Higher Mileage Maintenance at Raceway Kia of Freehold

At 100,000 miles, your Kia will be thoroughly broken in with primary systems and components showing some wear. If you have followed the maintenance schedule diligently so far, you are well prepared to continue with the routine maintenance needed for the next 100,000. We have a few maintenance pointers for Kia vehicles at 100,000 miles or more, and we are fully prepared at Raceway Kia of Freehold to assist with the routine maintenance and repairs needed to get another 100,000.



What is Higher Mileage Maintenance all About?

The maintenance stakes have never been higher when a car makes it to 100,000 because routine maintenance and prompt repairs are the most important factors for reliable performance. Despite your Kia making it to 100,000 miles, the maintenance intervals continue in the same sequence and are increasingly vital to follow. Beyond continuing with the maintenance schedule, there are also a few services proven to help reduce risk and to extend the life of cars over 100,000 miles.

Multi-Point Vehicle Inspection

Getting routine multi-point vehicle inspections that provide a comprehensive assessment of all primary systems and components has never been more valuable. With all components showing some wear and tear, this is the best way to detect problems before they threaten performance. By getting a multi-point inspection twice per year for your Kia over 100,000 miles, you can limit performance risk by detecting and fixing component problems before they affect primary systems performance and your vehicle’s overall reliability.

Spark Plug Replacement

It is recommended that spark plugs are replaced at 100,000 miles if they have not been changed already. This will ultimately support smooth engine operation, fuel efficiency, and overall vehicle reliability.

Oil Changes

Oil changes are always important for reliable engine performance and life. It is vital to continue with oil changes as recommended and to not risk extended oil changes even if you have before. With the engine’s moving parts having 100,000 miles of friction and heat, oil changes at the recommended miles might be the single most important maintenance for the engine.


Nearly all primary systems, such as the engine, transmission, brakes, and power steering rely on fluids to perform best. Be sure to inspect all fluids at 100,000 miles and at every 7,500-mile interval after to ensure that they remain at their best to support the reliability of essential primary systems.


The engine, transmission, and fuel systems have filters that keep them clean. Be sure to inspect all filters routinely every 7,500 miles and replace them if they lose integrity.

What Happens When Routine Maintenance is Neglected?

With routine maintenance being the single most important way of getting the most out of your car, neglecting its maintenance is a choice to neglect its reliable performance and longevity. Putting off routine maintenance will ultimately invite increased wear and tear, poor engine performance, reduced fuel efficiency, increased safety risk, increased repairs, and will shorten the car’s life. Making the journey from 100,000 to 200,000 miles demands diligent maintenance and prompt repairs as needed.
