What You Need To Know About Mileage Milestone Services

Every car has a set of milestone services that are needed to keep it running. Depending on the vehicle and what mileage your odometer says will determine what services you need to have done. Refer to your owner’s manual for what maintenances your vehicle requires. Still, below we have a general guideline for all vehicles on what maintenances are recommended at the different mileage markers.

30K maintenances

30k miles already, we know it may have felt like yesterday that you bought the car, but these maintenances are important since they help you start your maintenance journey and help keep things running smoothly. These services are here aswell to ensure they were done correctly. Whether you bought the vehicle at 25K miles or 5K miles, these maintenance services need to be done around the 30k miles mark.

  • Alignment check (recommended every 15k miles)
  • Air filter replacements (cabin and air filters)
  • Spark plug replacement
  • Brake fluid flush
  • & A few others

These are the starter services to keep your vehicle running.

60K Maintenances

The next mileage marker is the 60k miles marker. These services get a little more in-depth. You have been driving your car for a little over two years now, and if you have kept up with your maintenances, these services are more preventative, but if you have been slacking, then it may be time to get these done. Either way, it is recommended to get these services done around the 60k mileage marker:

  • Platinum spark plug replacement
  • 2nd brake fluid flush
  • Differential service
  • Transmission flush
  • Power steering fluid flush
  • & A few others

90 thousand miles! At this point, most people have already decided to get a new car and abandon their old car. This part is for the few who maintain their car and know it can distance with some TLC.

120K Maintenances

Last but not least, the 120k mileage mark. By this point, there is a special bond between you and your car. It has been a good 10 years or so, and your car is still kicking due to good maintenance. These services are recommended and should be repeated after this point every 30k miles or so. Perform these services at 120k miles and thereafter:
