You want a safe and dependable vehicle but you may be wondering how often should you get your car serviced? The answer is actually quite simple--follow the maintenance schedule in your vehicle owner’s manual. This will help ensure that you are driving as safe as possible, especially in icy and snowy conditions.

These reminder systems provide an alert on the dash when it is time for certain services, such as oil changes, fluid level checks, component inspections, and other car maintenance services. Even though you can typically trust this reminder system, it would be a good idea to double-check with your car repair technician for the right service intervals, especially if you don’t put many miles on your vehicle during a year’s time.
