Your Car is a Big Investment...
and maintenance is key to keeping it running well and on the road for many miles to come. AAA recommends timely service checkups to ensure that your engine runs smoothly and efficiently, all systems perform optimally and that all parts, from spark plugs to windshield wipers, work effectively.

To know more about the services your car needs and when they should be completed, refer to your vehicle owner’s manual. It will include a routine maintenance checklist and the time points for completing recommended services. Note that maintenance schedules do differ depending on the make and model of the car, so it is important to follow the manual specific to your vehicle.

While timely maintenance is important and a way to avert unnecessary auto repairs down the road, as an informed vehicle owner, you should also be aware of over maintenance. See the Avoid over Maintenance article.
An auto repair facility recommending additional non-scheduled maintenance services without completing a professional diagnostic inspection and validating why the work should be done may be selling you something your car does not necessarily need.

AAA recommends taking your vehicle to a reliable auto repair shop with skilled technicians qualified to perform all the needed services your owner’s manual recommends. For trusted service, use the search feature to find a AAA Approved Auto Repair facility near you. Each of the more than 7,000 auto repair shops in the AAA network undergoes a comprehensive investigation and meets AAA’s stringent standards. Skilled mechanics will evaluate and service your vehicle with quality auto parts and products, and AAA members receive money-saving benefits.

Even when the unexpected happens on the road and you need a tow truck, do not go to just any garage. Direct the driver to tow your vehicle to a nearby AAA Approved Auto Repair shop.
