Heavy duty commuter recommended maintenance?

4223 Views 44 Replies 14 Participants Last post by  Ma v e n
I've got a 2017 Cruze LT RS...and I also commute 180 miles a day, 5 days a week. That's about 45k miles a year. That being said, I'm not exactly car savvy and my dealer is hit or miss in terms of maintenance recommendations.

I'm at 66k now and I last did a bigger maintenance run at 45k (basic level, transmission fluid change, etc). My manual says to replace the spark plugs at 60k.

If I want this beauty to last until I pay her off (another 4 years and 150k or more miles) should I be preparing for some epic maintenance or just keep steady on timely oil changes and follow the manual?

Thanks in advance for anyone who comments in on this.

Makes me wonder if I should try mid-grade or premium in my Volt on my next road trip. It's the same generation engine as the Gen 2 Cruze.
You can try it but I'm not sure what kind of returns you'll get on that change. The last time I checked the volt doesn't have the gasoline motor generating kinetic energy for the wheels. What it does is generate electricity to power the electric engine. This may have changed in later generations.
