What are Auto Maintenance Services?

Auto maintenance services are the recommended examinations and tests of your car’s systems.  Looking at items like the engine, brakes, and tires are all part of auto maintenance services.  In addition, parts and fluids need to be inspected and replaced if necessary.  These services are necessary to ensure your car is safe, reliable, drivable and comfortable.

Preventative auto maintenance services are crucial to protecting your car from major engine or system damage.  More importantly, regular auto maintenance keeps you safe on the road.

Each make and model of automobile will have a different service schedule. This schedule is recommended by the car’s manufacturer, and can vary from car to car. In addition, the service schedule should also be based upon your particular driving habits. Other variables, such as driving conditions and driver behavior, should be always considered.

Car manufacturers recommend an auto maintenance service schedule based on many things that can impact a vehicle. The number of trips and the distance travelAuto Maintenance Serviceed per trip per day, extreme hot or cold climate, heavy stop-and-go vs. long-distance cruising and towing a trailer or other heavy loads are all examples of things that affect your auto’s maintenance needs.

At Eurasian Auto Repair, we understand that skipping regularly scheduled auto maintenance service can lead to future problems with your car’s safety and performance.  Our experienced service advisers can recommend a schedule specific to your car’s service recommendations from the manufacturer and your personal driving habits.  These recommended services can often save you thousands of dollars in costly and preventable repairs, but much more importantly, will keep you safe while on the road.

A comment about oil changes:

Many car manufacturers have added “Oil Life Indicators” on the instrument panel that tell you when the oil needs to be changed. Additionally, your car’s computer keeps track of starts and stops, as well as other factors, to calculate the oil’s useful time-span. Depending on how you drive, there can be a wide variation in the number of miles between oil changes. The guidelines for auto maintenance service come from companies that have a vested interest in keeping your car trouble-free.  In other words, if you’re happy with the car or truck you own, you’re more likely to buy another one. So, to a manufacturer, a well-maintained car means they will pay out less in warranty claims.

About warranties:

Some dealers will tell you that you have to get the recommended auto service items done at their shop to keep your warranty in force. Furthermore, they may tell you that you have to follow their supplemental service list. Not true! Just keep records and receipts, should any questions arise over a warranty claim. However, what is true is that doing no maintenance — oil changes and filters at recommended intervals — can void a warranty.

  • We just had our third experience with Eurasian, and I am extremely satisfied with their diagnostic services and thorough explanations of what the vehicle's big and little problems are. Rob is excellent at explaining the condition of the vehicle and what it will take to bring it up to excellent function again. Pricing is also clearly broken down to the dollar. We drive our cars to death, with a toyota at 225k miles(really!), and VW at 75k and a Ford truck at over 100k miles. I trust Eurasian to work on our foreign and domestic vehicles. They warranty all of their work, and got the jobs completed in a very timely manner. Excellence across the board!
