The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the most popular midsize crossovers you can buy today. It provides plenty of room for large families and comes with a host of standard features that pleases customers at dealerships like the Chevrolet dealer in Moscow.
Traverse owners can protect their investment by bringing their vehicle to a service center for scheduled maintenance. Adhering to Chevrolet’s recommended schedule will help to provide drivers with many years of reliable performance. You can find the Traverse’s maintenance schedule in your owner’s manual, but here’s a quick rundown on some of the key service milestones.
According to Chevrolet Moscow, the 2020 Traverse should get maintenance service every 7,500 miles. The service technicians will change the vehicle’s oil and oil filter. This important service will keep the engine from wearing out prematurely. While motor oil is formulated to last a long time, the protective additives will begin to deteriorate over time.
Another important service during this visit is a brake inspection. Stop-and-go driving can cause the brake pads to wear more quickly. The technician will also inspect the tires and check the wear patterns for signs the vehicle needs a wheel alignment. Driving over a curb or a pothole can cause the suspension system to become misaligned. Other services that will be performed at this juncture include a tire rotation, a wiper inspection and a check of the fluid levels.
When the odometer in your 2020 Chevrolet Traverse reaches 45,000 miles, the engine’s air cleaner filter will need replacement. When the engine air filter becomes clogged, the vehicle will take a performance hit. If the engine’s air intake is blocked, it will result in weak acceleration and a drop in fuel economy. Additionally, the transmission fluid will be changed.
The spark plugs should get replaced about once every 100,000 miles. Spark plugs have a big impact on your Traverse’s performance. If you don’t change the spark plugs, the vehicle is likely to be difficult to start, and it may hesitate. There will be a decrease in fuel economy, and you may see the check engine light come on.
The engine’s coolant needs to be flushed and changed when the vehicle reaches the 150,000-mile mark. Coolant helps prevent overheating during the hot summer months, and it keeps the engine from freezing when the weather is cold. When the coolant gets old, it can’t prevent oxidation, which means there’s a greater chance of corrosion. The technicians will also inspect the coolant hoses and the drive belts for signs of wear. If a belt show cracks or slick spots, it will need to be replaced.
