How often should I service my 1999 GMC Safari?
You want your GMC Safari to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Safari could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Safari 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 1999 GMC Safari!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, GMC themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Safari running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1999 GMC Safari problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1999 GMC Safari for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Safari's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1999 GMC Safari? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Safari battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Safari stranded. Your GMC Safari 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 help your 1999 GMC Safari's engine run smoother.

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 1999 GMC Safari.
