What to Know About 2010 Pontiac G6 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Pontiac G6, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your G6. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your G6, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2010 Pontiac G6 maintenance schedule!

Pontiac 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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your G6's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Pontiac G6 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac G6

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Pontiac G6 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your G6’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2010 Pontiac G6 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 Pontiac G6 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2010 Pontiac G6's engine run smoother. To learn how often Pontiac recommends you have the oil changed in your 2010 G6, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2010 Pontiac G6? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac G6 can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Pontiac G6's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac G6 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Pontiac G6 cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Pontiac G6 radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Pontiac G6 maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • When should I have Pontiac G6 alignment checked? You know your Pontiac G6 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.
