ve reached the end of their life.

Benefits of Hyundai Venue Maintenance

The main benefit to following your routine Venue maintenance schedule is that your Venue will continue to perform at its best for longer. For example, regularly changing your motor oil helps your engine reach its full power. Poorly maintained engines with contaminated oil fail to reach their potential for fuel efficiency because the engine has to work harder due to the added friction between its components. This means you’ll end up spending more at the pump because your Venue will need more fuel than usual.

A well-maintained Venue is less likely to need major repairs as it gets older compared to one that’s poorly maintained. You won’t be able to get around the fact that repair costs increase as your crossover ages, but performing routine maintenance reduces the risk of unexpected repair costs.

The regular inspections performed by our highly trained mechanics give them the chance to identify components that need replacing before they break or wear out. This approach is known as preventative maintenance, and it reduces the danger of worn-out parts causing more extensive damage to your vehicle.

Another bonus to maintaining your Venue is that it can obtain a better sales price a few years down the line if you decide to trade it in for a larger vehicle. Your Venue may even qualify for Hyundai’s CPO program, which can help you secure a much higher sales price than if you sell your used car on the private market. One basic requirement for the CPO program is a completed maintenance schedule.
