When it comes to your Mitsubishi, you want to do everything you can to extend its life. An important part of owning or leasing a car is taking care of it. Here are some important car maintenance milestones you won’t want to miss.
Fuel filter – Fuel filter replacement recommendations vary among vehicles. To be safe, have an automotive professional review the quality of your car’s fuel filter at 30,000 miles.
Air filter – Your car’s air filter is responsible for helping your engine breathe, so you want to make sure it doesn’t get too dirty. If you ever drive out of Louisiana and live in a dusty environment, you might want to move this change up to 15,000 miles.
Battery – While you should regularly check the charge of your battery, the 60,000-mile (or, four-to-five year-) mark is a good time to swap out your battery for a new one.
Brakes – Your brakes are made of up a few different parts, and all of these should be checked and/or replaced before the 60,000-mile mark. Most brake pads need to be replaced at around 50,000 miles, though they can last longer. Brake rotors can become warped, so check in on them around 60,000 miles to make sure they don’t need to be replaced.
Engine coolant and transmission fluid – These fluids can last a while, but might need to be replaced at about 60,000 miles.
