There are some drivers on the road who don’t keep up with the preventative vehicle maintenance needed to keep their vehicle in good operating condition. As long as their car gets them from Point A to Point B, it is probably the furthest thing on their mind during a busy day. Or it could be that they just don’t have the money in their budget for seemingly unnecessary items.

However, the cost of repairs for the damage that could be taking place, such as in the engine, transmission, or suspension systems (just to name a few) will definitely be greater than actually paying for the recommended vehicle maintenance. It really doesn’t save you money by extending the time intervals between the recommended services.

Do you know what regular maintenance should be done on a car? Typically, minor services are generally performed at 7,500, 15,000, 45,000 and 75,000 miles while major services are performed at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000-mile intervals. Although the major car services are not performed as frequently, they need to be done to protect the warranty, maintain safety, and boost the resale value of your vehicle.

Depending on the make and model of your vehicle, here are some of the vehicle maintenance items (both minor and major) that you should think about and have checked frequently:

  • Oil changes--follow the appropriate interval for your car and also replace the filter
  • Tire service--rotation, alignment, balancing, air pressure (including the spare)
  • Car battery--check the charge, clean the terminals
  • Inspect all fluids, filters, belts, hoses, spark plugs, brakes, and emissions--top-off or replace as necessary
  • Windshield wipers--replace about every six months, especially if you live in a rainy climate
  • Replace burned out lights--you need to see and be seen
  • Replace the timing belt and/or serpentine belt at the recommended mileage interval.
  • Service the air conditioner/heater
  • Other services related to the fuel delivery, emissions and ignition systems.

There are two main benefits of keeping up with vehicle maintenance. First, your mechanic can let you know what may need to replaced right away, or what can wait a while. Secondly, you can drive with peace of mind knowing that you have a reliable and safe source of transportation.

Good drivers should be aware of what regular maintenance should be done on a car. The first place to check is the car maintenance schedule listed in your owner’s manual.
