To hear some people talk, you might think that there is something magical about your 30K mile service. As repeatable, hard-working, experienced auto mechanics, we can assure you that it is nothing of the kind. In fact, if you’ve kept up on your yearly or periodic oil changes, filter changes and fluid checks, the biggest thing that your 30K mile service is likely to be a transmission fluid change.
That is not to say that a 30k service check-up isn’t a good thing. It isn’t a magical number – it is just the number of miles for which some parts in your vehicle are projected to last. This can include, transmission fluid, belts, spark plugs, plug wires, and similar items if they have not already been replaced or changed during similar services. In fact, you can combine your 30K checkup with your regular oil change and tune-up visit with your auto mechanic. In fact, there are distinct advantages to establishing a routine of going to the same auto mechanic for such routine maintenance so that they will have records of what has already been done to your vehicle – particularly replacement parts that are involved in recalls, and those routine items such as oil changes, tires, and even wipers.
