How often should I service my 1997 Buick LeSabre?
Take care of your Buick LeSabre and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your LeSabre could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get LeSabre maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1997 Buick LeSabre!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Buick, your vehicle manufacturer. 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your LeSabre's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1997 Buick LeSabre problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1997 Buick LeSabre 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your LeSabre’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1997 Buick LeSabre. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 LeSabre 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 LeSabre stranded. Your Buick LeSabre won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1997 Buick LeSabre's engine run smoother. To learn how often Buick recommends you have the oil changed in your 1997 LeSabre, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1997 Buick LeSabre? We can help with that, too!
