Manufacturer Recommended Maintenance

Why use us for Maintenance

Our technicians maintain your car like it was their own. We follow manufacturer guidelines to make sure that your vehicle gets the love and care it needs when it needs it.  And we also go above and beyond recommended service and include a full engine inspection to make sure that you know exactly what’s going on with your vehicle. When it comes to cars, surprises aren’t a good thing. Every appointment also includes a cleaning inside and a virus-killing germ bath treatment.

Purchasing a car is one of the largest investments you’ll make, so it’s worth taking care of it. Performing routine, preventative maintenance recommended by the manufacturer ensures that your vehicle remains safe to drive and can prevent serious problems in the future.

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, which means, you’ll save money by avoiding major problems in the future. 

It also maintains your car’s resale value. Not to mention that some warranties require regular maintenance to remain valid.

Maintenance costs vary widely depending on the make, model and maintenance intervals. Some are as simple as an oil change and tire balancing and others involve replacing fluids, belts and even brake pads. As a result, the range is broad from $0 (if it’s included with a new car maintenance plan) all the way up to the high hundreds.

As with all work done through CarCare, you’ll have the chance to review and approve any work with pricing before it’s done.


Maintenance used to be simple: Come in every 6 months or every 3,000 or 6,000 miles. No longer. Every manufacturer now tells you something different: come in after a certain number of miles, when the dashboard light comes on or when there’s a lunar eclipse. (Okay, no one says that, but you get the idea.) So we have to recommend that you check your manual.

However, call us old old-fashioned, but we’ve learned the hard way that you cannot go wrong by having a technician look at your car every six months. It’s the best way  to stay safe and avoid ill-timed surprise issues and extend the life of  your vehicle. 

We serve Washington DC, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Rockville, Potomac, Arlington, Alexandria, and the entire DMV region.
