Land Rover Service Schedules
Land Rover considers its vehicles and investment: something that buyers need to put their money into maintaining. For this reason, the company insists that customers stick to a service schedule – a list of specific work that mechanics need to perform at regular intervals.
In this article, we’re going to describe the work that needs to be carried out at each milestone and how J&Z can help.
The 15,000-mile Service
Once your Land Rover hits 15,000 miles, it’s time for its first significant overhaul. You could cover 15,000 miles anywhere from three months to five years into your ownership, so be sure to keep an eye on the mileometer.
Here are some of the things that we inspect at the 15,000-mile mark:
- Parking brake reliability
- The drive belts and exhaust
- Head and tail lights
- Cooling systems and fluid
- Braking systems
- The exhaust
- The underside of the vehicle
- Wheels and tires
- Wiper mechanism and blades
It’s worth pointing out that if you use your car in harsh weather or off-road, you may need a check-up sooner than Land Rover recommends. Speak with our professionals today to find out whether your vehicle may require an early service.
The 30,000-mile Service
After 30,000 miles, Land Rovers require extra servicing, in addition to that which they received at the 15,000-mile mark.
- Inspection of the fuel lines
- Review of the driveshaft
- Inspection of brake hoses, calipers, and discs
- Changing of the brake fluid
- Examination of the suspension system
- Inspection and maintenance of the seatbelts
- Checking of the steering column
- Testing of the steering hydraulics
The 60,000-mile Service
Many modern cars, including Land Rovers, are designed to last well over 60,000 miles. It is at this point in the life of their vehicles, however, when many owners start to experience costly problems with their cars. That’s why a 60,000-mile check-up and service is so important.
Land Rover recommends that mechanics carry out the following, in addition to all of the procedures from the 15,000 service:
- Suspension inspection
- Inspection of the drive train
- Examination of the brake hoses
- Power steering hose inspection
- Seat belt fitting and performance inspection
- Inspection of the steering system
- Change of the brake fluid
- Checking of the fuel lines
- Examination of the wiring harness
Having your Land Rover regularly serviced according to the manufacturer’s schedule is a vital part of owning one of these vehicles. Without proper maintenance, you could find yourself with costly Land Rover repairs in the future, increasing the total price of ownership dramatically.
