Regardless of how you rack up the miles and which Southlake destinations, you frequent, your vehicle, like all others, will eventually require maintenance and service. From routine maintenance like oil changes and tire rotations to more labor-intensive jobs like brake flushes and diagnostics, Alfa Romeo vehicles like the Stelvio and Giulia need regular work done to keep them running smoothly as they should. So too do all other vehicles on Hurst streets! What’s a car maintenance schedule? It’s a guideline on what maintenance to do when! Most manufacturers, including Alfa Romeo, release their own.

What’s the Alfa Romeo Maintenance Schedule?

There is a specific list of tasks and checks which must be done on your vehicle at every maintenance visit. The Alfa Romeo maintenance cost varies according to how many miles are on your car and which set of tasks we’re performing. But here’s an idea of what to get done when, as pulled from the above-linked page for your convenience:

1 Year or 10,000 Miles

  • Perform tire rotation
  • Check battery charge status
  • Check tire condition/wear/pressure
  • Check operation of exterior lights
  • Check and top up off fluids
  • Check engine control system operation (via diagnostic tool)
  • Check position and wear of front windshield wiper blades
  • Visually inspect condition and wear of front and rear disc brake pads and operation of pad wear indicators
  • Brake disc wear status check with diagnostic tool
  • Visually inspect surface and edges of brake discs
  • Visually inspect the condition and tensioning of the accessory drive belt

2 Years or 20,000 Miles

  • Everything in the 1st year checkup, plus…
  • Brake fluid flush
  • Cabin filter replacement

3 Years or 30,000 Miles

  • Everything in the 1st year checkup, plus…
  • Engine air filter replacement

4 Years or 40,000 Miles

  • Serpentine belt replacement

5 Years or 50,000 Miles

  • Repeat 1st-year checkup

6 Years or 60,000 Miles

  • Everything in 2nd and 3rd-year checkups, plus…
  • Spark plug replacement

Beyond 60,000 Miles

  • Repeat the above Alfa Romeo Maintenance plan cycle every 10,000 miles until 150,000, at which time the coolant will also be changed.

Monthly Car Maintenance

While the Alfa Romeo maintenance schedule is more specific than others perhaps might be, we can also recommend these monthly service checkups; while they might seem small, keeping on top of them regularly could result in major time (and money) savings in the long-run:

  • Make sure all the interior and exterior lights work
  • Check tire pressure and tread
  • Check to see if the check engine light is on
  • Clean the interior and exterior
  • Make sure windshield wiper fluid is filled

Why Follow a Car Maintenance Schedule?

  1. The first perk of following a car maintenance schedule to a T is the continued performance of your vehicle.
  2. Another advantage to following a vehicle’s recommended service schedule is that bringing your vehicle in to qualified technicians regularly increases the chance that they’ll spot any minor issues or repairs that are needed before they snowball.
  3. Knowing your car’s general maintenance schedule will enable you to assess whether you need to bring in your car for maintenance earlier if you use your vehicle more frequently, or conversely, keep on track of maintenance if you drive less than most people.
