How Often Should I Schedule an Oil Change?

Typically, it is recommended to get an oil change every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. However, you can check in your owner's manual to see the recommended oil change interval for your Maserati, Alfa Romeo, or FIAT model.

The oil in your car keeps it from overheating by lubricating the engine, which reduces friction. Along with that, the oil filter keeps debris and sludge from building up.

When you visit our service center, we'll prioritize giving your luxury car an oil change as quickly as possible. Usually, an oil change takes about 15 to 30 minutes. During the oil change, our expert technicians will remove the old, dirty oil and refill it with fresh oil. At the same time, they'll replace the oil filter.

How Often Should I Get a Tire Rotation?

Another important type of maintenance is getting your tires rotated every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Regularly rotating all four tires to different positions ensures even wear, which helps them last and retain their tread for a longer period. This translates to improved traction and control, which keeps you stay safe across road conditions.

How Often Should I Check My Car Battery?

Getting your car battery checked is a quick service that can ensures you'll always have power when you want to start up your Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and FIAT model. In general, you should aim to have your battery tested twice a year. This service often only takes about 10 minutes.

What Are Common Signs I Need Automotive Service?

In addition to keeping up with your recommended maintenance schedule, there are a few signs to watch out for in between service intervals. If you notice any of them, it's a good idea to schedule a service appointment for your luxury car as soon as you can.

This can help avoid or mitigate any further damage to the components of your vehicle. A few signs include:

  • Strange noises, like whining or knocking.
  • Fluid leaking under the vehicle.
  • Excess exhaust smoke.

Along with these, if you notice the check-engine light appear and remain on, be sure to schedule an appointment. When you visit our luxury car service center, our service technicians will work hard to quickly diagnosis and fix whatever may be going on.
