Factory Scheduled Maintenance
You may already know that automobiles need to be maintained regularly to keep them in good running condition and your car’s owners manual provides a schedule of the maintenance the factory recommends. What you may not realize is these recomendations aren’t necessarily the same for all cars and drivers because the maintenance recommendations are based on what factories like to call normal driving conditions.
When Does Your Car Need Factory Scheduled Maintenance?
So what are normal driving conditions? If you have a 100 mile round trip to work 5 days a week, your annual mileage is going to be quite a bit different than a retired person who only drives a few thousand miles a year.
About 12,000 miles a year is generally what some of the major manufacturers consider normal. If there’s a lot of construction going on along your normal route like there is in Utah most of the summer time, that’s considered extreme on your cars filters, oils, and fluids in your engine and transmission.
