No matter what type of vehicle you happen to drive, the manufacturer has prescribed a regular maintenance schedule to keep your car or truck running at its best. This is commonly called factory scheduled maintenance. Many drivers see this maintenance schedule as optional—after all, why take the car in if it's still running? However, this schedule is not simply a ploy to get you to spend money at the auto repair shop—it's important for the overall health of your vehicle and to avoid costly and avoidable repairs later on.
Why do i need 90,000-mile service?
The factory scheduled maintenance at 90k miles is essential for your vehicle. Kwik Kar auto care helps drivers in PFLUGERVILLE and the surrounding areas keep their vehicle in prime condition with professional service. Whether you have a Toyota, Honda, Subaru, Mercedes, Nissan, Audi, Dodge, Ford, Volkswagen, Land Rover, BMW, or other vehicle, check your owner’s manual to ensure you are up-to-date on maintenance.
Here are reasons why:
- Following your maintenance schedule can prevent large and expensive problems down the road. Maintenance can spot small problems or identify areas of concern that can be fixed immediately, potentially saving hassle, time, and money down the road
- Depending on the warranty on your vehicle, it may require you to follow the 30/60/90k maintenance schedule. Putting off necessary maintenance may void your warranty
- Keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape with factory scheduled maintenance will help it retain its value and make it easier to resell
What does the maintenance involve?
Typically, the first step in the 90K maintenance is to inspect the vehicle's major systems for signs of problems, followed by any of the following maintenance procedures as needed:
- Oil change
- Timing belt replacement
- Replace hoses
- Fuel system cleaning
- Battery service
- Check brake pads
- Tire rotation and/or replacement
- Complete inspection
- Turn or replace rotors
- Replace spark plugs
- Transfer case fluid change
While factory scheduled maintenance may be required as part of your warranty, that doesn't mean the dealership has to do the maintenance, although they like to make it seem that way. Your warranty will remain intact as long as you have the service performed by a certified auto repair specialist.
