Keeping your car in great shape takes more than simply avoiding an accident. You’ll need to be sure that you’re performing the regular maintenance and repairs that your vehicle needs before things get serious. There are a specific set of systems and parts that tend to wear out around the 50,000 mile mark, and that’s where we are here to help. View this checklist of systems that you should have inspected at 50,000 miles in your car.
Maintenance Checklist at 50,000 miles
At 50,000 miles, you’ll want to take a look at your tires. Most OEM tires from a new car are made with soft rubber that wears out in about 50,000 miles, so it might be time to replace all four tires. It’s also important to replace the fuel filter. The fuel injection system is complex, but the filter is a key part that insures dirt and other particulates are kept out of your engine. Having this replaced ensures that it continues to do its job.
Among the parts to replace when they wear out, there are a number of parts and systems you’ll want to take a look at. It might not be necessary to replace these parts, but catching issues early will help to prevent expensive repairs or dangerous issues down the road.
Here is a list of things that you’ll want to inspect yourself or have inspected by skilled professionals:
- Fuel Cell Cap Inspection
- Inspect Exhaust System
- Inspect Suspension Components
