1992 and Older: Depending on the model of your vehicle, a certain number of miles indicates the time you need to have your car serviced. If you have an older model you need to get your car checked more frequently to make sure it is in its best shape. The first time you take it in should be around 7,500 miles and continue to go after every 7,500 miles. This will help you keep up to date on what is going on with your car and you won’t have to worry as much on the when. Keep an eye on your mileage and when you reach 15,000 miles take you car in for its second visit. 1992-1998: After ‘92 the time between visits increases. Instead of 7,500 miles you need to take you car in for a checkup every 10,000 miles. If your car is making any crazy sounds or your brakes are sticking be sure to take your car in for a check up right away. Not every car is the same so paying attention to your car is the most important way to figure out when it needs maintenance. 1999- Present: Cars made since 1999 require a checkup after 15,000 miles
