Car Maintenance Schedule

Checking Oil

Every vehicle has been designed and manufactured to the highest specifications, but to keep yours running in prime condition you’ll need to keep up with basic maintenance. That’s why there’s a handy regular maintenance schedule for you to follow. All it takes is bringing your vehicle in to our service center whenever you reach mileage intervals or monthly periods.

Read on for a closer look at what needs to be done and when you’ll be arranging it.

Every Three Months or 3,000 Miles

Once you pass 3,000 miles or hit the three month mark, you’ll need to have the following vehicle maintenance checks performed:

  • Engine oil and air filter
  • Fuel filter
  • All lights, inside and out
  • Tire pressure, tread, and wear
  • Automatic transmission
  • Power steering
  • Wiper fluid levels

  • Chassis lubrication
  • Windshield wipers
  • Vehicle polish
  • Car battery and cables

Every 12 Months or 12,000 Miles

At 12,000 miles or twelve months, it’s time to perform these yearly checks, plus the three-month and six-month checks:

  • Coolant levels
