Service Interval Information

How Often Should I Service My Car?

Having your vehicle properly maintained is extremely important to the performance and reliability of your vehicle. Moreover, a well maintained vehicle will bring more dollars at resale or trade in.

Recommended Oil Change Always refer to your owner's manual for the recommended servicing for your particular vehicle model and year, since service intervals can vary. These are some general guidelines to follow. Before the 15,000 mile servicing, you should be changing your oil and filter every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. Previously, the recommended interval was 3,000 miles, but synthetic oils now have a longer lifespan.

15,000-Mile Service

At this time, most vehicles are due for servicing. It might include an air filter, oil change, rotation of tires and inspection of key elements, such as brakes and cooling. This service might cost about $200.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed

30,000-Mile Service

Tire Rotation IntervalsAll of the previous items serviced at 15,000 miles will be included as well as a fuel filter, new transmission fluid and an inspection that is more thorough. You may not need to change the transmission fluid, and if changing spark plugs is suggested, it may not be necessary yet.

The items suggested previously for 30,000 miles will be included. For your 60,000 mile service, replacement of belts, hoses and valves that are wearing thin may be necessary. Depending on the brand of spark plugs used, it may now be time to change them.
