Your second major service for your car happens at 30,000 miles. The 30,000-mile service mark is your second chance to see how well your car has been maintained. The service team at Kwik Kar auto care has been doing these types of services in for years now. We have been trusted to handle models under the brand name of many different cars.
The 30,000-mile service is typically the second such requirement of a car's maintenance routine, although it can vary somewhat from manufacturer to manufacturer. Before you go for this service, spend a few minutes reading your car's manual, where the 30,000-mile service should be described.
As you keep and drive your car, it ages and starts needing maintenance. Soon it needs its first oil change, then its first maintenance service. At 30,000 miles, your car still feels new, but by this point, the owner’s manual clearly points out that a 30,000-mile service is needed.
Should you get the 30,000-mile service or not?
Here are some thoughts to consider when assessing if the 30,000-mile service is worth it.
First, there’s the warranty to consider. The proper service, as outlined in the owner’s manual, needs to be done in order to keep the warranty valid. If you decide to skip the recommended 30,000-mile service, and then try to go in for a warranty issue, you may be turned away.
Second, even though your vehicle still feels new, it is usually 2 – 4 years old by the time it needs its 30,000-mile service. Just as you would take a child into the doctor for health checkups, you want to do the same thing for your “baby on 4 wheels”, your beloved automobile. By keeping up on regular maintenance, you can ensure your vehicle remains safe and fully operational.
it is illegal for a dealership or your car's manufacturer to void your warranty just because you chose to get your service done somewhere else. If you can prove that your maintenance on the broken part is up to date, the dealer has to honor your warranty coverage. If the dealer claims that poor maintenance actually caused the damage, they have to be able to prove it.
