By running a Vehicle Health Report (VHR) regularly, you can stay on top of the condition of your vehicle’s major components—such as oil life, engine and transmission, brakes and suspension, and fluid levels.

A VHR can help notify you when an urgent service may be required, as well as keep you up to date on your vehicle’s recommended maintenance and any open recalls. For convenience, a Vehicle Health Report also lists your Owner Advantage Rewards details, your preferred dealer, if you’ve chosen one, and enables you to schedule service appointments with that dealer.

What can I learn from my Vehicle Health Report?

Think of a Vehicle Health Report* as a snapshot in time of the health of your vehicle. For example, vehicle diagnostics use actual engine and operating conditions to calculate when you need an oil change. A VHR can make taking care of your vehicle easier by letting you know when service is required and providing you with information you need to plan for your next dealership visit.

Vehicle Health Reports include five categories of diagnostics

  1. Oil life

  2. Engine, transmission and emissions

  3. Brakes and suspension

  4. Restraints and driver assistance

  5. Check fluids and filters

Should service be needed, the VHR will alert you to the components that need attention along with information about what is happening and what to do about it.

Before running a Vehicle Health Report, you must first register for an Owner account and make the phone you’ll be using the Primary phone in your Owner account. Learn how to run a Vehicle Health Report.
