Factory Recommended Maintenance

Doing The Factory Recommended Maintenance - And What They Should Have

Factory recommended maintenance is the maintenance that the manufacturer tells you that you need to do to keep your vehicle in its best condition. The truth is, what the factory recommends should often be looked at as a starting point.

Increased maintenance intervals and “lifetime” fluids and components are known to be marketing tactics because people like buying cars that aren’t going to have a high cost of ownership.

Having the unique perspective of repairing broken cars every day, we know the true maintenance needs of individual vehicles.

When performing factory recommended maintenance, we always use fluids, filters, and parts that meet or exceed the manufacturer’s specifications. Everything that we do is designed to get the most life out of your vehicle and maintain its warranty.

Speaking of warranties, not only is it ok to have your vehicle maintained by a third party and not the dealership, but there is a federal law that prohibits the manufacturer from denying warranty claims because you didn’t have them do the maintenance.
