Overview of Essential GMC Savana 1500 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 GMC Savana 1500 for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Savana 1500. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 GMC Savana 1500. In general, car batteries only last three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Savana 1500) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your GMC Savana 1500 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
