How to Maintain Your GMC
If you have a GMC, you know that these vehicles have a reputation for being versatile and durable. They can also last for decades, as long as you take proper care of them. We are Community Buick GMC, and we have developed strong relationships with drivers throughout the local area because we are dedicated to their needs. Now, we would be happy to help you take care of your GMC as well. Learn more about proper vehicle maintenance below, and give us a call to schedule an appointment with our service center.
Change Your Oil on Time
First, you must make sure that you change your oil on time. The exact schedule will depend on the type of oil you have and the type of vehicle you drive, but you should try to change your oil at least once per year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. We understand that you might have questions about which type of oil is best for your vehicle, and we can help you compare the features and benefits of every option available.
Rotate Your Tires At Least Once Per Year
You also need to rotate your tires at least once per year or every 10,000 miles, whichever comes first. You need to rotate your tires because you want the treads on your tires to wear evenly. The treads at the front of your vehicle will not wear at the same rate as the tires at the back of your vehicle, so you need to rotate them if you want your tires to last as long as possible. The exact lifespan of your tires will vary depending on the type of tires you have and your driving style, but you may be able to get 30,000 miles out of your tires if you rotate them on time.
Swap Your Engine and Cabin Air Filters
Next, you should swap your engine and cabin air filters regularly. We would be happy to conduct an inspection to see if it is time for you to change your air filters. Your engine air filters are responsible for making sure dust and debris are not entering your engine, and your cabin air filters are responsible for making sure that your passengers have clean air to breathe. If you want your engine to run as well as possible, you need to swap your engine air filters on time.
Test Your Brakes
During your routine maintenance check, you should also test your brakes. We would be happy to take a closer look at your brakes to make sure nothing has to be replaced. Your brake fluid, brake calipers, brake rotors, and brake pads will have to be replaced or topped off from time to time. We will make sure that your brakes are working appropriately. That way, if you need to stop short, your vehicle will respond exactly as you expect.
Inspect Your Battery
Finally, we will also test your battery to make sure it is working appropriately. Your battery is responsible for making sure your engine starts when you turn the key, and we can test your battery to make sure it can still hold a charge. You should expect your battery to last between 3 and 5 years, but if your battery is reaching the end of its lifespan, we can help you find a new battery before your current battery dies. Count on the team from Community Buick GMC to help you take care of your vehicle.
