When to Service in Hillsboro, OR


You have probably heard it before: If you take care of your car, your car will take care of you. Proper car care means operating your vehicle safely and within its limits, and adhering to a healthy maintenance schedule. The following highlights the intervals for which you should have your vehicle serviced at a dealership:

6 Months or 6,000 Miles

Around this time is a good opportunity to have your vehicle serviced for an oil change. While the vehicle is being serviced, ask your service specialist about doing a systems check that includes hoses, belts, air filter and fuel filter. Also, have all fluids checked at this point and ensure that they are filled to appropriate capacity and there are no leaks.

9 Months or 9,000 Miles

Nine months marks an opportunity to have the transmission system inspected. Have your dealership service specialist check the transmission fluid and talk to him or her about the last time you had a transmission system flush.

This is also a good time to replace your windshield wipers and have your specialist test the battery. Again, check all fluids and top off if necessary.

12 Months or 12,000 Miles

At the year-end mark, it's time to schedule some major inspections. Have your dealership service specialist thoroughly inspect the brake system. Don't neglect the cabin air filter! Request to have that looked at as well; it's more important than you might think. The radiator system should be examined at this point, as should the steering and suspension.

It also doesn't hurt to have them check your tire pressure and tread depth. Check out our Tire Tips

Overall, a properly-trained dealership service specialist is indispensable in keeping your vehicle in good working order. But there are also things you can do to help. Every other fill-up or once a month, check tire pressure and condition, check fluid levels yourself and always see a specialist if you have a concern.
