What service is essential for a 5-year-old car with 25,000 miles on it?

Q: I have a 2004 DeVille which I intend to keep as it is a great car and a beauty as well. I always have traded for new cars whenever the warranty expired so I never worried about service other than oil changes and lube jobs. My question is, what service is essential for a 5-year-old car with 25,000 miles on it?

A: We do encourage car owners to keep up with their scheduled maintenance. Not only can it extend the vehicle life, it may also increase fuel efficiency. And, a properly maintained vehicle may also have a better resale value. At 25,000 miles, we would recommend the following services:

  • Coolant flush
  • Transmission flush
  • Check belts and hoses and replace if needed
  • Air induction service to clean the throttle body and keep the fuel
  • burning clean and restore original power
  • Fuel injection

It’s important to remember that while these services would be appropriate for most makes and models, you should always refer to your owner’s manual to review its recommendations.
