Your Car



  • Heavy commuter
    This is a car most likely to have its warranty expire by miles rather than months. Those who drive across county lines know the most how hard it is on their car. We generally recommend minor services every 3-5 thousand miles, an intermediate service around 15,000 intervals, and major services at 60,000 or 90,000 miles, depending on the manufacturer specs.
  • Grocery getters
    This is a car that will only leave town occasionally These cars generally are driven less than 100 miles a week. Warranty periods usually expire with the mileage and months close. Minor services should probably be performed around 5,000 miles, intermediate services between 15,000 and 20,000 mile intervals.

  • Sunday cars
    This is sometimes a sentimental car, a classic, or other vehicle of high value. Mileage is probably not a good basis for service intervals. An annual schedule can be arranged, but will vary significantly by model of car.

All cars are different. The goal with vehicle maintenance is to keep a car comfortable and reliable for as long a span of time as the cost doesn't get out of hand. For most cars manufactured in the past few years, it is not unreasonable to expect 15 years or 250,000 miles out of a car that is maintained properly.
