30K – 60K – 90K Mile Services

Your vehicle represents a big financial investment, so you want to do what it takes to make sure your car or truck gives you long-lasting performance and reliability. One of the best ways to do that is to follow your manufacturer’s recommended maintenance services. These maintenance services have scheduled intervals based on mileage, such as 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles or 90,000 miles. The services recommended for each of these scheduled intervals vary by mileage and manufacturer.

Rudy's European Motorcars has the specifications on your specific vehicle’s factory recommended services! Plus, you don’t have to rely on your local dealership to perform these services for you. Rudy's has the expertise and equipment to maintain your vehicle so you can keep your New Vehicle Warranty or Extended Warranty intact!

Unless otherwise instructed, we use factory authorized maintenance parts. Yes, they may cost more than aftermarket parts, but factory authorized parts provide you with the peace of mind that your car is using the parts as specified by your manufacturer.

The following lists are some of the maintenance services that may be included in a factory recommended maintenance service:

  • Drive belts

BUT – did you know that your vehicle also has many other vital fluids that it depends on for performance, safety and reliability? These vital fluids also need to be changed at a regular schedule.
