One of the common terms said at respectable automotive repair shops is “30/60/90 maintenance” or “scheduled factory maintenance.” For those in the car industry this is an easy term to understand, however for an average individual who isn’t a grease monkey it is not. The 30/60/90 maintenance of a car refers to the recommended auto maintenance schedule that is suggested by your car’s manufacturer. For most cars, the recommended maintenance occurs for every 30,000 miles that a car is drive. 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 mile services are important to ensure that your car continues to run and operate smoothly. For all, getting from point A to point B, whether it is school, work, or home is crucial to daily life. Neglecting a recommended maintenance could prove not only costly but could cause stress on your daily routine.
When choosing a trusted automotive repair center it is important to know what the factory scheduled maintenance entails. Typically, at the 30/60/90K checks an auto repair center checks the oil levels and changes them, replaces cabin air filters in your car and check and replace spark plugs as needed. Under the hood, fluids such as the transmission fluid, brake fluid, windshield fluid and coolant are topped off.
Lastly it is important to ensure that your tires are balanced and rotated and that the time belt on your car is checked and replaced if necessary. Typically a car’s timing belt needs to be replaced around 90,000-100,000 miles. Once these services have been administered your car is inspected from head to toe to ensure that additional repairs are not needed. If the auto repair shop notices that additional maintenance work is due they should notify the customer in advance to determine whether or not these services should be completed.
While many dealerships charge an arm and a leg to service cars an independent automotive repair center will perform the maintenance with a superior level of quality. When having your car serviced at the factory recommended times it is important to see if your car still has a warranty in effect. It is also important to check that your car does not have any recalls in place for the airbags, lights or other features. It is important to check with the dealership to make sure that your car has no recalls issued to ensure that your safety and well-being are secured.
