Whether you drive a BMW, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Mini, Audi, or Volkswagen, proper maintenance is paramount to keeping your vehicle on the road. It is important to note that each manufacturer publishes recommended service and maintenance intervals. These are recommendations based on normal operating and environmental conditions. It is equally important to recognize that these may vary based on how the vehicle is used and the geographic region where the vehicle resides.

Through the years, Porsche has changed the recommended service and maintenance intervals for most models. Please check your owner’s manual and contact the Porsche experts at German Auto Center to keep your Porsche operating as it was designed.
