Regular checks

Regular Checks

Spend a few minutes regularly looking after your Hyundai, and it will give you the best possible performance, fuel economy and safety.

Key things to check are:
  • Oil
  • Brake fluid
  • Windscreen wash
Make sure their levels all sit between the minimum and maximum points, and that you can't see any leaks.
  • Tyre pressure
  • Tyre tread
Check tyres when they're cold – the correct pressures can be found inside the driver's door or in your service book.

Don't forget to inspect tyre tread regularly too. The legal level for tyre tread is 1.6mm, taken at 3 points across three quarters of the width of the tyre. Apart from being dangerous, an illegal bald tyre is liable for a maximum fine of up to £2500 and 3 penalty points per defective tyre.

If you need assistance, please visit your Hyundai dealer who'll be happy to check for you.
