Your Guide to 2012 Chevrolet Caprice Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Caprice to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Caprice. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Caprice maintenance. Just follow your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Chevrolet, 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Caprice perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Chevrolet Caprice problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Caprice Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 Caprice. 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 Caprice 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 Caprice may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Caprice 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Caprice stranded. Your Chevrolet Caprice could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Caprice. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Chevrolet Caprice.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication.
