What to Know About 2012 Cadillac CTS Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Cadillac CTS, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your CTS has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get CTS maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2012 Cadillac CTS maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Cadillac, 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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 CTS's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Cadillac CTS problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Cadillac CTS Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2012 Cadillac CTS to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 CTS. 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 2012 Cadillac CTS be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your CTS may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Cadillac CTS engine. See Cadillac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 CTS 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. 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 2012 Cadillac CTS? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Cadillac CTS steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Cadillac CTS steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Cadillac CTS's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Cadillac CTS maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Cadillac CTS engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Cadillac CTS radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2012 Cadillac CTS maintenance.
