When your vehicle receives auto maintenance, you may be wondering, “How long does auto maintenance last?” or “What is the best way to track my vehicle’s auto maintenance services.”
Both of these questions are commonly asked by car and truck owners.
How Long Does Auto Maintenance Last?
The length of auto maintenance can be determined by the type of service as well as the previous condition of your vehicle before the service is completed. Many automotive services can have lasting results as long as several years or as short as a few months. This timeline depends on the type of service, repair, and care taken of the vehicle.
How long the performed service will last can be determined by these factors:
- Year Made
- Vehicle Manufacturer
- Vehicle Model
- Accident History
Specific parts and pieces of a vehicle that may need to be repaired can include, but are not limited to:
- Spark Plugs
- Timing Belts
- Drive Belts
Consumable items such as radiator coolant, motor oil, brake fluid, brake pads, wiper blades, and power steering fluid may need to be replaced regularly. Learn more about auto maintenance.
Follow the 30, 60, 90 Schedule
The 30, 60, 90 schedule is a common guide to follow for vehicle maintenance. This schedules your vehicle to receive maintenance at 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000 miles. The parts and pieces that may need to be replaced can affect this schedule.
How to Track Auto Maintenance?
Track your maintenance through performing a schedule such as the 30, 60, 90. To track more in-depth, it is important to keep receipts from all services such as oil changes, tire rotations, etc. The frequency may change for each of these services.
Why is it Important to Track Auto Maintenance?
Say you are planning to sell a vehicle. Some of the most important information that a buyer is looking for in a used vehicle is the overall history. This history includes a full list of repairs, shop time, services big and small, and mechanical issues. A buyer is more likely to trust you if they have a transparent list of history to vouch for the vehicle’s value such as receipts. A buyer wants to gain confidence in the purchase they will be making.
By receiving necessary maintenance, you can prevent future issues and maintain the overall quality of the truck or car, making your vehicle more valuable to the buying market.
