Your Guide to 2018 Buick LaCrosse Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Buick LaCrosse to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your LaCrosse could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your LaCrosse, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2018 Buick LaCrosse maintenance schedule!

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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your LaCrosse running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Buick LaCrosse problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Buick LaCrosse

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Buick LaCrosse for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your LaCrosse. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Buick LaCrosse? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your LaCrosse may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Buick LaCrosse battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Buick LaCrosse could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Buick LaCrosse engine. To learn how often Buick recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 LaCrosse, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Buick LaCrosse.

Maintaining your Buick LaCrosse steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Buick LaCrosse suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Buick LaCrosse's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Buick LaCrosse services, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Buick LaCrosse engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Buick LaCrosse? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2018 Buick LaCrosse maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Buick LaCrosse? You know your Buick LaCrosse 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 should I switch my Buick LaCrosse to high mileage oil? If your Buick LaCrosse has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Buick? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Buick LaCrosse to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
