AA Auto Care & Tire will help you establish a maintenance schedule and keep track of your basic car care.


Regular maintenance of your car is like health insurance for your transportation.  Your vehicles need regular maintenance to retain their safety, dependability, performance, fuel economy, and emission control capabilities.  Regular maintenance also makes sound financial sense.  Lower-cost maintenance and service can help prevent higher-cost repairs.  Regular maintenance will also help to prolong the life of your tires, brakes, and other vehicle components and systems.


Preventative Maintenance is the commonly used terminology, because it helps to prevent costly and dangerous breakdowns and repairs.  The maintenance recommendations for new cars are the basis of the manufacturer's warranty.  The automaker warrants your vehicle against defects over the specified time or mileage if the vehicle receives the scheduled maintenance.  


Here are some general guildelnes developed by industry sources:
