Oldsmobile 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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.

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1983 Oldsmobile Toronado 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Toronado’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1983 Oldsmobile Toronado be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Toronado) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Oldsmobile Toronado could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
