Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC R2500 Suburban

Bring your 1989 GMC R2500 Suburban to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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 R2500 Suburban's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 1989 GMC R2500 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). 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 R2500 Suburban 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. 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 R2500 Suburban 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 1989 GMC R2500 Suburban running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1989 R2500 Suburban.

A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs.
