What does it mean when your mechanic mentions that your vehicle needs basic automotive service? How do you know what kind of service is actually necessary for your vehicle? The term “automotive service” generally refers to the recommended schedule of maintenance items listed in your vehicle's owner's manual that is intended to keep your vehicle in tip-top operating condition. For example, it will list the mileage interval for oil changes, tire rotations, transmission flush, replacing the serpentine belt, just to name a few.

Because most maintenance items are fairly standard in the automotive industry, any independent automotive service center can perform the needed work. They are usually less expensive than dealerships for the same work. Plus, most auto shops have access to the manufacturer's technical service bulletins on how to fix problems or the routine maintenance associated with your particular model of vehicle.

What are the benefits of regular automotive service?

  1. Increase vehicle safety
  2. Increase vehicle performance and reliability
  3. Reduce the cost of automotive repair
  4. Reduce breakdowns while driving.

Federal law states that automotive service can be performed at any auto shop without affecting your warranty coverage. You are not required to go to the dealer where you bought the vehicle. However, if your car should be included in a recall for a potential problem, you may want to have it checked out at the dealership. And, before purchasing an extended warranty, it would be wise to read the fine print to see who must perform certain covered automotive service and repairs.
