Your Guide to 2017 Chevrolet Colorado Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Chevrolet Colorado, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Colorado could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Colorado, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado 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 Colorado perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2017 Chevrolet Colorado problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Chevrolet Colorado Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Colorado's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Colorado may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chevrolet Colorado 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. 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 Chevrolet Colorado won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2017 Colorado. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado.

Routine upkeep for your Chevrolet Colorado 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Chevrolet Colorado 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 Chevrolet Colorado's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Colorado maintenance, 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 Colorado cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Chevrolet Colorado? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2017 Chevrolet Colorado maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2017 Chevrolet Colorado Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado. Get answers to common Chevrolet Colorado maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Chevrolet Colorado alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2017 Colorado is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Chevrolet Colorado to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Chevrolet Colorado engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Chevrolet? 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 Colorado, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
