Common Auto Services

How You Know You Need Them

We hope our Morris County drivers know the most common of service needs – the oil change – as well as how often it should be done, but we’ll break that down too as we explain how to know when to service your vehicle. Routine maintenance is one of the best ways to ensure your vehicle is in its prime for years to come, but remember that these are just guidelines: your first and last resource should be your owner’s manual.

Oil Changes

Most drivers have been told to have their oil changed every 3 months or 3,000 miles, and that’s also what we recommend. Many vehicles can go for longer intervals, and you should always inspect your manual for the recommended oil change schedule for your vehicle, but it won’t hurt your car or crossover to have its oil changed more often than is necessary. Don’t forget that the Autosport Advantage Rewards Program includes your first year of maintenance.

Tire Rotations

Driving wears your tire treads, but each tire wears differently due to the way vehicles turn and accelerate. After a short time, that uneven wear builds up and you should even it out to get the most out of your tires and have a vehicle that behaves dependably. We recommend your tires be rotated every 5,000 miles or so. Waiting longer than that could lead to excessive, uneven wear that could damage your tires and affect vehicle safety.

Other Necessary Services

Oil changes and tire rotations are both the most common services we perform at Autosport Acura of Denville and the ones we receive the most questions about, but they’re just the basics for car care. Here’s a brief schedule of recommended maintenance you can reference as you put the miles on your vehicle:

  • Every 3,000 – 7,000 miles: In addition to your oil change, you should inspect tire treads and check fluids and filters. It’s also a good time to check that your lights are all in working order.
  • Every 15,000 – 30,000 miles: Your air filter should be replaced at least every 15,000 miles, your battery and coolant systems checked every 20,000 miles, and your air filter and power steering fluid replaced at 30,000 miles – it’s also a good time to perform a general check of HVAC systems, brakes, suspension, etc.
  • Every 35,000 – 50,000 miles: While you should replace the car battery as needed, most drivers find themselves replacing it every 35,000 – 50,000 miles or so. It’s a good idea to also inspect the spark plugs, their wires, and the ignition systems in this time.
  • Every 60,000 miles: Replace your brake pads and brake fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, and timing belt.

Of course, you can always check your Acura service schedule using the Acura maintenance minder portal, and we inspect for issues like brake pad and tire tread wear whenever you visit our service center.
