Take care of your Pontiac G8 and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your G8 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine G8 maintenance. Just follow your 2008 Pontiac G8 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your G8's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2008 Pontiac G8 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac G8 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2008 Pontiac G8 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your G8’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 Pontiac G8? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac G8 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your G8 stranded. Your Pontiac G8 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Pontiac G8 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 G8. 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 2008 Pontiac G8.

Maintaining your Pontiac G8 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Components within your Pontiac G8's steering system require regular maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Pontiac G8? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Pontiac G8? If your Pontiac G8 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Pontiac dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Pontiac G8 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
