Factory Scheduled Maintenance Clarksville, TN
Be sure to check your owner’s manual for your manufacturer’s maintenance schedule. You might be surprised to find that most modern vehicles can no go longer between necessary service intervals. That is not to say that you should not bring your vehicle in as soon as possible if a check engine light comes on or if you notice something “off” about your car, truck or SUV. Your manufacturer has put your vehicle through rigorous testing and they do have a good idea of when parts will most likely fail and that is why they recommend having them inspected at various mileage markers.
That being said, most of your manufacturer’s suggestions will be based on ideal driving conditions. You will most likely agree that idea driving conditions can be difficult to find. Mostly because even long stop and go commutes can be considered severe driving conditions. That is why it is best to have your vehicle inspected at regular service intervals, any time a check engine or other indicator light comes on and whenever you feel something might not be right with your vehicle.
