Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Buick Encore GX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Buick Encore GX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Encore GX may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Buick Encore GX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Encore GX stranded. Your Buick Encore GX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
