Here’s Why 2006 Pontiac Solstice Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Pontiac Solstice, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Solstice. 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 Solstice, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Pontiac Solstice!

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. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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 Solstice's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Pontiac Solstice problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Pontiac Solstice

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Pontiac Solstice and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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 Solstice’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2006 Pontiac Solstice be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Solstice may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Pontiac Solstice battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Solstice) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Pontiac Solstice won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Pontiac Solstice engine. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Solstice in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Pontiac Solstice.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Solstice can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 Solstice 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 Solstice's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Pontiac Solstice 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.

  • When should I have Pontiac Solstice alignment checked? 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 switch my Pontiac Solstice to high mileage oil? If your Pontiac Solstice 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Pontiac? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Pontiac Solstice, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
