Vehicle Maintenance Schedule

Vehicle Maintenance Information

For oil change intervals, follow your vehicle manufacturer's recommendation or 5,000 miles, whichever comes first. 

  • PRIOR TO TAKING TO A SHOP, THE VEHICLE OPERATOR CALLS 1-800-CAR-CARE AND DISCUSSES THE NEED WITH AN ARI CERTIFIED MECHANIC
  • ARI REVIEWS THE VEHICLE’S MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR HISTORY AND RECOMMENDS AN ARI-APPROVED VENDOR THAT BEST FITS THE REPAIR NEEDED AND THE CURRENT VEHICLE LOCATION
  • THE OPERATOR TAKES THE VEHICLE TO THE RECOMMENDED FACILITY
  • THE FACILITY CONTACTS ARI TO REVIEW THE WORK REQUESTED AND FOR AUTHORIZATION OF THE REPAIR AND THE COST OF PERFORMING THE WORK. REMEMBER THAT ALL TIRE PURCHASES (WHICH ARE ON A STATE-WIDE CONTRACT WITH GOODYEAR) AND REPAIRS OVER $500.00 THRESHOLD WILL REQUIRE THE REVIEW AND APPROVAL FROM YOUR AFC. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND WHEN YOU TAKE THE VEHICLE TO A FACILITY AND PLAN TO WAIT FOR REPAIRS TO BE COMPLETED
  • REMEMBER TO CONTACT ARI PRIOR TO SCHEDULING ANY REPAIRS FOR A VEHICLE AS THIS HELPS ARI TRACK/MANAGE EXTRANEOUS ADD-ON CHARGES THAT MAY NOT RELATE TO YOUR ORIGINAL REASON FOR SCHEDULING MAINTENANCE

The ARI Service Card is used to purchase miscellaneous items such as windshield wiper blades, fluids, etc.) for maintenance and repairs.  There is a $50 limit on the card.
