Take care of your Chrysler 300 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 300 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 300, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Chrysler 300!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Chrysler themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 300 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Chrysler 300 problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Chrysler 300 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2012 Chrysler 300 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 300. 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 Chrysler 300 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 300 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Chrysler 300 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. 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 Chrysler 300 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 2012 Chrysler 300 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 300. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 Chrysler 300? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Chrysler 300 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Chrysler 300 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Chrysler 300's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Chrysler 300 services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Chrysler 300 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Chrysler 300 radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Chrysler 300 maintenance.

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

2012 Chrysler 300 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Chrysler 300. Get answers to common Chrysler 300 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Chrysler 300? 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 should I switch my Chrysler 300 to high mileage oil? If your Chrysler 300 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 Chrysler 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 Chrysler 300, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
