Your Guide to 2014 Buick Encore Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Buick Encore, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Encore could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Encore maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Buick Encore!

Buick knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Encore perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 Buick Encore problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Buick Encore Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2014 Buick Encore for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Encore. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2014 Buick Encore be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 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 stranded. Your Buick Encore won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2014 Buick Encore engine. See Buick's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2014 Encore in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 Buick Encore.

Routine upkeep for your Buick Encore suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Buick Encore steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Buick Encore's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Buick Encore maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Buick Encore cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Buick Encore radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2014 Buick Encore maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2014 Buick Encore Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Buick Encore. Get answers to common Buick Encore maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Buick Encore? You know your Buick Encore better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Buick Encore need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Buick Encore engines.
  • Can Buick dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Buick Encore in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
