Routine Vehicle Maintenance Schedule

Providing your car, truck, and SUV with routine maintenance will help it stay in great shape for years to come. Regular service also allows the vehicle to retain its value and prevents breakdowns. Where can you see your Buick or Chevrolet maintenance schedule? Your owner’s manual is the best place, as it provides a vehicle-specific schedule. Be sure you check your warranty to see which of these services are covered, and keep the following guidelines in mind to help meet your car’s recommended schedule.

3,000 to 7,000 Miles

Oil changes should be performed every 3,000 to 7,000 models depending on your vehicle. When you bring your Chevy work truck or GMC Terrain to Serra Chevrolet Buick GMC for an oil change, or any other new car service, we can also inspect the following recommended areas:

  • Steering Fluid Level
  • Washer Fluid Level
  • Coolant Level
  • Wiper Condition
  • Tire Condition

15,000 to 30,000 Miles

At every 20,000 miles, you’ll want to check your battery and coolant. In addition, keep the following auto repair and maintenance tasks in mind:

  • 15,000 Miles
    • Replace Air Filters
  • 25,000 Miles
    • Replace Fuel Filter
  • 30,000 Miles
    • Replace Air Filter
    • Replace Power Steering Fluid

Inspecting the coolant, radiator hoses, suspension, and HVAC system is also important. A typical 30,000 mile inspection and tune-up from Serra Chevrolet Buick GMC covers all these areas.

35,000 to 50,000 Miles

At 35,000 miles, you’ll often need to replace your battery. Feel free to swing by our service center and we’ll be happy to test it. Once you hit 40,000 miles, installing new spark plugs and wires is a safe bet, and the entire ignition system will need a thorough inspection. Because spark plugs and your battery are needed to start the car, you’ll want to replace them before you end up stranded in Madison, TN.

Every 60,000 Miles

Around 60,000 miles, plan on replacing the following:

  • Brake Pads
  • Power Steering Fluid
  • Radiator Hoses
  • Brake Fluid
  • Timing Belt
  • Coolant
