Does all this regularly scheduled car maintenance cost more money than it is worth? Please consider the costs of repairing major, damaged systems in your car or the price of replacing a totaled vehicle without insurance. For example, the approximate national average cost for brake repair on two axles is $230 to $540 including labor.
Prices can reach $1,000 and often more for complete brake jobs required to repair/replace seriously damaged brake systems. The $1,000+ price also does not include damage to other vehicle car parts or systems caused by your brakes failing while you are driving and causing an accident.
What do the numbers 30-60-90 mean to you? The numbers 30-60-90 are also referred to as 30-60-90 maintenance, and/or scheduled factory maintenance. Specific car maintenance service is recommended every 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 miles to keep your vehicle safe and running longer.
These mileage amounts are flexible by 5,000 to 15,000 miles as well, depending on how badly your vehicle needs repair or how well it has been previously maintained.
Personal reasons for scheduling regular car maintenance checks also exist.
As stated the safety of you, your family and other drivers/passengers on the road is paramount to all else. Injuries sustained in car accidents are frequently serious and sometimes result in permanent or fatal consequences.
Many damage-related accidents are preventable by following a three, six, nine and twelve month (or 3,000 to 12,000 miles respectively) maintenance schedule. Following the longer-term 30-60-90 maintenance schedule further assures the longevity and safety of your vehicle.
Whether the issue is a simple clogged filter, low pressure in a tire or damage to your vehicle’s timing belt, getting the parts and systems of your automobile checked on a consistent basis helps save you time, money and possible injuries in the end.
