The 2014 Hyundai Sonata is one of the many midsize sedans available on the market today. As a Hyundai, it is fairly simple to care for, and with the right steps you can easily get it to last for a long time.
Clean the Interior and Exterior
Cleaning the interior and exterior of your 2014 Hyundai Sonata won’t necessarily keep it running smoothly, but it can make a larger difference than you think. Dirt and debris inside your car can attract bugs or simply lead to scratches and rips on interior surfaces, such as the seats. Cleaning the exterior is sometimes even more important as it is this part of the vehicle that is exposed to various weather conditions. Keeping it clean will protect the paint as well as the metal underneath.
Read the Owner’s Manual
Most people who get a car feel that it is simply a waste of time to read the owner’s manual, but it is necessary in order to care for your Sonata. Even just skimming the manual will tell you everything you need to know about how your car should run, how often to take it in for maintenance, and what oils and other products to use.
Just reading about maintenance schedules is not enough; you need to actually take in your 2014 Sonata. Make sure that you have the engine checked regularly and that the tires are always in good shape. Also regularly get oil changes and flush out the cooling system.
Find a Good Mechanic
Sadly not all mechanics are created equal, so one of the best things you can do to care for your Hyundai is to take the time to find a good one. Find a mechanic that has experience not only with cars, but with the Sonata specifically. Ideally your mechanic should also use Hyundai parts.
Protect It from the Sun
One thing that most people don’t think of when it comes to caring for their cars is protecting them from the sun. Park in the shade to protect the interior and consider using a UV protectant designed to stop plastic and vinyl from drying out.
