Why is it important to schedule mileage maintenance for your car?
Routine maintenance is critical in order to keep a car running properly and to be covered under your vehicle’s warranty.
It can be easy to forget these important check-ups if your vehicle is running well however, these preventative measures are what keeps your car from breaking down.
Listed below are some general guidelines; however, each car is different.
It is important to refer to your owner’s manual to see the recommendation for your specific make and model.
*Every 3,000 to 7,000 Miles
The oil and oil filter should be replaced according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Furthermore, inspection of the transmission fluid level, coolant, power steering fluid, windshield washer fluid and wipers, tires and all exterior lights is also encouraged.
*Interval Mileage Check Ups
It is recommended that you get your car a preventative check-up at approximately 30,000, 60,000, 90,000 and 105,000. Again, each car’s make and model will have manufacturer recommendations however, these are good approximate reference points.
You should also take into consideration whether your car is used under more “normal” circumstances or, if you are a high mileage user based on a long commute or a heavy local driving. If you fall into one of the above categories, you will need to bring it in more frequently.
A qualified auto mechanic will ensure that the preventative maintenance checks that need to be done as your car ages, are evaluated at the correct mileage points.
