What to Know About 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Avalanche to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Avalanche has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Avalanche maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chevrolet themselves. 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Avalanche's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche problems.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Avalanche Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche and our technicians will jump right in with 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 Avalanche. 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 Chevrolet Avalanche be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Avalanche may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Avalanche battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Avalanche) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Chevrolet Avalanche 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 help your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche's engine run smoother. See Chevrolet's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Avalanche in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Avalanche suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Chevrolet Avalanche steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Chevrolet Avalanche's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Chevrolet Avalanche 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chevrolet Avalanche cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Chevrolet Avalanche? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Chevrolet Avalanche maintenance.
