Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 GMC R3500 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your R3500. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty R3500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC R3500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
