Want Cheaper Car Maintenance? Revisit Your Manual

Man driving carThe need for maintenance increases as your car spends more time on the road, ageing like a workhorse. With your Porsche, the extra weight of keeping it in its top shape may be challenging that a repair here and there may no longer be cost-effective. Worse, your dealership may not be the best place to look for scheduled visits, much less dedicated maintenance.

It’s wise then to have scheduled maintenance, notes formulamotorsports.com. To ensure lower costs in maintaining your car’s condition, dust off your car’s manual and take advantage of a scheduled plan.

Go back to your car’s manual

Going over the owner’s manual may be unsettling to some, but you only had to look over a few pages in one special section: maintenance schedule. The schedule is a chart that tells you when you should have your car serviced. It also includes all other important work that your car must undergo to complete the maintenance requirements.

The schedule is a guide made by the carmaker, and not from your dealership. So expect nothing but a pure regard for your Porsche, not additional costs for, say, a transmission flush costing over a hundred dollars or worse, an upsell for additional repairs costing hundreds more.

Take advantage of a plan

Porsche offers a scheduled maintenance plan tailored to benefit owners. You can save more over the plan’s life compared to having to pay for individual services every visit or so.

The Porsche plan locks in the total cost of routine maintenance throughout the life of the term, so there are no worries for future inflation. You can also expect quality service as repairs and replacements only use genuine parts. This guarantees confidence as you’re assured of the right service from Porsche technicians.
