Here’s Why 2006 Pontiac Montana Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Pontiac Montana and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Montana could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Montana 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 2006 Pontiac Montana!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Montana running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2006 Pontiac Montana problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Montana Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Pontiac Montana 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 Montana’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2006 Pontiac Montana. 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Montana may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Montana 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 Montana won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Pontiac Montana engine. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Montana in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2006 Pontiac Montana? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Pontiac Montana steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Pontiac Montana suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Pontiac Montana's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Pontiac Montana maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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 Montana cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Pontiac Montana radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2006 Pontiac Montana maintenance.
