Parts and Service FAQ

Get to know a bit more about what goes into caring for your Hyundai car here at our Williamsville, NY service center


In a lot of ways, your Hyundai car is like your health; it takes work to maintain it over time. Sure, Hyundai cars are well-known for reliability, and that fact has drawn drivers from Buffalo to West Seneca to Transitowne Hyundai year after year. But even with their outstanding fit and finish and standard-setting construction, you'll still need to bring your Hyundai car to a certified Hyundai service center for repairs from time to time.


Now, here at our Williamsville, NY Hyundai service center, we're proud to say that we employ some seriously unapologetic gearheads at our service center. Technically, they prefer to be called certified Hyundai service technicians, but we like to think that "unapologetic gearheads" speaks a bit more to the wealth and depth of Hyundai technician expertise they bring to the table.


But not everyone is a gearhead, and if you don't know the difference between a head gasket and differential seals, that's okay…but you should still know a few things about caring for your Hyundai car and some of the warning signs to look out for that scream, "Get in touch with the service team at Transitowne Hyundai". That's why we've got a brief rundown of answers to Frequently Asked Questions about Hyundai service that you should know.


First thing's first, let's chat about Hyundai oil changes…


Unless you're driving an electric model like the Hyundai Kona Electric, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, or Hyundai NEXO Fuel Cell, almost all Hyundai cars need oil changes from time to time, but the interval at which you should have your oil and oil filter changed can vary depending on your driving habits.


Okay, so how often should I have the oil changed on my Hyundai car?


If you're driving a newer Hyundai car, a good rule of thumb to stick to is changing your oil and oil filter roughly every 6 months or 7,500 miles. Now, this can vary from model to model, so it's always best to consult your owner's manual or speak with one of the certified Hyundai service advisors at our dealership near Cheektowaga to find out how often you should be paying us a visit.


What sort of tires does my Hyundai need?


Well, ones that are the right size and approved for use on your Hyundai car for starters. You can find out what size tires are right for your Hyundai car by checking your owner's manual, checking the sticker with your tires' size on it located at your Hyundai car's driver's side door jamb, or just reading the size right off the side wall of your current tires.


As for finding approved Hyundai tires for your vehicle, it's always best to consult with the team here at our Certified Hyundai service center near Kenmore, NY. With Hyundai-approved snow tires for wintertime driving, all-season tires for the rest of the year, and even performance tires for sportier models like the Hyundai Veloster, it's easy to find a set for your vehicle at a competitive price when shopping with us.


In fact, for all your genuine Hyundai parts needs, whether it be oil filters, tires, brake pads, or anything else you might require, you can count on the team here at our Williamsville, NY certified Hyundai service center to furnish you with just what you're looking for at a competitive price.
