Maintenance Schedule

Kia Vehicle Maintenance Schedule

While the Comox Valley and Vancouver Island as a whole tends to have a milder winter climate compared to other parts of Canada, Kia considers Canada a "severe climate" as a whole. As a result, your owner's manual recommends that you bring your Kia Forte, Optima, Sorento, Sportage, Rio, or Soul in for service every 6 months or 6,000 km.
