Service Schedule

Regular maintenance checks and simple service can greatly reduce the cost of car ownership.

  1. For maximum fuel efficiency and cleaner air keep your engine in tune.
  2. For safe driving keep brakes, steering and suspension systems in A–1 condition.
  3. Correct tire inflation is important. Check yours regularly; rotate and inspect periodically.
  4. Be able to see and be seen with properly working lights, windshield wipers and washers.

Most of the checks and services described here can be done at little or no cost. Best of all, they are quick and easy to do, plus they can save time, money and inconvenience. Although your owner's manual is an excellent reference when performing maintenance on your vehicle, it should periodically have a thorough inspection by a qualified technician.
