Scheduled Maintenance Pleasant Hill

We are told to go see the doctor once a year even if we don’t feel like anything is wrong. Well, this is the same with your car.  The beauty of scheduled maintenance for your vehicle is they have tested all the parts in your vehicle and know when they need to be maintained. There is very little speculation at this point.

The paper weight in your glove box, also known as your Owner’s Manual may be as boring as a box of rocks. However, it is the blueprint of exactly how to keep your car in great condition.

To define a great condition, some cars who have not kept up with scheduled or preventive maintenance could have a lifespan of fewer than 100,000 miles.

A vehicle owner who stays on top of their maintenance could see a lifespan of 200,000 to 300,000 miles with lower repair and possibly no surprise costs. A sure fire way of keeping within your budget is to stay on top of your scheduled maintenance.

The easiest way to do this gives us a call, we have records of every make and model on the road and exactly when to perform the scheduled maintenance for proper auto care.

Below is not an exact maintenance schedule but a general schedule to give you an idea of what is checked at what intervals to keep your car maintained.
