What Is The Car Maintenance Schedule

What things need attention?

The Maintenance Schedule specifies how often you should have your car serviced and what things need attention. Every car has its own set of individual characteristics.

It is essential that you have your car serviced as scheduled to retain its high level of safety, dependability, and emissions control performance. To keep these in great condition, your car will have a list of good maintenance best practices, developed by the manufacturer and described in your Owners Manual (OM).

Many people haven't adjusted their thinking to keep pace with new car maintenance schedules. The preoccupied still run their daily drivers without service until the dash warning lights burn out, while over-achievers fret about running synthetic oil more than 2,500 miles without a change. Owners manuals for cars have put together a set of general guidelines, but we recommend that you always follow your owners manual.
