What Is The Ideal Mitsubishi Outlander Maintenance Schedule?

Following a regular maintenance schedule for your Outlander will help your car perform better and save you money. Without regular car maintenance, various components within your car can start malfunctioning. Regular maintenance helps service technicians locate and repair potential problems early on, avoiding you from incurring costlier repairs in the future. You also need to consider your vehicle's warranty - it requires you to maintain your car so that you can gain more from your Mitsubishi Manufacturer Warranty.

Ideally, you will want to get your car serviced at least twice a year. The first service, six months in, should be a minor service where the service technician inspects the car carefully and replaces fluids where necessary.

The second and more major maintenance should come every twelve months. This is when the service technician conducts a thorough check and inspection, replaces or repairs damaged parts, changes necessary fluids, etc. However, depending on how often you use your car, scheduling your maintenance and servicing should be according to the mileage on your odometer.

The best Mitsubishi Outlander schedule for maintenance can be determined by using your odometer as follows:

  1. Every Six Months Or 7500 Mile
    It's necessary to get your engine oil and oil filter changed every six months. However, if you reach 7500 miles earlier, then schedule a service soon. Old engine oil can damage your engine and cause problems for your car.

  2. Every 15,000 Miles
    Get your engine oil and oil filter checked, and if necessary, changed again. In addition to this, a tire rotation should be performed, and your Outlander's brakes and hoses should be carefully inspected.

  3. Every Twelve Months 30,000 Miles
     At this point, a major service should be performed on your Outlander. In addition to the aforementioned checks, repairs, and replacements, make sure all the necessary fluids within your vehicle are replaced. This includes the brake fluid, the transmission fluid, as well as the engine coolant. Your service technician should also check your brake pads and spark plugs, and repair and replace them where necessary.

  4. Every 60,000 Miles
     Your service technician should conduct a thorough inspection of your car, where all the previously mentioned checks and replacements are performed. In addition, your car's differential fluid should also be replaced at this point.

  5. Every 90,000 Miles
    In addition to the previous steps, the engine coolant, the shock absorbers, and the drive belt should also be replaced.

  6. Every 120,000 Miles
    The vehicle will need complete major maintenance at this time, where every part and component is carefully inspected, all vehicle fluids replaced, necessary repairs performed, and the engine mount, the steering component, as well as the coolant hose, will also have to be replaced.

By follow the Mitsubishi Outlander's maintenance schedule, you will be able to gain the most out of your Mitsubishi Manufacturer Warranty.
