When Do I Get Car Maintenance?
After you drive off the Mike Hale Acura lot and into Salt Lake City streets in a new Acura vehicle, it’s in your best interest to bring your vehicle in at regular service intervals. Be sure to keep tabs on important maintenance services, from regular oil changes to tire alignments, to even more extensive services, such as transmission and battery checks. Take a look at when to get these important services as well as a variety of others, and rely on our service department to keep your vehicle running smoothly on the streets of Murray for longer.
3,000 to 6,000 Miles
You’ll want to take care of the following routine maintenance procedures regularly to keep your vehicle in good condition:
- Change engine oil and filter
- Check coolant levels
- Inspect windshield wiper blades
- Get tires rotated
60,000 to 90,000 Miles
Once your car has been driving down I-215 for some time, you’ll want to do the following maintenance:
- Check the timing belt
- Replace coolant/antifreeze
- Change your battery (depending on factors like weather and wear/tear, they typically last around 3-5 years)
Learn to Routinely Inspect Your Vehicle
While there’s no time stamp on the following, be sure to check the following every month or so to ensure that your car is in good condition:
- Warning Lights – All should be in working order.
- Tire Pressure – Keep a cheap tire air pressure gauge in your glove compartment.
- Tire Tread – Put a penny in the groove of your tire (Lincoln’s head upside down). If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to change your tires.
- Fluid Levels – Even if you don’t change your windshield wiper fluid, antifreeze, or coolant, be sure to check the levels and inspect for any leaks.
You’ll also want to stay up to date on maintenance by following your vehicle’s manual. Luckily, you can easily access just about any car manual online, thanks to resources like Edmunds.
