Your Guide to 2012 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your GMC Acadia and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Acadia has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 GMC Acadia!

GMC 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Acadia perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2012 GMC Acadia problems.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 GMC Acadia and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2012 GMC Acadia be ready for a new battery? 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 Acadia may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC Acadia battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 GMC Acadia engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Acadia. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2012 GMC Acadia.

Routine upkeep for your GMC Acadia suspension and steering system 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 GMC Acadia suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

If you fall behind on routine GMC Acadia maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 GMC Acadia engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
