All automotive manufacturers require regularly scheduled maintenance to keep your warranty valid, your vehicle safe, and to extend the life of your vehicle. Details about your vehicle's regularly scheduled maintenance are available in your vehicle's owner's manual.
Let Auto Repair Shop track your maintenance records.
Auto Repair Shop has instant access to the data base of scheduled maintenance for all automotive manufacturers including Ford, GM Chrysler, Honda, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Hyundai, and more. If your glove box ate your owner's manual, we'll print a copy of your vehicle's recommended maintenance schedule for you. Auto Repair Shop will also keep a record of all inspections and work performed on your vehicle.
What are my recommended maintenance mileage intervals?
Your vehicle's recommended maintenance schedule breaks down the necessary maintenance for you by mileage intervals. While these schedules vary slightly from one manufacturer to the other, they're all designed to keep your vehicle in a safe working condition. And while today’s automobiles often last for 150,000 miles or more, it is a common misconception that they need “less” maintenance. By design, it is the periodic maintenance, designed wear and replacement of predetermined components that allow the vehicle to operate as long as it does.
