Overview of Essential GMC K2500 Suburban Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban 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.

Could your 1996 GMC K2500 Suburban 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).

Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your K2500 Suburban stranded.
