Factory Scheduled Maintenance
It can be difficult to keep up with the various maintenance and upkeep items needed to keep a car or truck running smoothly. That’s why most automobile manufacturers recommend that you schedule maintenance at various intervals—full inspections, part replacements, recalibrations, and more, all designed to extend the life and optimize the performance of the vehicle.
Recommended Car Maintenance Schedule
Service intervals will differ from one vehicle to the next, largely dependent on the manufacturer. The recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle is likely located somewhere in the owner’s manual; if you can’t locate it there, you can always contact the manufacturer.
Alternatively, you can schedule an appointment with one of Meineke’s service technicians for a full 23-point inspection. Following the inspection, the trusted technician can determine an appropriate maintenance schedule for your vehicle.
Routine Car Maintenance Schedule
Routine car maintenance entails several services. Oil changes, filter changes, and tire rotations are examples of service your vehicle needs fairly regularly.
Other maintenance items that may not need to be performed as often include services such as brake replacements or transmission fluid refills. But it is important to ensure that these services are performed as needed, as outlined by the factory maintenance schedule.
Your Preventative Car Maintenance Schedule
The most important thing to note is that through preventative maintenance, you can keep your car running the way it’s supposed to while minimizing the chances of a more serious and expensive problem arising down the road.
