In your vehicle handbook is a service schedule that tells you exactly when you should have all your preventative maintenance done. Hyundai does a nice job spreading these services out so they don’t all hit you at once, but there’s no question that these small items of preventative maintenance are the sorts of things that can keep you from having to deal with a broken-down vehicle later, and facing expensive towing and repairs in the aftermath.

One thing we do here at Hall Hyundai Elizabeth City to ensure vehicles run as intended is fluid flushes. They are not as common as oil changes, but transmission fluid flushes, antifreeze flushes, and even power steering and brake fluid flushes are sometimes necessary to make sure those systems are working as intended.

Of course, each one of those services is different. Transmission fluid flushes can be necessary as early as 30,000 miles or as late as 100,000 miles. It depends entirely on the vehicle and how hard your transmission has to work. Those who live in mountainous areas, for example, will need a flush much sooner than those who are not.

Engine coolant flushes are done at 60,000 miles for new Hyundai vehicles and then about once every 30,000 miles after that, but power steering flushes (once every 200,000 miles) are less common. Brake fluid flushes are dependent entirely on what a vehicle may need, which is why it’s important to have service technicians keep an eye on all fluids any time you come in for regular maintenance.

These types of preventative measures can keep your Hyundai vehicles working great for years and years, which is why the right fluid flush at the right time is an investment for the future of your automobile.
