Following Recommended Intervals for Your vehicle

March 10, 2024

If you're reading this article in Brighton, Michigan, then you probably care about your vehicle and how it runs. Even though you care, there is still that moment of dread when your professional service advisor at Perfect Tune Auto Repair tells you the manufacturer recommends some additional service. Your heart beats a little faster, your blood pressure rises. You worry about spending more money than you had planned. And you worry that if you say "no," you might be harming your vehicle or risking your family's safety.

At the risk of sounding like your dad, you really should have done your homework. Service recommendations are in your owner's manual. But it is not like you want to keep your vehicle auto maintenance schedule on your nightstand for bedtime reading.

Vehicles are complicated machines and it takes some effort for Brighton residents to keep them running well. That is why they have maintenance schedules that explain how to keep your vehicle performing efficiently and prevent breakdowns. In a typical owner's manual you'll find: oil change, brake fluid and pad change, coolant system service, transmission service, battery electrolyte levels, cables and terminals, tire pressure and wear, CV boots, cabin air filter, air conditioning, heater, fuel filter, air filter, belts and hoses, power steering fluid, differential service, fuel system cleaning and wheel alignment. And then there are mechanical service requirements like timing belt changes, valve adjustment, steering function, engine and exhaust leaks - yeah, it is a really long list!

Fortunately, this isn't a test: Brighton residents don't need to have it memorized. Your friendly advisor at Perfect Tune Auto Repair has access to your manufacturer's recommendations. Don't be surprised when your service advisor at Perfect Tune Auto Repair reminds you something is due. Your manufacturer has taken great care in putting together your maintenance schedule. Let Perfect Tune Auto Repair help you stay on top of maintenance. You can expect them to suggest recommended services and tell you what problems they find under the hood. We'll also explain how urgent these services are so you can work them into your budget.
