How often do you get maintenance service for your car?

How often do you get maintenance service for your car?

Keeping up with routine maintenance is one of the most effective ways to protect one of your biggest investments, and a growing number of today’s automakers are making it easier than ever with standard complimentary maintenance programs. With even mainstream companies like Toyota getting in on the action, almost 22 percent of Autobytel readers are returning to service departments for routine maintenance every three months (or fewer), and another 43 percent are coming in every 4 to 6 months.

Of course, on the other end of the spectrum, 19.6 percent of poll respondents have maintenance performed “Only when absolutely necessary.”
