Factory scheduled maintenance is essential to keeping your vehicle running at its best, making it a dependable long-term vehicle. Most manufacturers suggest that certain maintenance tasks be completed at mileage intervals, like every 5,000 miles, or 15,000 miles or 30,000 miles. Sometimes the manufacturer recommends a timed interval, like every 6 or 12 months. These maintenance visits can be done in conjunction with your oil changes. While it may be tempting to skip these mileage-based visits, the health of your vehicle and its resale value can be negatively affected if you do.
When you reach 30,000 miles, you should already have had many basic services performed such as oil changes, filters (engine air filter, cabin air filter, fuel filter) and tire rotations. At 30,000 miles, many wear items specific to your vehicle need inspection, and some fluids need to be replaced.
At 60,000 miles, you will need a repeat of the 30,000-mile service as well as replacement of coolant, most spark plugs and wires and/or coils, and many fluids. Vehicle specific inspections are performed, it’s another chance for the mechanics to catch potentially serious issues before a breakdown.
At this point, your car needs to have a repeat of the 30,000 mile inspection and replacements. We will get caught up on any services that have been delayed, assess the current overall condition of the vehicle, and make recommendations based on that condition. We thoroughly inspect your vehicle to help keep it safe on the road.
