Factory scheduled maintenance is an important part of ensuring the longevity of your car. It does more than maintain your vehicle’s value and ensuring that it is road worthy, car services also acts a tool for diagnosing current and future problems. When it comes to your vehicle’s “health” it is important to partner with professionals who go beyond your vehicle’s owner manual to provide maintenance that suits your pocket and your vehicle’s needs. High performance vehicles are a financial investment that should yield great returns in driving experience and quality. The easiest way to turn that investment sour is to neglect your vehicle’s service plan or skip out on preventative maintenance. Some drivers ignore their vehicle’s service appointments as they believe it unnecessary and a way to save money. Doing so will only cost you more money and time in the long run. Here are a few reasons why factory scheduled maintenance is important.
What Does Scheduled Maintenance Check?
At Foreign Affairs Motorsport our experienced technicians can provide a detailed assessment of your vehicle during scheduled maintenance. With every mileage milestone, your vehicle will need to undergo set maintenance steps. These will include:
Replacing Windshield Wiper Blades
These need to be in excellent condition to ensure road safety and prevent accidents during rainy weather.
Changing Engine Oil or Filter
These changes are determined by your vehicle’s model, make, and specifications.
Inspecting or Replacing Air Filter
These are essential part of maintaining your vehicle’s engine.
Diagnostic System Check
This can result in a system re-set if tests reveal that your vehicle is not performing optimally or if system updates are available.
What Are The Benefits Of Regular Servicing?
The simplest way to understand why regular services are important is to consider all the benefits that come with regular vehicle scheduled maintenance. These benefits include:
An experienced automotive technician will ensure that your vehicle complies with all the factory standards set for it. This will ensure that your vehicle is road worthy and that all the safety technology is in good working condition, because even the slightest problem could have devastating effects. A road worthy vehicle protects you, your passengers and other road users.
If your vehicle is new it will have to comply with set warranty standards to ensure that you can claim if something goes wrong or if you are no longer satisfied with your vehicle’s performance. One of the requirements for the vehicle warranty is regular maintenance that is documented by a recognized technician. If this is not done correctly or if you fail to document your maintenance, your future warranty claim could be denied. At Foreign Affairs Motorsport, our skilled technicians are experienced in warranty standards and will document your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance correctly.
Higher Resale Value
From the minute you drive out of the dealership with your new vehicle, the value decreases. As your vehicle’s mileage increases, the need for regular maintenance increases too. Different mileage intervals require a different set maintenance. Your technician should be able to provide you with a maintenance checklist that meets your vehicle’s specifications to ensure that value of your vehicle is being preserved effectively. Regular vehicle maintenance can result in a higher resale value for your vehicle, but only if maintenance is done correctly, on what is necessary and by an experienced technician.
