Timeline checklist for oil, tires, and alignment

Slide 1 / 1

Every vehicle manufacturer has a list of scheduled maintenance for oil, tires and alignment. Your specific car, truck or van may have slightly different requirements, but there are general recommendations that apply to most vehicles.

With any maintenance, always take your car in earlier instead of later — you'll prevent needless wear and tear on the car and keep it in great condition much longer. Check with your mechanic for maintenance care recommendations for vehicles with more than 100,000 miles.
