Preventative Maintenance

Take control of your vehicle’s longevity and performance by prioritizing preventative maintenance. From brakes and oil changes to alignment and tune-ups, Modern Auto Service will ensure your vehicle remains in optimal condition for the long haul.

In the ’80s, odometers would max at 99,999 miles and start over at zero. In other words, you were the exception if you could get to 100,000 miles. 

With modern vehicles, 100,000 miles is the expectation. However, you need preventative and factory-recommended maintenance to reach 100,000 miles or more. 

At Modern Auto Service in Fruitland, ID, our technicians offer every maintenance service your vehicle will need. So, whether you need your brakes serviced, an oil change, a tire rotated, a tune-up, or any other car maintenance service, Modern Auto Service is here to help. 

Preventative Maintenance vs. Factory-Recommended Maintenance

For the most part, “preventative maintenance” and “factory-recommended maintenance” are used interchangeably. Both are proactive services designed to maintain your vehicle’s health and performance. 

Preventative maintenance refers to routine maintenance tasks designed to prevent potential problems before they occur, like regular inspections, fluid changes, filter replacements, and component lubrication.

On the other hand, factory-recommended maintenance refers to maintenance tasks outlined explicitly by the vehicle manufacturer in the owner’s manual or maintenance schedule. The tasks are usually done in specific mileage or time intervals, for example: 

The usual services under factory-recommended maintenance may vary depending on the vehicle make and model, but they typically include the following:

While preventative maintenance is a broader approach that goes beyond the manufacturer’s recommendations, factory-recommended maintenance is focused on following the specific guidelines set by the manufacturer. Nevertheless, both are important for a vehicle’s overall care and reliability.
