What Service Does Your Vehicle Need at Each Milestone?
Vehicle manufacturers have set up standard maintenance schedules for their new vehicles. The intervals are commonly 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Many of the services recommended at these intervals have parts that wear out easily, like filter replacements. Others, especially those recommended at the higher mileage markers, are to inspect and repair or replace longer-lasting components like timing belts or chains. Failure to have the recommended preventative maintenance done at the proper intervals can lead to issues and failures in the vehicle. It can even void your manufacturer's warranty.
At approximately 30,000 miles, most car manufacturers recommend replacing all air filters: engine, air, and cabin air. You should also have the tires inspected, balanced, and rotated. Thirty thousand miles is also the time to inspect your brake system for wear and repair or replace worn parts. This interval is also a good time to have your vehicle's critical systems inspected.
In addition to services completed at the 30,000-mile mark, at 60,000, you should have all the fluids in your vehicle flushed and refilled. The 60,000-mile mark is also where your brakes and timing belt may need replacing.
On top of all the 30,000 and 60,000-mile services, at 90,000 miles, your vehicle should have all systems closely inspected and repaired when necessary. Additionally, your spark plugs should be inspected and may need replacing. You should also balance and rotate your tires at this point in the life of your vehicle.
