Your Guide to 2009 Dodge Avenger Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Dodge Avenger and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Avenger 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 Avenger maintenance. Just follow your 2009 Dodge Avenger maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Dodge themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Avenger perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2009 Dodge Avenger problems.

Overview of Essential Dodge Avenger Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2009 Dodge Avenger and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Avenger. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Dodge Avenger? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Avenger may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 Dodge Avenger 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 Avenger stranded. Your Dodge Avenger won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Dodge Avenger 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 2009 Avenger. 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 2009 Dodge Avenger.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Dodge Avenger can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Dodge Avenger steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Dodge Avenger's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Dodge Avenger services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Dodge Avenger engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Dodge Avenger? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

Questions About 2009 Dodge Avenger Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Dodge Avenger. Get answers to common Dodge Avenger maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Dodge Avenger alignment checked? 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 Dodge Avenger need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Dodge Avenger? 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 Dodge dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Dodge Avenger in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
