Severe Driving In Bedford

pic of man looking for auto repair vehicle service in Bedford

Most Bedford motorists know that their owner's manuals have schedules for when to service your vehicle. What they may not know is that there are actually two service schedules: the regular schedule and the severe service schedule. The mileage and time intervals are lower on the severe service schedule.

What qualifies my vehicle for severe service?

When you hear “severe service”, you may think it doesn't apply to you because you don't feel your driving conditions are severe or extreme – it's just normal everyday driving around Bedford. At Town Hill Auto Sales and Service, our knowledgeable service advisors would be happy to discuss the conditions that manufacturers classify as severe so that you can make the judgment on your own driving. Here are a few of the conditions that classify as severe:

  • Most of your trips are less than four miles

  • Most of your trips are less than ten miles and outside temperatures are below freezing in Bedford

  • You drive in very hot PA weather

  • Driving at low speed most of the time (under 55 mph)

  • Stop and go driving

  • Operating your vehicle in dusty, polluted or muddy conditions

  • You tow a trailer, regularly carry heavy loads or carry a car-top carrier on your vehicle

How do I know which schedule to follow?

Most Bedford drivers operate under severe driving conditions at least some of the time. How do you know which schedule to follow for your vehicle?

Carefully think about your driving conditions and decide if you should do your preventive maintenance closer to the severe service recommendation or the regular recommendation. Of course, your Town Hill Auto Sales and Service advisor can help you with your decision.
