Owning a car is a huge privilege and comes with great responsibility. A vehicle is an investment, so it’s important to take care of it and do what you can to make is last as long as possible. There are a number of milestones your vehicle will hit that will require your attention. To help you remember these benchmarks, we’ve put together a list of car owner milestones to remember.
Car Mileage Milestones
- 30,000 – 40,000 miles
At this point in your vehicle’s life it’s time to schedule your car’s first major service visit. This is when automakers, like Toyota, decide its time for your vehicle to get more than just an oil change or tire rotation. This usually isn’t an overly expensive service appointment. It’s just checking to see the wear on your vehicle. At this appointment they might be able to determine when your brakes or tires are expected to wear out.
- 60,000-70,000 miles
When your car reaches this milestone, it’s time for a second major service visit. At this point a variety of things might need to be replaced, including timing belts, tires and brakes. It depends on the vehicle, but it is important to not skip this service appointment.
- 100,000 miles
Cars are now lasting longer than ever before, so there’s no need to panic when you hit that 100,000 mile mark. It’s just time for another thorough service appointment to make sure that everything is operating as it should. If you are considering selling your vehicle or trading it in, you will definitely want to consider doing so before it hits this milestone.
