Driving your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport around the streets of Emmaus, Allentown, and Bethlehem is always a thrill, but it’s going to take some work to keep those thrills lasting. Your car will eventually break down like all cars do, but you can prolong that as much as possible if you make the right decision now.
Keeping your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport on a regular maintenance schedule is the best way to ensure it lasts for years to come. If it sounds overwhelming, don’t worry. At most, you’ll only have to get it serviced once every six months. Take a look at this comprehensive Mitsubishi Outlander Sport maintenance schedule from the service team at Kelly Mitsubishi, and learn what you need to do to keep your vehicle in top shape.
The most common service you’ll need in your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport to get is an oil and filter change. This needs to be done every six months or 7,500 miles. Oil is the lifeblood of your car, so you need to make sure it’s healthy. Bad oil can progressively damage your engine which can lead to very expensive repairs. Make sure you get this done every service.
At this point, you should take a look at your tires. A tire rotation is a good idea at this time, and you should go ahead and have your engine air filter and cabin air filter replaced. A visual inspection of other parts like brakes and hoses is necessary here, but you probably won’t have any issues at this point.
At this service, you’re going to repeat everything you’ve done for the Outlander Sport at previous services. In addition, you should get your brake fluid, engine coolant and transmission fluid replaced. Don’t be surprised if your technician also recommends you replace your spark plugs. Check your brake pads too. If they’ve been squeaking, it might be time to get new ones.
In addition to the other services, you’re going to want to replace your differential fluid here. Replacement spark plugs are a must in addition to a timing belt replacement and valve adjustment. If you haven’t already, get your brake pads replaced at this time.
At this point, you’ve had your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport for a while. Your shock absorbers have taken quite the beating in that time, so you need to get them replaced. Also be sure to replace the drive belt and engine coolant.
At this time, you need to make sure everything is in working order. After so many miles, you car is at greater risk of breaking down, so you need to stay on top of everything. In addition to getting your vehicle inspected, you’ll need to get your engine coolant hose, your engine mount and your steering and suspension component replaced.
Sticking to this maintenance schedule guarantees you a better chance of your Mitsubishi Outlander Sport having a long life. Now, all you need is a place to get all these services done.
