Take care of your Chevrolet Captiva Sport and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Captiva Sport. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Captiva Sport, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport!

Chevrolet 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; 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 Captiva Sport perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Chevrolet Captiva Sport

Bring your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Captiva Sport’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2012 Chevrolet Captiva Sport 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Chevrolet Captiva Sport battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Captiva Sport stranded. Your Chevrolet Captiva Sport won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chevrolet Captiva Sport? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Chevrolet Captiva Sport need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Chevrolet Captiva Sport? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Chevrolet Captiva Sport, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
