Regular Maintenance Eliminates Problems

It's often easy to forget about your vehicle's scheduled maintenance, but by taking care of scheduled service when it's needed, you can avoid costly repairs and stay safe on the road.

Your maintenance goes a long way

All cars have maintenance schedules recommended by their manufacturers, but those schedules only apply if there are no irregularities with the operation of your vehicle. 

To qualify for normal maintenance, the car can’t be used to tow a trailer, driven in a dusty environment or used off-road. The car also must be driven until it is fully warmed under highway conditions. Unfortunately, these conditions don’t apply to most cars.

Since very few cars qualify for the normal maintenance schedule, they must be maintained using the severe-use maintenance schedule. This maintenance schedule should be used if any of the following are true about the car’s use:

  • Most trips with the car are less than 5 – 10 miles
  • The car is often driven in stop and go traffic
  • The car is used to pull a trailer or has a roof carrier
  • The car is used for commercial purposes

Scheduled maintenance – a matter of safety

Most drivers are aware of the need to change their car’s oil and filter but may not be aware of the additional steps required to keep their vehicle in top running condition.

Inspection of key car systems such as air filters, brakes, traction control systems, and tires are critical to the health and safety of a car and its occupants.

An ASE-certified technician is trained to spot potential problems and save the car’s owner and passengers additional cost and the inconvenience created by flat tires and road-side breakdowns.
