The 30/60/90K mile scheduled maintenance service is often referred to as the most important and beneficial car maintenance strategy, largely because it is a basic schedule of service that will keep your car running in top shape for miles and years to come. As a general rule of thumb, most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. The 30/60/90K service schedule addresses applicable maintenance and inspection items in terms of the respective mileage interval. These items typically include fluid and filter changes, and visual inspections of parts and systems, depending on that mileage interval.

Most vehicles will have had major service by the 90,000 mile mark, however this can vary from car to car. Some issues that need to be addressed are for beyond the 90,000 mile interval, at the 120,000 mile interval. These are typically components like timing belts and other analogous mechanisms that need to be replaced periodically after a certain number of miles. Age and mileage are the main influences that determine a specific vehicle’s maintenance needs.

Generally, services required are also influenced by previous repairs, and become more common with increased mileage. Manufacturer maintenance schedules also vary in their mileage intervals, but the 30,000 mile intervals are acknowledged as the most common and important. These services help maintain vehicle performance and reliability. Kwik Kar of Allen will always verify your manufacturer’s recommended intervals.
