Factory-recommended maintenance includes all the service items your vehicle’s manufacturer suggests. Whether it’s an oil change, tire rotation, fluid exchange, engine tuneup, or any other service suggested by the manufacturer, each one is critical. The majority of factory-recommended maintenance services should be performed every 30,000 miles. It’s vital to have the suggested services at the intervals suggested by the manufacturer. Here are a few reasons why:

Maintenance helps prolong the life of your vehicle and maximize your return on investment.

Maintenance ensures your warranty remains intact. If your vehicle has a warranty, every manufacturer or warranty company will require you to have maintenance. Neglecting to have the suggested services can result in your warranty being voided.

Maintenance helps save you money. When you have maintenance, our mechanic can spot smaller or minor issues before they evolve into more expensive repairs.

Maintenance bolsters the resale value of your vehicle. Car shoppers will pay more for a well-kept and well-maintained vehicle.

How Often Should I Have Factory-Recommended Maintenance?

Preventative maintenance is a much broader approach, extending beyond the manufacturer’s recommendations. During preventative maintenance at Wheeland’s Auto & Truck Service, your technician completes the checklist from the owner’s manual, ensuring they address every issue on the list. We will also perform several other inspections and services to protect your vehicle and maximize performance.

For example, if we notice worn parts or components, we can proactively replace this part before it impacts other parts or causes a breakdown. In either case, the benefits of preventative maintenance are essentially the same as factory-recommended maintenance.
