What to Know About 2009 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your GMC Acadia, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Acadia. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2009 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; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Acadia's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 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 2009 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Acadia's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2009 GMC Acadia be ready for a new battery? 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. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Acadia) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Acadia won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2009 GMC Acadia's engine run smoother. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 2009 Acadia, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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.

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

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

  • When should I have GMC Acadia 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 GMC Acadia need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your GMC Acadia? 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 GMC 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 GMC Acadia, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
