Your Guide to 2008 Pontiac Solstice Scheduled Maintenance

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, your Solstice has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Solstice maintenance. Just follow your 2008 Pontiac Solstice 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Solstice running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2008 Pontiac Solstice problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Pontiac Solstice Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2008 Pontiac Solstice to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Solstice’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Pontiac Solstice. 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Solstice battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Solstice won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2008 Pontiac Solstice's engine run smoother. See Pontiac's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2008 Solstice in the chart at the top of this page. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2008 Pontiac Solstice.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Solstice can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Pontiac Solstice steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Pontiac Solstice's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Pontiac Solstice services, 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Pontiac Solstice’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Pontiac Solstice? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it.
