While a standard lube, oil and filter service is the most common maintenance service you can do for your vehicle, the fact is that following your vehicle’s manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule is the best way to keep your vehicle performing the way it was meant to perform. Your browser does not support video>Keeping up with scheduled maintenance is also the most cost-effective way to keep your vehicle running well over time. Not only that, but keeping up on scheduled maintenance is also a good way to help preserve your vehicle’s resale or trade-in value.Ideally, scheduled maintenance services should begin when your car is new. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Doing scheduled maintenance helps to prevent you from having to pay a lot for major repairs later on down the road. It also helps you plan ahead for your vehicle repair costs rather than trying to pay for major repairs all at once.

At Amazing Auto Repair and Transmission, we service all vehicle makes and models. The scheduled maintenance for your vehicle may differ based on your particular vehicle, your mileage, the type of driving you do, as well as other factors. In general, we recommend preventative maintenance services every 30,000 miles or 24 months, whichever comes first. Some of the items that we inspect during a scheduled maintenance service include:

  • Changing engine oil and oil filter
  • Rotating tires
