It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2009 Pontiac Solstice!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Pontiac, your vehicle manufacturer.

Overview of Essential Pontiac Solstice Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Pontiac Solstice for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Solstice's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2009 Pontiac Solstice be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Solstice may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Pontiac Solstice battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Solstice could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Pontiac Solstice running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 Solstice. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2009 Pontiac Solstice.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Pontiac Solstice can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Pontiac Solstice's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Pontiac Solstice 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Pontiac Solstice engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Pontiac Solstice radiator in need of replacement? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Pontiac Solstice maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
