Maintenance is the routinely scheduled services, inspections and part replacements that your vehicle manufacturer recommends based on the age or mileage of your vehicle.

For any vehicle owner, the distinction between repair and maintenance is critical to ensuring a long and healthy life for your vehicle. Both are essential in the smooth operation of a vehicle, but the terms are often confused for one another, and can lead some owners to pay more than they should over time.

Preventive Maintenance

This preventive maintenance can include things such as regular oil changes, transmission flushes, as well as annual inspections and tire rotations. All of these services help to keep a car that is running smoothly stay that way, and help prevent the need for auto repair.
