6,000 Mile Service

Your basic service for the Charger happens after 6,000 miles or about six months, whichever comes first. The main thing here is an oil and oil filter change. Oil is the lifeblood of your Charger, so you need to make sure it's fresh and ready to go. Go ahead and get your tires rotated too to ensure even wear. Remember to repeat this service and every subsequent service in regular intervals to stay on top of your Charger's health.

12,000 Mile Service

 At this service, you should take a serious look at your brakes. The Charger has a lot of power behind it, so the brakes have to work extra hard to add the stopping power you need. In addition, you should get your cabin air filter replaced and make sure you get your hoses and belts inspected. They're probably fine, but it never hurts to check.

24,000 Mile Service

By this time, your tires have probably taken quite the beating. Don't be surprised if they need to be completely replaced. In addition, your brake pads need to be replaced at this point. After 24,000 miles, they've essentially been used to drive completely around the planet, so serious wear isn't surprising.

48,000 Mile Service

For this service, you'll be seeing quite a few replacements. It's time to flush and replace a few of your fluids like transmission fluid, engine coolant and brake fluid. You should also go ahead and switch out your timing belt and drive belt.

96,000 Mile Service

After you've had your Charger for this long, it might be time for more serious repairs. The most extensive will be replacing your motor mount and suspension bushings. It may seem tedious and costly, but the future problems it prevents are worth it. Don't forget to have your hoses themselves replaced in addition to having the fluid flushed and replaced.
