Scheduled Maintenance

Regular maintenance is critical to ensure the safety,
reliability, drivability, comfort and longevity of your car.

Scheuled Maintenance

Owner’s Manual

Owner’s manuals usually cover three main areas:

  • a description of the location and operation of all controls,
  • a schedule and descriptions of maintenance required, both by the owner and by a mechanic,
  • specifications like oil and fuel capacity and part numbers of lightbulbs used.

Every vehicle has different maintenance needs, but most manufacturers recommend service intervals of 30, 60 and 90 thousand miles. Adhering to your manufacturer maintenance schedule is one of the most important things you can do to keep your vehicle running properly and avoid costly break downs.

Let us at HomeTown Auto Service help you with any concerns you may have about your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance.
