Our Recommended Car Maintenance Schedule

After Every 7,500 Miles

After driving 7,500 miles around Fairfield, you’ll want to have your vehicle checked at our service center. When you bring your vehicle in at this mileage point, the following aspects will be checked/replaced:

  • Oil checked and changed
  • Vehicle diagnostics test run
  • Tire rotations
  • Top off fluids

After Every 15,000 Miles

After 15,000 miles on the road, your model will need the above services as well as a few more to keep it up and running longer. These services are important to have cleaned out and checked to ensure no damage is occurring and there’s no potential for further damage. These are the services provided:

  • Cabin air filter change
  • Brake fluid replacement
  • Parking brake adjustment
  • Inspection of the suspension, exhaust, and cooling systems

After Every 30,000 Miles

At the 30,000 mileage mark, all of the above services will be performed again. There will also be an inspection of the engine and spark plugs to make sure your vehicle isn’t showing wear and tear damage that could turn to bigger problems if not resolved. It’s better to be safe than sorry and have the works checked out to avoid this.
