Acura Oil Change

Commuting across the Leander region in a new Cadillac or pre-owned vehicle? Regardless of which type of car you drive, it’s important to keep track of your car maintenance schedule. Many Georgetown drivers have never heard of this before, so it’s normal to ask yourself “what is my car maintenance schedule?” 


Different vehicle body styles have different variations in how often you’ll need maintenance repairs, depending on whether you drive a truck, van, SUV, or sedan. Nonetheless, there’s a relatively standard Cadillac maintenance schedule you can utilize to maintain proper vehicle care. Find out more about your car maintenance schedule with the help of our expert Covert Cadillac Service team.

What’s the Importance of a Car Maintenance Schedule?

Why is it important to follow a car maintenance schedule and why is it so important? Simple: keeping track of your car maintenance schedule saves you money and keeps you safe on Georgetown roads. Bringing in your vehicle for routine schedule service and checks allows technicians to deal with any repairs or issues before they worsen, which will reduce the cost of vehicle maintenance and increase your car’s lifespan. 

Also, knowing your general maintenance schedule allows you as a vehicle owner to evaluate whether you need to bring in your car for maintenance earlier, depending on how frequently you’re driving around Cedar Park.
