Your Guide to 2020 Chevrolet Malibu Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Chevrolet Malibu to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Malibu 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 Malibu maintenance. Just follow your 2020 Chevrolet Malibu maintenance schedule!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Malibu perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2020 Chevrolet Malibu problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chevrolet Malibu Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2020 Chevrolet Malibu to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Malibu’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 Chevrolet Malibu. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Chevrolet Malibu 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 Chevrolet Malibu could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2020 Chevrolet Malibu running newer, longer. To learn how often Chevrolet recommends you have the oil changed in your 2020 Malibu, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Chevrolet Malibu? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Chevrolet Malibu steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Chevrolet Malibu steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Chevrolet Malibu's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Chevrolet Malibu 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 Malibu cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Chevrolet Malibu radiator? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2020 Chevrolet Malibu maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Chevrolet Malibu? You know your Chevrolet Malibu better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Chevrolet Malibu? If your Chevrolet Malibu has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Chevrolet dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Chevrolet Malibu to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
