Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac G6 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Pontiac G6 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your G6. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 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. 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 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2009 Pontiac G6's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 G6. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2009 Pontiac G6? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Pontiac G6 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Pontiac G6 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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.

Without routine Pontiac G6 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Pontiac G6 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Pontiac G6 radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2009 Pontiac G6 maintenance and repairs.
