Factory Recommended MAintenance
Scheduled Maintenance for German and British Vehicles

Preventative maintenance is the key to vehicle longevity, safety and performance. German and British vehicles are known for engineering excellence and have tight tolerances, so some makes and models need more frequent factory recommended maintenance than non-German and non-British vehicles. MB Automotive Services in Rockville, MD provides European auto repair and factory recommended maintenance for many models, including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, and Land Rover.

The Importance of

Factory Recommended Maintenance

Sometimes referred to as preventative maintenance, factory recommended maintenance is a list of maintenance items that reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns, increase fuel economy, and increase safety.

Safety Features

When you bring your vehicle in for preventative maintenance, we complete safety checks of several systems, including the brakes, tires, steering and suspension. We will let you know what we find.
Additional safety maintenance includes:


Tires wear unevenly because of the location of the drive wheel(s) and the difference in weight on the tires. Front tires have to bear the weight of the engine, so they wear out faster than the rear tires. Rotating helps prevent uneven wear.


Cars go out of alignment for several reasons, including hitting potholes, driving on gravel roads, or rubbing a curb. Worn or broken suspension and steering components can also cause misalignment. Check your vehicle’s alignment once per year to increase tire longevity and reduce wear. We utilize state-of-the-art Hunter alignment machine.

Preserving Performance

Fluids get dirty over time, which decreases lubrication and affects performance and fuel economy. Following a strict maintenance schedule for tune-ups, oil changes, transmission flushes, coolant flushes, and other maintenance ensures your vehicle’s performance remains where you expect it to be. When oil and transmission fluid become dirty, they lose lubrication, which means more friction in the engine. When the engine has to work harder, it uses more fuel and loses power. Regularly changing the oil and flushing the transmission ensure that the engine and transmission have fresh oil to keep performance at peak levels.
