A new car's first scheduled service appointment is usually at 15,000 miles. 15000 mile is the first major mile many car manufacturers suggest auto maintenance service be performed. However, always refer to the owner's manual, dealer or authorized service professional for the particular service and intervals required.
This service generally involves an oil and filter change, tire rotation, and a safety inspection, as well as possible replacement of the engine air filter and cabin air filter. While changing the oil, we will visually inspect the brakes, belts and hoses, inspect for any fluid leaks, listen for any abnormal noises, and pay attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
When a 15000 mile service is performed on your car, not only will your car run better, but it will last longer. People often skip this important step and think that they can “get away with” missing a regular mileage service. Like many other people on a tight budget, you may think your car doesn’t sound so bad, so there’s no problem. Sound familiar?
At or about 15,000 miles is when your car hits the "intermediate service" threshold. Our car experts will perform a thorough multi-point inspection, drain and replace your engine oil, replace your oil filter, top off all fluids, replace the cabin air filter and replace the engine air filter utilizing Genuine filters and Fluids. In addition, we will rotate the tires on the car, adjust all belts, adjust the parking brake and adjust the clutch if applicable.

The problem is your car sometimes won’t reveal what’s wrong until it’s too late. Most problems happen quickly, and before you know it, that little sound means your car won’t start. Preventative maintenance and a mileage service at 15,000 miles could have kept that problem in check.
