What to Know About 2013 Porsche Boxster Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Porsche Boxster to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Boxster 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 Boxster maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Porsche Boxster!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Porsche, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Boxster's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2013 Porsche Boxster problems.

Overview of Essential Porsche Boxster Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Porsche Boxster for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Boxster. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Porsche Boxster. 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Boxster 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 Porsche Boxster won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Porsche Boxster engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 Boxster. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Porsche Boxster.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Porsche Boxster can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Porsche Boxster steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Porsche Boxster's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Porsche Boxster 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!). 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 Porsche Boxster engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Porsche Boxster? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Porsche Boxster maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Porsche Boxster? You know your Porsche Boxster better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Porsche Boxster? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Porsche Boxster engines.
  •  Why are my Porsche dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Porsche Boxster to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
