Which Services are Usually Considered to Be Vehicle Maintenance?

Vehicle maintenance can refer to multiple different services. For those who are not very familiar with the mechanical aspects of their vehicle, it can be difficult to keep up with which services your vehicle needs and when it needs them. The service department at Premier Ford of Lamesa can answer any questions you may have about taking care of your vehicle. Some of the services we offer when it comes to routine vehicle maintenance include:

  • Battery Service: Your vehicle's battery is likely to last about five years or less. We offer battery tests, repairs, and replacements so that you never find yourself with a vehicle that won't start due to a dead battery.
  • Brake Service: Brakes are built to be tough, but they still experience wear and tear that can cause less efficient braking. We will check the condition of all the parts that make up your brake system so that you can stay safe on the road.
  • Filters: The filters inside your vehicle, including the fuel filter, the cabin air filter, and the engine air filter need to be changed every 15K to 30K miles.
  • Fluid Level Checks: During other vehicle services, we will likely check the fluid levels of the radiator, power steering, windshield washer, transmission, and brakes.
  • Oil Changes: An oil change is of the utmost importance as it keeps your engine functioning. Many vehicles need an oil change around every 3,000 miles, but not every vehicle is the same, so it's a good idea to ask a service technician about yours.
  • Tire Service: Your tires condition contributes directly to your vehicle's performance and your safety out on the road. To keep your tires in good shape, we recommend having them rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles, depending on your vehicle. Tire inspections and pressure checks are also important parts of tire servicing.

The Importance of Routine Vehicle Maintenance

Routine vehicle maintenance is important for many reasons. By keeping up with your vehicle's maintenance, you are extending the life of your vehicle, reducing the likelihood of costly repairs, and increasing your safety behind the wheel.
