Every 5,000 Miles

This is the first official look by our service team at your car. At this point, the tires should be rotated. This ensures they wear more evenly, so all four tires get a taste of operating on both the front and the back.

We’ll inspect and adjust all fluid levels, including coolant, transmission fluid and brake fluid to make sure the overall health of the vehicle is sound.

The 5,000-mile mark also prompts a visual inspection of the brake pads, calipers and rotors, along with a road test, so we can get a feel for how the car is performing.

Every 10,000 Miles

The cabin air filter will be replaced at this point. If you’ve noticed a lack of air flow through the air conditioning or heating system or even an odor coming from the vents, this might mean the air filter needs to be replaced. A clean air filter prevents dust and pollen from reaching the cabin.

This is also the time for an oil change. An oil change keeps the engine lubricated and allows its to fire up properly, so you can drive without issue. We’ll remove the old oil and replace it with fresh oil.

Every 15,000 Miles

  • Inspect axle shaft boots
  • Inspect ball joints and dust covers
  • Inspect the body
  • Inspect brake lines and hoses

An inspection of the engine coolant will also be completed. We’ll check for any leaks and look at the radiator as well to ensure it’s working properly.

Every 30,000 Miles

Your vehicle is only fun to drive if it’s safe to drive. That’s why the 30,000-mile mark means a change of the brake fluid, so your brakes work properly when you need them most.

The engine air filter will also be replaced. A clean air filter prevents dust, dirt and other contaminants from getting into the engine area.

This interval also includes inspecting:

  • Fuel lines and connections
  • Fuel tank cap gasket
  • Transmission for leakage
  • Brake rotor thickness

Every 60,000 Miles

Spark plugs are a critical part of the ignition system. When you put the key in the ignition and turn the car on, the ignition coil generates the spark which signals to the engine cylinders to start the engine. Spark plugs wear down over time and need to be replaced every 60,000 miles.
