Proper auto maintenance can be a real guessing game these days. Should you follow the schedule in your owner’s manual or bring your car in more frequently? We’ve been around long enough to remember the days when following the manufacturer’s recommended service intervals would ensure a long life for your vehicle and you could pass your automobile down to new drivers in the family – sometimes across more than one generation. That’s not how things are now though.
Vehicle manufacturers or dealers suggest tuning your vehicle before 100,000 miles and that the new synthetic fluids are “lifetime” rated and you can go 15,000 miles between oil changes. But what does “lifetime” mean? Certainly not in our lifetime!
These infrequent service schedules may be appealing if you lease your vehicle or only plan to keep it for a few years, but what if you plan to hold onto your vehicle for a long time? Unfortunately, if you maintain your vehicle according to the manufacturer’s specifications, don’t expect your vehicle to last more than 70,000 miles without requiring major repairs. The manufacturer considers vehicle lifetime to be 8-10 years or 100,000 miles, but if you are like us, you plan to keep your car well past this “lifetime,” especially in the current economy.
If your vehicle is more valuable to you than the manufacturer’s service interval implies, contact us, and we can suggest a more stable routine schedule to help improve the longevity of your vehicle. At The Car Place, we understand how your vehicle operates and will help you pinpoint your vehicle’s special needs to keep your ride smooth and reliable.
