If you've been driving your vehicle for years, you've probably gotten pretty attached to it. Cars are expensive and you've been taking good care of it for quite a few years. However, once your vehicle has passed the 60,000 mile mark, it's considered high mileage. There are many things you can do to keep your vehicle lasting as long as possible. One of those things is to receive proper maintenance services! Luckily for you, Wrench has a variety of experienced mobile mechanics that can bring almost any auto repair solution right to your doorstep.

Say goodbye to inconvenient wait times and canceled plans! Our mobile mechanics are very experienced when it comes to high mileage vehicles so you can go about your day without worrying.
Even if you think your car isn't at risk, it's always best to get it checked out by a professional. If you notice any issues with your vehicle before it hits 60,000 miles, you should still see one of our skilled mobile mechanics. Usually car owners believe high mileage becomes an issue at 100,000 miles, but these issues you begin to experience at 100,000 miles could be prevented by caring for your car a bit sooner.
What to do When Your Car Hits 60,000 Miles
- Check Your Vehicles Oil
Although you should be getting your oil checked, or checking it yourself regularly, it becomes even more important for high mileage vehicles. You can even get special oil that is designed to help your vehicle last long and prevent wear and tear from constant use.
- Check Your Coolant
Again, you should be getting you coolant checked every once and a while. If you fail to notice when your coolant levels are low, your car could begin to overheat. This could cause serious, irreversible damage that is easily avoidable. When your mileage increases, this becomes even more important. You will need to stay on top of your vehicle's maintenance schedule and Wrench's mobile mechanics can help with that!
- Check Your Tires
When your car has a lot of mile on it, you should make sure you are keeping your tires in the best condition. Worn out or deflated tires can cause a wide range of issues, so it's best to stay on top of things by getting them checked regularly. Hire one of our mobile mechanics to check your tire pressure or tread.
- Wax Your Car's Exterior
To keep your car looking its best over the year, you should be sure to get it waxed. Waxing your car can prevent damage from rust or other weather related issues. Not only will it be running at it's best, but it will look like it too!
- Replace Your Air Filter
Over time you will need to replace your air filter, so once your car has hit about 60,000 miles, you should have one of our mechanics take a look at it. Most people forget about their air filter because it doesn't need constant attention, but with Wrench you will always know which services are recommended for your vehicle.
- Get Your Transmission Fluid Changed
You should get your transmission fluid changed every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, so it is easy to forget about this one. When your mileage starts going up, book your appointment to change the transmission fluid so you can prevent the costly consequences.
- Check Your Brakes
If you have any issues with your brakes, you should book an appointment with our mechanics immediately. Your brakes are a very important safety feature and if they are compromised, you could get in a serious accident. As your mileage increases, you will need to make sure you keep an eye on your brakes because they can get worn out pretty fast with excessive use.
- Check Your Spark Plugs
It depends on the type of spark plugs in your vehicle for the recommended replacement. Some can last up to 100,000, so they may not be on your radar. Our mobile mechanics can check your spark plugs to make sure they are still working properly, but you should check them every once and a while. Worn out spark plugs are detrimental to your vehicle's health.
