Like most motorists, you want to take good care of your vehicle and may wonder how often should you get your car serviced? Simply stated, follow the recommended maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual for your car. There are two ways in which you will be reminded as to when to get your car serviced.

  • In-vehicle Maintenance Reminder Systems

If you drive a newer car, it probably has an in-vehicle maintenance reminder system that makes mileage-based schedules out-of-date. These reminder systems are good for various operating conditions and will illuminate a warning light in the dash panel when it is time for an engine oil change, fluid level checks, component inspections, and other vehicle maintenance services.

  • Mileage-Based Maintenance Service Intervals

Older cars have service intervals based on mileage. There are usually two different schedules, one for cars driven in “normal” operating conditions and another for “severe” operating conditions, such as primarily short trips of five miles or less, extreme climates, stop-and-go driving, towing a trailer or carrying heavy loads.

Tip to Remember: Plan ahead for vehicle maintenance items by finding a car repair shop and auto technician you can trust before you need them.
