Vehicle maintenance is essential when it comes to your safety on the road. Factory recommended services are something that most car owners have heard, but may not fully understand what they are. The easiest way to think about it is that they are services that your vehicle manufacturer recommends at certain mileage or time intervals. These recommendations are based on estimations of how long certain parts will last and how often certain maintenance items will be needed to keep your vehicle running at its best.
Factory recommendations are based on a number of things, including keeping you safe at all times, keeping warranties valid, making sure your vehicle stays reliable on the road, and helping you protect the overall integrity of your vehicle. These services are also planned out in order to help save you money on repairs over time. That is why it is in your best interest overall to stay current with these services.
If you reference your vehicle’s owner’s manual, you will find a list of factory recommended services for your specific vehicle, along with specific mileage or time intervals on when to have these services completed. Now you may wonder, are all of these services excessive? The truth is, owning a vehicle is more than just driving every day. Our vehicles are heavy machinery, and need to be taken care of if we expect them to last us throughout the years.
When you stay on top of your vehicle’s factory recommended services, you not only keep your vehicle performing in top condition, but you will also make sure that any or all warranties on your vehicle stay valid.
