Factory Scheduled Maintenance

You probably know that you should change the oil in your car every 5,000 kilometers , but do you know how often you should check the power steering fluid or the chassis lubrication? If you are unsure, review your car’s owner manual to find the factory maintenance schedule recommended for your specific vehicle by the manufacturer. So, what is factory scheduled maintenance and why is it important for your vehicle?

The best way to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its factory scheduled maintenance schedule. One major key to successfully making sure you are doing all you need to do is to read your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, its owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different, and common beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 5,000 kilometers ,” may not apply to your car.

The maintenance schedule within your owner’s manual is provided by the people who understand your vehicle the best—the company that built it. The manufacturer provides suggestions for how often you need to change your oil, filters, driving belts, timing belts and more.

While some preventative maintenance—such as topping off fluids—can be performed by a vehicle’s owner, other, more complicated procedures should be handled by experts like the technicians at Dundas Automotive. We’ll keep your vehicle in top shape by performing the following maintenance:

  • Inspecting and replacing timing belts (preventing damage to other accessories).
  • Inspecting and replacing serpentine belts (preventing damage to other accessories).
  • Checking and changing oil and oil filter.
  • Checking, repairing and replacing battery connection components.
  • Checking and replacing batteries.
  • Checking and replacing cabin air filters. This can keep your car comfortable during the hot summer months.
  • Checking and replacing your engine air filter. You may need to replace your engine air filter more frequently if you drive in stop-and-go traffic or have a long commute.
  • Checking and replacing spark plugs.
  • Tire inspection and rotation. This helps ensure even wear on your tires, which can help prevent blowouts and leaking. It also helps make your ride smoother.
  • Tire balancing – balancing your tires prevents wear, which can significantly improve their life and save you money.
  • Wheel alignment.

Do I Have to Repair My Car at the Dealership to Maintain the Factory Warranty?

Do I Have to Repair My Car at the Dealership to Maintain the Factory Warranty?

You DO NOT have to service your new vehicle at a dealership.

Suggesting that you need to service your vehicle at the dealership where you purchased isn’t just wrong; it’s actually illegal! This is referred to as “tied selling”, which is in direct violation of Canada’s Competition Act. Other countries around the world, such as England or the United States have similar legislation.

Industry groups such as the Automotive Industries Association of Canada have released statements such as this one, in order to try and provide some clarification for consumers on the issue.
