What to Know About 2013 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your GMC Acadia and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Acadia could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 Acadia maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 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. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Acadia's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2013 GMC Acadia problems.

Overview of Essential GMC Acadia Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 GMC Acadia and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 GMC Acadia? In general, car batteries only last 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC Acadia battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Acadia stranded. Your GMC Acadia won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 GMC Acadia engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Acadia in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 GMC Acadia.

Maintaining your GMC Acadia steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide GMC Acadia steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your GMC Acadia's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine GMC Acadia maintenance, 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. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire GMC Acadia cooling, heating, and climate control system.

2013 GMC Acadia Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 GMC Acadia. Get answers to common GMC Acadia maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my GMC Acadia? You know your GMC Acadia better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my GMC Acadia to high mileage oil? If your GMC Acadia 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my GMC? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your GMC Acadia 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.
