Recommended Services at 45,000-Miles

For cars that are at a certain mileage, there are services that are recommended to keep your car running smoothly. These services are normally recommended at intervals of 45,000 miles then again around 60,000 and again at 90,000. For the 45k mile service the common smaller services that are included with the service are, tire rotation, oil and filter change, engine and cabin air filter change, transmission fluid service, brake fluid change, transfer case fluid change, and inspection of the evaporate control system. These services help make sure your car is working properly and ready to go another 45,000 miles.

Why Should I Have a 45K Service?

These services are not mandatory but highly recommended! Most manufacturers put a time frame on when you should certain parts changed or inspected, and the 45,000-mile mark is a good one. This is a regular routine maintenance service that is going to help make sure your car keeps going and that you are able to get another 45,000 miles out of it. A great service tech can help your car to run smoother and to keep going.

Delaying this type of service is going to do a few things. For starters, as your fluids age and are used, they change in viscosity, they change in texture, and most importantly, they change in volume. This means that you may have fluids that are very low and therefore can cause damage to your systems. Also, not changing filters can choke out your engine, it can cause issues with the air quality in your car and can also cause a huge range of other issues. Santa Cruz Subaru has a body shop on-site, they have a comfortable customer waiting area, and we also have a shuttle service. Our dedicated team is ready and waiting to get your car back on the road faster.
