Whether you drive an HV Series or MV Series, or another model entirely, following a truck maintenance schedule is important. Still, plenty of drivers are confused about when they should visit a service center. In general, you should:

  • Check Your Mileage Guidelines
  • Look for Signs of Excess Wear

Read on to find out more and discover why routine truck maintenance is so vital.

Check Your Mileage Guidelines

Every truck is different, as they’re designed to carry different loads, drive in different conditions, and so on. As such, there’s no consistent guideline for routine servicing between all makes and models, but you can check your owner’s manual for recommended intervals. If you can’t locate your owner’s manual, check online or feel free to reach out to Rechtien International Trucks for assistance.

Look for Signs of Wear and Tear

Mileage guidelines aren’t set in stone. If you drive aggressively around Miami or Fort Lauderdale or tend to stick to Riveria Beach or Fort Pierce without taking your truck for a long cruise on the highway, you might need more regular maintenance. Before each trip, take time time to inspect your truck for wear and tear of the tires, brake system components, suspension components, and other key areas. While on the road, you should also pay attention to any odd sounds while the vehicle is running.

Why Should You Follow a Truck Maintenance Schedule?

Too many people avoid basic maintenance for truck needs to save a buck or two today, but they’re often setting themselves up for a bleak tomorrow. Here are just a few important reasons you should commit to truck service:

  • Prevent Breakdowns & System Failures: Simply making a few checks and arranging routine servicing can prevent the cost and inconvenience of a breakdown or smaller hassles like having to jump start your semi truck.
  • Ensure Dependable Safety: If your truck isn’t well-maintained, it probably isn’t as safe to drive as it should be. You might even be legally responsible in the event of an accident.
  • Extend Vehicle LifeSpan: Treat your truck well and it’s going to last longer between oil change intervals and other service intervals without needing complex repairs or a complete replacement. Outfit it with high-quality parts and accessories you can depend on.
