The 30,000 Mile Service is VERY Important!
The 30,000 mile service is a key step in maintaining the life of your vehicle. Most car owners are still under warranty at this time, so take advantage of taking your car to the experts at the dealership.
In addition to all that is performed at the 15,000 mile service, the 30,000 mile service is where you will start seeing some of the fluids replaced, such as the brake fluid, engine coolant and transmission fluid, as well as spark plugs, air filters and the fuel filter. A more comprehensive checklist of inspections may also be included, depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations for the vehicle.
When you give your vehicle a 30,000 mile service, not only will your car run better, but it will last longer. People often skip this important step, and think that they can “get away with” missing a regular mileage service. Like many other people on a tight budget, you may think your car doesn’t sound so bad, so there’s no problem. Sound familiar?
The problem is your car sometimes won’t reveal what’s wrong until it’s too late. Most problems happen quickly, and before you know it, that little sound means your car won’t start. Preventative maintenance and a mileage service at 30,000 miles could have kept that problem in check. With smart maintenance and servicing your vehicle at 30,000 miles, you can keep your repair costs down, rather than letting the problem cost you thousands of dollars down the line. Time and time again, it’s been proven that a simple car tune up and mileage service can stretch your dollar further than you could imagine.
If you can’t afford to take your vehicle in for it’s scheduled maintenance, you can always do it yourself. Our blog covers many of the tasks needed to maintain your vehicle. Just browse the blog.
