When you purchase a used model from us at Major World, we guarantee you’ll receive a high-quality vehicle. However, once you’ve bought a car, whether it’s new or used, you need to keep up-to-date with a car maintenance schedule in order to ensure it’s running at its full capacity. But you may be asking, “What is my maintenance schedule?” Well, let the experts at Major World walk you through the regular service schedule that you should keep your vehicle on — some maintenance you can expect to be able to do on your own, but some you may need to bring your vehicle in to our service department in Long Island City for further assistance.

Maintenance for Every Month

First, here are some simpler maintenance tasks that should be checked up on each and every month:

  • Clean the interior and exterior
  • Check tire pressure and tread
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled
  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work
  • Check to see if the check engine light is on

Maintenance for Every Three Months or 3,000 Miles

The following are some maintenance checks that should be performed about every three months or 3,000 miles:

  • Wiper fluid, power steering, and automatic transmission levels
  • Tire pressure, tread, and wear and tear
  • All lights inside and out
  • Fuel filter
  • Belts, exhaust, and hoses
  • Engine oil and air filter

Maintenance for Every Six Months or 6,000 Miles

On top of the maintenance checks you should perform every three months, for every six months or 6,000 miles you put on your car, you will also want to focus on these aspects:

  • Chassis lubrication
  • Car battery and cables
  • Polish your vehicle
  • Replace windshield wipers

Maintenance for Every 12 Months or 12,000 Miles

Last but certainly not least, additional yearly service should be performed on your car including check-ups focused on:

  • Coolant levels
  • Steering and suspension
  • Transmission fluid levels
  • Brakes and brake system

Why is a Maintenance Schedule Important?

Whether you’re driving the paved streets of Queens or off-roading rough trails in Bronx, your vehicle will need to have maintenance work done every one, three, six, and 12 months. If you aren’t keeping up with this maintenance schedule, then your vehicle may experience further, more expensive problems in the future. The best way to save money on your car, SUV, or truck, is to keep up-to-date with the above maintenance schedules. Believe us, you’ll save money in the long run.
