Factory recommended services are something that most car owners have heard, but may not fully understand what they are. The simple explanation is that they are services that your vehicle manufacturer recommends at certain intervals. These recommendations are based on estimations on how long certain components will last and how often certain services will be needed to maintain your vehicle.
These recommendations are based on a number of things, including keeping warranties valid, making sure your vehicle stays reliable on the road, keeping you safe at all times, and helping you protect the overall integrity of your vehicle. These recommended services are also planned out in order to help save you money on repairs over time. That is why it is in your best interest overall to stay current with these services.
If you take a look at your vehicle’s owner’s manual, you will find a list of factory recommended services for your specific vehicle, along with specific mileage or time intervals on when to have these services completed. Now you may wonder, are all of these services excessive? The truth is, owning a vehicle is more than just driving every day. Our vehicles are heavy machinery, and need to be taken care of if we expect them to last us throughout the years.
When you stay on top of your vehicle’s factory recommended services, you not only keep your vehicle performing in top condition, but you will also make sure that any or all warranties on your vehicle stay valid.
