Recent advances in automotive technology have resulted in vehicles that are better built, more service-free
than ever before—but extremely complicated. One look under the hood of any late model
vehicle and you know what we mean.
To assure peak performance and to assure that you get the years of trouble-free driving you expect, the manufacturer
has developed a recommended maintenance schedule for your vehicle.
This maintenance service must be completed in order to keep your warranty valid — and the trained technicians at
Roselle Service Center can perform most of the services recommended by each manufacturer. Look in
your Glove Book for your owner's manual.
There are two types of maintenance services: minor service and major service. Minor services are generally performed
at 7,500, 15,000, 45,000 and 75,000 miles, while major services are performed at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 miles.
While it varies by make and model, minor services generally include changing the oil and oil filter, lubricating the
chassis if it has not been factory sealed, and an inspection of all fluids, filters, hoses, brakes and emissions.
Major services include these plus the replacement of various filters, fluids, and spark plugs. Other specified major
services relate to the fuel delivery, emissions, and ignition systems. Some manufacturers even recommend tire
rotation as part of a major service.
Again, your warranty is safe and secure at Roselle Service Center. Our technicians are fully qualified to
perform most of the services recommended by each manufacturer. So, if a car dealer says you must have their
expensive shop do the work—or you’ll lose your warranty—it’s just not the case in most instances.
In fact, the U.S. Government passed the Magnusson-Moss Act
to protect you from this money-costing ploy by many auto dealerships*. *The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act is a component of the Federal Trade
Commission Improvement Act, and was passed in an effort to “improve the adequacy of information available to consumers, to prevent deception, and improve
competition...” It mandates disclosures designed to enhance consumer protection through awareness of implied and express warranties attached to products and services.
