Routine auto service is a major part of keeping your car in top notch condition. It’s easy to rinse it off and throw on a coat of wax, or even vacuum the interior and keep your trunk organized. But that’s just surface – what goes on under the hood is even more important to your ride’s lifespan! That’s why we think it’s a great idea to set a new resolution for 2017… keeping your car up to date on routine auto service at Toyota of N Charlotte!
What routine auto service schedule should you keep in 2017?
Every 5,000 miles, you’ll want to get a tire rotation and have our techs check the condition and inflation of them. You’ll also get a free multi-point inspection if you visit our service center, where our skilled mechanics will examine your entire car from bumper-to-bumper. If you’re using conventional oil, you’ll also need an oil change about now!
Every 10,000 miles, you’ll want to bring your ride in for another multi-point inspection, tire rotation, and oil change whether you’re using synthetic or conventional motor oil. Just remember – the longer you stick to a routine auto service schedule, the better your drive time will be!
Every 15,000 miles, you should come into Toyota of N Charlotte for a repeat of the above services, but this time our techs will also check your air filter. By now it should be pretty dirty from protection the engine from debris, so you’ll be due for a replacement to keep things running smoothly.

Every 20,000 miles, you’ll want to repeat the tire rotation and oil change routine for maximum performance. However, this is also a great point in time to have our Charlotte Toyota service tech check your brakes to ensure your brake pads are the right thickness, and that everything else in your braking system is up to par.
Every 25,000 miles, you should go ahead and repeat – again – the conventional oil change and tire rotation. But have our techs check out all belts and hoses under the hood this time, as they tend to wear out over time, especially if you’re driving in extreme weather conditions.
