Factory Recommended Services-Mission Viejo, CA
MDM is proud to provide top-quality Factory Recommended Care and Services for:
When you go to a dealer for factory recommended services, you will be presented with a menu of different services. They may also try to sell you what they call maintenance packages. These maintenance packages will generally include things like flushes in various parts of your car. Needless to say, these are neither needed nor recommended for your vehicle.
It is important that you thoroughly read your owner’s manual for your vehicle. Don’t just read through it though, gain an understanding of what it says. When you have that understanding you will know when a dealership is trying to get more money out of you by charging you for services that you don’t need.
That isn’t to say that all dealerships do this…they don’t. The ones that do not use these practices though are very few and far between.
There are different factory recommended services that should be performed within a certain time frame in order to maintain the validity of your car’s warranty. These services are typically performed at 30,000, 60,000 and 90,000 miles depending on the type of service. These services can include brake system service/flush, fuel injection, induction service, power system flush, automatic transmission flush, cooling system service and flush and replacing the timing belt.
At MDM, we have records from the various manufacturers that tell us exactly what factory recommended services need to be performed on your vehicle as well as the time frame that these services need to be completed in. Because we only use OEM parts, you can rest assured that you will be getting exactly what your car needs as well as what the warranty demands. Our staff of professionals is able to answer any questions that you may have and will keep you updated throughout the process. When you get your factory recommended service done at MDM, you get it from the best.
