The Mitsubishi Outlander is one of the best crossovers on the market, and if you drive one, you already know all the exciting features it can offer. Whether you use it as a family car or a personal car with loads of cargo space, the Outlander has so much to offer, which is why keeping it in good condition is so important.
The best way to take care of your Outlander is with a proper maintenance schedule. Having your car on a maintenance schedule ensures that you get the most out of it for the longest time possible. Even if the problem is small, you still need to get regular service because small problems can add up into bigger and more expensive problems. Learn about the Mitsubishi Outlander maintenance schedule from the service team at Kelly Mitsubishi. We proudly serve drivers in the Emmaus, Allentown, and Bethlehem areas.
No one really wants to fix something more than once, but your Mitsubishi Outlander is going to need frequent maintenance like all cars. Rest assured, it’s not that frequent. Every six months or 7,500 miles, you’ll need to get your oil and oil filter changed. Bad oil can only damage your engine, so avoid those expensive repairs with regular oil changes. Make sure you repeat all the following services at regular intervals.
Get your oil changed again just like any other service, but also make sure to get your tires rotated. Some would even suggest you get your tires rotated every time you get your oil changed. Start having the technician look at your brakes and hoses in your Outlander, but nothing should need to be repaired at this time.
During this service, you need to replace your fluids in the Outlander. Your brake fluid, engine coolant and transmission fluid all need to be flushed and replaced. You might also have to replace your spark plugs and brake pads if they’re starting to get a little too worn.
There’s more fluid to replace this time in the Mitsubishi Outlander. Your differential fluid needs to be flushed and replaced along with your brake pads if you haven’t already. You should also replace your spark plugs and timing belt.
Repeat previous services, but also get your shock absorbers replaced. After nearly 100,000 miles of work, they’re bound to be pretty worn by now. Get them replaced or be prepared for a bumpy ride, and get your drive belt and engine coolant replaced, too.
Replace everything that hasn’t been replaced recently, and make sure you get your engine mount, coolant hose and steering component replaced at this service.
