How Often Should I Service My FIAT?

Recommended Oil Change Every component underneath the hood of your vehicle needs attention to maintain its good working operation. The frequency of this necessary attention varies from one model to the next. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend that you schedule service every 15,000, 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles, although it is important to refer to your owner's manual to learn the exact time schedule for your vehicle. Regular Service will prevent many common causes of breakdown, expensive repairs, and ensure the highest resale value should you decide to sell the vehicle later down the line.

15,000-Mile Service

Your vehicle is still fresh and new at this point, so there are only a few services provided at this tune-up. An oil change is one of those services. It is essential to change the oil in the vehicle every 3,000 to 7,000 miles to keep the engine in tip-top condition, however. The technician who performs the tune-up will inspect the parts underneath the hood, looking for any signs of trouble that may need a repair. He’ll rotate the tires, inspect and change the engine coolant and fluids, and check the battery.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 30,000-Mile Service

    Tire Rotation IntervalsThe technician providing the 30,000-mile tune-up will provide the same services as the first tune-up. However, he’ll also change the fuel filter and inspect the transmission fluid. If recommended, the transmission fluid oil and filter are replaced. This visit should include replacement power steering fluid and a brake inspection.

  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 60,000-Mile Service

    The brakes are the primary concern at this service since they tend to need to be replaced at about this age. The technician will inspect the brakes, brake pads, and the rotors and make any repairs or replacements necessary to keep your vehicle stopping on a dime. This service should include the same inspections as the 30,000-mile services, as well as replacement of any gaskets, hoses, and valves necessary underneath the hood. These components are made of rubber that begins to crack and break at this point of its life cycle.

  • Many of the Same Services from 30,000 Mile Interval
  • Replace Battery as Needed
  • Inspect Brake Rotors - Replace as Needed
  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed
  • 90,000-Mile Service

    At the 90,000-mile service, expect the technician to provide similar services to the 60,000-mile service. It may be time to change the transmission oil fluid and filter again as well. This service should include a timing belt and serpentine belt replacement, and inspection of the ignition system.

  • Many of the Same Services from 60,000 Mile Interval
  • Top to Bottom Inspection
  • Check Spark Plugs - Replace as Needed
  • Inspect Vehicle Safety Technology Features
