The 2019 Chevrolet Trax is a subcompact crossover SUV that’s great for driving around the city. The Trax can get in and out of tight urban spaces with ease. Outfitted with four-wheel drive, the Trax is a champ on winding rural roads. According to the Chevrolet service near Spokane Valley, this fun-to-drive crossover comes in three trim levels and is powered by a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
If you own the 2019 Trax, you’ll want to make sure it continues to run just as well as it did when it was brand new. The best way to ensure you’ll enjoy years of trouble-free driving is to follow Chevrolet’s recommended maintenance schedule. The service performed at each service interval will keep your Trax running smoothly and safely, and the inspections during each scheduled maintenance visit can prevent your vehicle from breaking down. Fortunately, you can schedule Chevy Service near Spokane Valley when it’s time to bring your Trax for maintenance.
Chevrolet recommends that you bring your Trax in for scheduled maintenance every 7,500 miles. This means your first maintenance visit will be at 7,500 miles, with subsequent visits at 15,000 miles, 22,500 miles, 30,000 miles and so on. During your service visit, the certified technicians will inspect your Trax’s major systems to ensure that there are no problems and you won’t have to worry about a breakdown later on.
These are some of the services that will be performed by the service technicians during different scheduled maintenance visits:
At 7,500 miles, the technicians will check the engine oil. They may change the oil or fill the oil level. If the air filter needs replacing, they’ll change it. They’ll check the Trax’s restraint system, as well as the fuel system. Additionally, the service technicians will check the tires for proper inflation and any wear, and check the ignition transmission lock, the automatic transmission shift lock and the accelerator pedal.
At 15,000 miles, in addition to the standard maintenance service performed at 7,500 miles, the windshield wipers will need replacement.
At this milestone, the service technicians will perform the same services as the 7,500-mile service and they’ll replace the passenger compartment air filter.
The 30,000-mile maintenance visit is the same as a the 15,000-mile maintenance visit.
The 37,000-mile maintenance visit is the same as the 7,500-mile visit.
At 47,000 miles, in addition to the services of the 7,500-mile visit, the technicians will replace the passenger compartment air filter, inspect the evaporative control system and replace the engine air cleaner filter.
Most of the tasks performed on your Chevrolet Trax during scheduled maintenance visits require a trained technician, however, there are some things you can do to keep your Trax in top form in-between service visits. This will keep your Trax running in optimal condition.
The most important thing you can do is to check your engine oil at every fuel stop to determine whether your Trax is low on oil. If it is, add the correct type of oil to the proper level. If you’re not sure which type of oil is best for your vehicle, consult your owner’s manual or contact your dealer.
When you need an oil change, don’t put it off for more than 600 miles. Your engine needs to stay lubricated to run properly. Delaying an oil change can cause damage to the engine.
Finally, check your tires for wear every month and make sure they’re properly inflated. Driving your Trax on under- or over-inflated tires is dangerous and can shorten the life of the tire.
