Regular Maintenance


When you purchase a new or pre-owned vehicle you know it needs regular maintenance, but could you be improperly maintaining your vehicle? It's more possible than you think.

Each vehicle sold in Manitoba must have an owners manual to pass safety. Inside the owners manual is a schedule you should follow when it comes to oil changes, tire rotations, transmission flushes, fuse replacement and more. However if you don't want to break this out every so often to double check you can follow an easy to remember schedule.

Oil changes and filters should be completed every 8,000 km not 5,000

Tire Rotations should be done every second oil change (16,000 km)

Air filters should be changed every 24,000 km

Brake inspections should be done ever 24,000 km as well.

It's recommended you stay up to date with your recalls as well. So if you receive a letter from your manufacturer make sure you open it to find out your recalls.

Cleaning the interior and exterior of your vehicle is also a must. Both will help reduce wear and tear on the body and interior fabrics.
