If you’re looking for a small seven-seat SUV with everything you need, you’ll appreciate the 2020 Dodge Journey. It has an exceptional number of standard and available features, and a lower price tag than most competitors. There’s plenty of space for passengers and their stuff. To ensure your new Dodge Journey remains reliable for years to come, it’s essential to bring it in for routine maintenance according to the schedule recommended by the manufacturer. Here’s an overview of some of the milestones of the 2020 Dodge Journey maintenance schedule.
10,000 Miles Service
Your 2020 Dodge Journey should get scheduled maintenance every 10,000 miles. At the 10,000-mile mark, it will be time for the first service visit. Services performed at a dealership like the New Buffalo Dodge dealer will include an oil and oil filter change. Other maintenance services at this level include a fluid-level check, tire rotation and a battery inspection.
20,000 Miles Service
When your odometer reaches 20,000 miles, it will be time for your next maintenance visit, which will include the standard services that come with the 10,000-mile service, and a replacement of the air conditioning filter. The service technicians will inspect the suspension and brake systems.
The 30,000-mile maintenance visit starts with the standard maintenance services and adds an engine air filter replacement. If your Journey is equipped with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, it’s recommended to change the spark plugs. This is also a good time to inspect the vehicle’s CV joint.
In addition to the services of the 10,000-, 20,000- and 30,000-mile visits, the 60,000-mile visit is the time to replace the rear drive assembly fluid and change the power transfer unit fluid.
Congratulations! You’ve made it to 100,000 miles. It’s time for some major maintenance services. If your Journey has a 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood, you’ll need to have the spark plugs replaced. This level also includes a coolant flush and replacement. The PCV valve should be inspected and replaced if needed.
In addition to the other services (except the 100,000-mile service), this visit includes a replacement of the automatic transmission filter and an automatic transmission fluid change.
Keeping up with your 2020 Dodge Journey’s maintenance schedule will help ensure it will always perform at its best. If you stay on top of the maintenance schedule, you’ll be less likely to run into problems. You can find the complete maintenance schedule in your Journey’s owner’s manual.
