Whether you drive a 2018 Jeep® Grand Cherokee or an older vehicle produced by another automaker, it’s vital that you stick to your car’s routine maintenance schedule. Why is it so important to keep up with your automobile’s routine maintenance? Because doing so can yield some significant benefits.

Adhering to your routine maintenance schedule is the most effective thing you can do to preserve your car’s resale value and extend its useful life. It’s also the best way you can keep your vehicle operating smoothly. Having your car serviced regularly is your best defense against small issues becoming big, expensive problems over time as well.

While you may have a new appreciation for regular car maintenance now, you might be wondering how often you should have your automobile serviced. Your routine maintenance schedule is in your owner’s manual. This schedule breaks down when your car will need certain services in the contexts of both mileage and time.

As you look through your owner’s manual, you’ll see that certain services need to be performed more often than others. While you may be tempted to postpone certain maintenance tasks, it’s the services your car needs most often that you should never put off.

Having your oil and oil filter changed when your owner’s manual advises you to is absolutely essential to your vehicle’s health. Rotating your tires, changing your air filter, and replacing your brake pads before they start to screech are also critical tasks that you need to have done on time.
