Here’s Why 2008 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your GMC Acadia, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Acadia 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. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Acadia maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 GMC Acadia!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Acadia running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2008 GMC Acadia problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC Acadia

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 GMC Acadia 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 Acadia’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 GMC Acadia? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your GMC Acadia battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 GMC Acadia won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2008 GMC Acadia's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 Acadia. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2008 GMC Acadia? We can help with that, too!
