Here’s Why 2012 Porsche 911 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Porsche 911, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 911 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 911, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2012 Porsche 911 maintenance schedule!

Porsche 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 911 perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Porsche 911 problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Porsche 911

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Porsche 911 and our technicians will jump right in 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 911’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2012 Porsche 911. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Porsche 911 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 911 stranded. Your Porsche 911 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 prevent premature wear on your 2012 Porsche 911 engine. See Porsche's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 911 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. 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 2012 Porsche 911.

Maintaining your Porsche 911 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Porsche 911 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 Porsche 911's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Porsche 911 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 Porsche 911’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

2012 Porsche 911 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Porsche 911. Get answers to common Porsche 911 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Porsche 911? 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 does my Porsche 911 need high mileage oil? If your Porsche 911 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 Porsche dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Porsche 911, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
