What to Know About 2018 GMC Acadia Scheduled Maintenance

You want your GMC Acadia to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Acadia has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Acadia maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 GMC Acadia!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by GMC, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 GMC Acadia problems.

Overview of Essential GMC Acadia Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 GMC Acadia to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2018 GMC Acadia. 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). 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. 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 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 GMC Acadia running newer, longer. To learn how often GMC recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Acadia, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 GMC Acadia.

Periodic service to the steering system in your GMC Acadia can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate GMC Acadia 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your GMC Acadia's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine GMC Acadia maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Need a new GMC Acadia radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 GMC Acadia maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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 should I switch my GMC Acadia to 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.
  •  Why are my GMC dashboard lights on? 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
