Brake Service and Replacement

For obvious reasons, keeping your brakes properly maintained is a critical part of your vehicle's routine maintenance. Brakes that are improperly cared for are a serious hazard, not only to the driver and their vehicle, but to other vehicles, pedestrians, and property. You, and those around you, rely on your brakes every time you're behind the wheel; but, because they're out of sight, they're often out of mind. It's common to forget about them until something sounds or feels wrong, which is why brake inspections are an especially important part of a regular maintenance schedule. At Huffines Hyundai McKinney, our expert service technicians know your vehicle inside and out, and they have the tools, equipment, and genuine OEM parts to ensure your car stays in top condition.

Signs Brakes Need Replacement

Apart from common tell-tale sounds like grinding or squeaking, there are ways your car behaves that may indicate a problem with the braking system:

  • Shaking or shuddering
  • Brake pedal feels spongy
  • Brake pedal feels unusually firm
  • Vehicle pulls to the side
  • The (ABS) warning light illuminates

What Is Covered in a Brake Inspection?

When you bring your vehicle in for inspection, or service technicians will examine the following:

  • Brake pad thickness and wear pattern
  • Brake line integrity
  • Caliper integrity (no leaks or movement)
  • Brake fluid levels and condition
  • ABS sensors
  • Rotors (checking for hots spots, grooves, misalignment

When to Inspect and Service Brakes

Hyundai recommends having your brakes inspected whenever you get your tires rotated, every six months or 7,500 miles. That also happens to be the recommended time frame for an oil change, so it's easy to knock all three important maintenance items out in one visit. A middle-ground expectation for brake-pad life is around 50,000 miles depending on driving habits.

Hyundai Oil and Filter Changes

Why Does Your Vehicle Need an Oil Change?

The most common vehicle maintenance item is also the most critical to its longevity and performance. Your car's engine contains many metal parts that rub against each other thousands of times per minute. Without proper lubrication, friction causes heat to quickly build up, parts to grind and score, and the engine to fail in a matter of minutes. But lubrication isn't the oil's only function. Oil absorbs heat (which breaks down the oil) and removes contaminates by bringing them through the oil filter. The oil filter does a great job removing most of the contaminants; but residual metal, dirt, and soot particles accumulate over time, which is why regular oil changes are imperative.

When Does Your Vehicle Need an Oil Change?

While it would certainly ensure engine cleanliness and top performance, the old "every 3,000 miles" rule has been obsolete for many years. Advances in engine technology and oil refinement have led to a significant increase in the distance your vehicle can travel before an oil change is necessary (under typical driving conditions). The generally recommended oil change interval is every 7,500 miles. While some vehicles can travel up to 10,000 miles using fully synthetic oil, 7,500 miles is also the recommended interval for a brake inspection and tire rotation, so it's convenient to take care of all these items at the same time.

Should I Use Synthetic or Conventional Oil in My Hyundai?

Synthetic oil is cleaner, more durable, works better in extreme conditions, and offers superior protection and lubrication. Conventional oil is less expensive.

If you have questions about oil change service and your vehicle's recommended maintenance schedule, get in touch with our service department today. We're always happy to help.

Tire Inspection, Rotation, and Replacement

Good tire performance is more than rolling you from point A to point B. Improperly cared for tires can have a serious effect on the performance, safety, and fuel economy of your vehicle. Proper tire maintenance involves checking and servicing four main indicators:

  • Even tread wear
  • Total tread wear
  • Tire inflation
  • Overall tire condition

When to Rotate Hyundai Your Tires

Front tires turn your vehicle, rotating back and forth under load against the asphalt. This causes them to wear faster than the rear tires, which generally roll straight. Rotating your tires every 7,500 miles lets each one spend time at the front and back, ensuring they wear evenly. If tires are left on the front too long, they can wear down faster, negatively affecting traction and handling, and requiring replacement much sooner than normal.

When to Change Tires on Your Hyundai

A car tire has life-expectancy of between 30,000 and 50,000 miles. However, the exact timeline to change your tires depends on factors like tread wear, tire age, and exposure to extreme conditions. Visual indications that your tires need replacement include cracking, bulging, rapid loss of pressure, and worn tread.

To check your tires tread depth, insert a penny head-first into the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, the tread is beyond its minimum safe depth and it's time for replacement.

Recommended tire pressure for your vehicle can be found on a sticker inside the driver-side door. Between 32 psi and 35 psi is typical for most cars. If you have any questions about proper tire inflation, tire condition, tire rotations, or tire replacements. Get in touch with one of our service center experts today. We'll be happy to assist you.

Battery Service

The battery in your vehicle has a tough job. Not only is it responsible for starting your engine, it keeps the lights running and powers all the accessories, including the A/C, the infotainment system, cabin lighting, and more. If it's not working properly, neither is your beloved ride.

Signs You May Need a Battery Replacement

You don't have to wait until your battery no-longer holds a charge to know that it's time for a change. Here are some indications to watch out for:

  • Sluggish engine turnover
  • Battery light or check engine light illumination
  • Battery leakage
  • Terminal corrosion
  • Swollen Battery Case
  • Dimmed headlights
  • Dimmed cabin and accessory lights, especially in combination with A/C operation

When to Test Your Hyundai's Battery

Depending on driving habits and operating conditions, a car battery can last for five years or longer. However, after three years it's important to have your battery's charge and condition annually inspected, to preempt serious issues that may come up further down the road.

If you're having battery problems, bring your vehicle in to Huffines Hyundai McKinney, where we have the equipment, tools, and knowledge to diagnose and service your vehicle, and a full inventory of model-specific OEM batteries if a replacement is necessary. For more information about battery service and replacement, give us a call or contact us online and we'll be happy to assist you.
