You want your GMC Savana 1500 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Savana 1500 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 GMC Savana 1500!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Savana 1500 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 GMC Savana 1500 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your GMC Savana 1500

Bring your 2011 GMC Savana 1500 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Could your 2011 GMC Savana 1500 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. 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 Savana 1500 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 Savana 1500 stranded. Your GMC Savana 1500 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2011 GMC Savana 1500 engine. See GMC's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 Savana 1500 in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 GMC Savana 1500.
