A well maintained automobile can reach 500k miles or more. To keep your car in tip top shape, it requires that you replace the cars fluids, and wearable parts at specific mileages. Your “service now” indicator is simply the notification system for this maintenance. Antifreeze, engine oil, brake fluid transmission fluid, brake linings, rotors, bearings and belts all must be replaced at specific intervals during the lifetime of your automobile. As a general rule it is a good idea to have your antifreeze and brake fluid changed once a year as good first step in keeping your vehicle well maintained. Additionally we recommend you change your oil change every 5000 miles.
