Scheduled Sprinter Van Maintenance
All brands of Sprinter vans require scheduled
maintenance intervals. Depending on the type of fluids your
vehicles take, whether it is synthetic oils or regular oils
you need to make sure you are performing the required maintenance
at the manufactures set intervals. One of the main reasons for
doing this is to prevent in voiding your warranty if you still
have a warranty on your vehicle. If you have something like
a transmission fail prematurely and you are going after warranty,
most of the time the dealer or manufacturer wants to see records,
receipts and maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Without
that info the dealer or manufacturer can and most of the time
will denied the claim and you will be responsible for paying
that hefty bill.
To view your specific vehicles scheduled maintenance
plan, sometimes you can find it in your owner’s manual, or look
it up on the internet or just call or e-mail us and we can tell
you exactly what is due on your vehicle and save you headaches,
time and money
