Maintenance Service Guide

It's relatively easy to take care of your car if done on a schedule. Maintenance visits should occur every three to four months. One good way to remember is by the change of seasons. Not every thing needs to be done each time you visit your mechanic, for instance, most cars only need a factory scheduled service twice a year, and regular maintenance will alleviate the need for you to wonder whether you're "tuned-up" all right.

Follow a factory maintenance schedule exactly as recommended if you are leasing, or if you anticipate having any problems with your warranty. It's a lot easier to prove your case if you can show you've done exactly what was recommended. Here's a general guide for what to do and when if you are not using a factory schedule:

  • 7,500 miles: Get a lubrication, oil and oil filter change, rotate tires, check brakes, and a complete safety check
  • 11,250 miles: Oil and oil filter change
  • 15,000 miles: Get a lubrication, oil and oil filter change, rotate tires, check brakes, and transmission check, clean air filter, and a complete safety check
  • 18,750 miles: Oil and oil filter change
  • 22,500 miles: Get a lubrication, oil and oil filter change, rotate tires, check brakes, and a complete safety check
  • 26,250 miles: Oil and oil filter change
  • 30,000 miles: Get a lubrication, oil and oil filter change, rotate tires, check brakes, replace air filter, sparkplugs, adjust valves (unless hydraulic) check timing, flush brake fluid, change transmission fluid, cooling system flush, and a complete safety check
