What to Know About 2005 Pontiac G6 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Pontiac G6 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your G6 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get G6 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 2005 Pontiac G6!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Pontiac themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your G6 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2005 Pontiac G6 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac G6

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2005 Pontiac G6 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 G6'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 2005 Pontiac G6? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your G6 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac G6 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Pontiac G6 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2005 Pontiac G6's engine run smoother. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2005 G6 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2005 Pontiac G6? We can help with that, too!

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac G6's steering and suspension system.

2005 Pontiac G6 Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2005 Pontiac G6. Get answers to common Pontiac G6 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Pontiac G6? You know your Pontiac G6 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Pontiac G6 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Pontiac G6 engines.
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Pontiac G6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
