Scheduled Maintenance Services

 Advances in automotive technology have resulted in vehicles that are better built and longer lasting; but no matter what the dealer's commercial may promise, they are not maintenance-free and parts do wear down. To ensure peak performance and that you get years of trouble-free driving, your manufacturer has developed a recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle, which is outlined in your owner's manual.

When should my car have Scheduled Maintenance?
There are two types of maintenance services - minor and major. Minor services are generally performed at 7,500, 15,000, 45,000 and 75,000 miles while major services are performed at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 mile intervals.
Often the car maker will break it down even further and describe 'normal' driving and 'severe' driving.

What are "minor services"?
While it varies by make and model, minor services generally include:
     Changing the oil and oil filter.
     Lubricating the chassis if it has not been factory sealed.
     Inspection of all fluids, filters, belts, hoses, brakes and emissions.
     Tire rotation (some manufacturers recommend as a part of a minor service).
What are "major services"?

While it varies by make and model, major services generally include:
     All minor services.
     The replacement of various filters, fluids and spark plugs.
     Timing belt replacement at the manufacturer’s recommended replacement interval.
     Other specified major services related to fuel delivery, emissions and ignition systems.

Will your service validate my warranty?
Scheduled maintenance service must be completed in order to keep your warranty valid, and we are authorized to perform  the services recommended by each manufacturer.

This service, like all services performed, is advised based on manufacturer’s recommendations, or as needed as determined by our inspection and based on industry standards.

We strongly advise that you have maintenance services performed based on the manufacturer’s suggested schedule. Additional services may also be recommended based on our inspection of the vehicle and industry standards.
