30/60/90,000 Mile Service Appointments
When you buy a new car, it’s important to keep in mind that regular maintenance is a critical component to car ownership. The most common service interval in the first years of ownership includes 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000 miles.
When you reach these milestones, it is critical that you have your vehicle serviced to help maximize your vehicle’s longevity, efficiency, and performance. More than likely, when you purchased your new car, the dealership communicated the importance of these service intervals. It’s important to heed your dealership’s reminders, and make an appointment when you near each interval.
Generally the 30/60/90,000 mile service appointments will include fluid changes, filter changes, and a complete visual maintenance inspection, along with other checks, depending on the specific mileage interval. Some additional services, depending on the service interval and your car’s condition include: spark plug replacements; oil change; fuel and air filter replacements; lube, oil and filter checks; tire pressure check, suspension and shock check, belt and hose inspection; brake fluid flush; tire rotation; coolant system flush; emissions check; brake inspection; and more.
Maintaining your car’s 30,000 mile, 60,000 mile, and 90,000 appointments are necessary for protecting your car’s warranty, maximizing future resale value, and extending the life of your car’s components and systems. Subsequent service intervals usually continue to occur every 30,000 miles, reverting to a similar schedule as the 30/60/90 schedule.
You car’s specific recommended maintenance schedule will depend on the make, model, and year. Check with your owner’s manual for more information, or give us a call at Carriage Nissan today!
