If you drive a lot of miles on a regular basis, it is wise to follow the car service schedule as recommended in your owner’s manual. This will help maintain your car so that it will be reliable transportation for many miles and years. It will also prevent unforeseen problems and expensive car repair.

Even though the key to keeping vehicles running well is routine vehicle maintenance, some drivers tend to procrastinate when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics. The Car Care Council conducted a survey in which they found:

  • 25% of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
  • 13% had low or contaminated brake fluid.
  • 18% had dirty air filters.
  • 17% had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.
  • 16% needed new windshield wipers and 27% had low or contaminated washer fluid.
  • 18% needed new belts
  • Overall, 89% of vehicles were in need of at least one service or repair.

As a conscientious vehicle owner, you should know these things to check during car service:

  • Check Frequently (every week or month)
    • Dashboard Indicator Lights On
    • Lights, exterior and interior
    • Tire Inflation and Condition
    • Windshield Washer Fluid
    • Engine Oil Level
  • Check Every 3 Months/ 3,000 Miles
    • Automatic Transmission Fluid
    • Battery and Cables
    • Engine oil and filter
    • Exhaust and muffler
    • Hoses and belts
    • Power Steering Fluid
  • Check Every 6 Months/6,000 Miles
    • Chassis Lubrication
    • Wiper Blades
  • Check every 12 Months/ 12,000 miles
    • Brakes
    • Cabin Air Filter
    • Coolant (Antifreeze)
    • Steering and Suspension
    • Wheel Alignment

Your auto shop will advise you as to what things to check during car service to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape. These checkups help to identify normal wear and tear as well when it is time to replace worn or broken parts, which if not repaired, will leave your car prone to breakdowns, leaving you stranded in the most inopportune times.
