As a conscientious driver, you want to make sure your vehicle is as safe as possible while going down the road. While some things may seem too small to be concerned about, when it comes to vehicle maintenance, everything is important. And of course, it is always wise to double-check the vehicle maintenance checklist listed in your owner’s manual.

So what does regular car maintenance include? Here is a general list of vehicle maintenance items:

  1. Windshield Wiper Blades –. When the blades are exposed to excessive heat or cold for months on end the rubber may stiffen and no longer wipe the water off the glass. Replace wipers at least once a year, or more if you live in a rainy climate
  2. Car Battery, Starter, and Alternator – A car battery should be replaced about every five years. If your lights seem dim and you run a lot of accessories, it may need to be replaced more often. Have the starter and alternator checked out too?
  3. Brake System (rotors, pads, and calipers) – Replace the brake pads at about every 50,000 miles. If you do a lot of stop-and-go driving, you may need to replace these braking components more often.
  4. Accessory Drive Belt/Serpentine Belt – This belt should typically be replaced about every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. This belt is crucial as it operates many parts, including the alternator, water pump, power steering pump, air pump, and the A/C compressor.
  5. Radiator, coolant, hoses, and belts – The radiator circulates coolant and water throughout the engine to prevent it from overheating. Have it inspected and the coolant/water mixture checked about every six months. Hoses may need to be replaced about every 75,000 miles.
  6. Air Filter – For most cars, the air filter should be replaced about every 15,000 to 30,000 miles, depending on the driving conditions. If you don't do a lot of driving, have it replaced at least every 3 years, as it becomes brittle.
  7. Transmission – Don’t wait until you have shifting problems and a major repair before having an inspection of your transmission. You may simply need a transmission flush.
  8. Tires – Keep the correct inflation pressure in your tires, and have tires rotated about six months. Depending upon the tread wear, tires should be replaced about every 45,000 miles.
  9. Oil and Filter Changes – This is a small but critical service that keeps your engine running smoothly and efficiently. Follow the recommendation stated in your owner’s manual for the right oil change interval.
