What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2016 GMC Canyon?

Here’s Why 2016 GMC Canyon Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your GMC Canyon, 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 Canyon has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Canyon, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 GMC Canyon!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Canyon perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 GMC Canyon problems in the future.

Overview of Essential GMC Canyon Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 GMC Canyon and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Canyon's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 GMC Canyon. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your GMC Canyon 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. 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 Canyon won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 GMC Canyon running newer, longer. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 Canyon in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2016 GMC Canyon.

Routine upkeep for your GMC Canyon suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate GMC Canyon 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. Components within your GMC Canyon's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine GMC Canyon 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 Canyon engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your GMC Canyon radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 GMC Canyon maintenance and repairs.

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