Recommended Maintenance Schedule for Your Automobile

Follow These Guide-line to Keep Your Car Healthy!

What type of maintenance routine should I follow?

Depending on the frequency and type of usage of your vehicle, the maintenance routines will vary. We have provided below a schedule geared towards average usage in non-harsh environments (i.e. paved city roads and highways with no extreme temperatures).

Vehicle maintenance is an important yet frequently neglected item. Proper maintenance will aid in retaining the level of performance that has been engineered into your Mitsubishi vehicle and it will guard against major repair expenses resulting from neglect. Good maintenance is necessary to protect your investment and ensure proper performance.

Regular Maintenance Schedule

The following general recommended regular maintenance schedule is geared towards Mitsubishi vehicles. There may be extra steps or some that do not apply depending on the type of vehicle you are driving. As always, it is recommended to consult with one of our friendly service advisors by calling (888) 214-7037 before attempting any type of maintenance that you are not 100% positive that you can perform. You can also use this as a guide to determine when you need it and what type of service your car needs.
