What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2001 GMC Safari?
You want your GMC Safari to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Safari. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Safari maintenance. Just follow your 2001 GMC Safari maintenance schedule!
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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Safari's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2001 GMC Safari problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2001 GMC Safari for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Safari’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 2001 GMC Safari be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Safari) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Safari won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2001 GMC Safari's engine run smoother.

Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.
