Manufacturer recommended maintenance may not seem like a big deal, especially if your car seems to be running fine. But it’s not something vehicle owners should ignore. Over time, parts within your vehicle will naturally wear and break; knowing the typical lifespan of each part, manufacturers estimate these breaking points and recommend maintenance intervals to help ensure vehicle performance and reliability. The typical 30/60/90K service checks are designed to address key pain points and preserve the lifespan of your vehicle. The 30,000-mile mark, for example, may only require a simple check-up, but most modern vehicles will have received several major service requirements by 90,000 miles. Generally, these items may include filter changes, fluid changes, and a comprehensive visual maintenance inspection as well as other items, depending on the specific mileage interval. Most any 30/60/90K service check-up will include the following items:
Four wheel tire rotation and computer spin balance
Tire pressure check and adjustment
Inspection and replacement of filters (air, cabin, fuel, etc)
Perform general visual maintenance inspection or vehicle’s parts and systems (tires, wheels, brakes, lights, belts, hoses, drive-train and fuel system, etc)
At higher mileage- spark plugs, belts, timing belt, as needed
Replacement of certain fluids (example cooling system cooling)
Vehicle road test
