BE READY AT EVERY TURN


ASSESSING TIRE CONDITION

The condition of your tires can affect everything from handling to gas mileage. Many factors including time, temperature, loading conditions, and improper inflation can affect how fast a tire ages.

THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)

The TPMS works by sending a signal from the pressure sensor, located in your vehicle’s wheel, to the instrument control panel, which alerts you when the tire pressure is low. It is recommended that a trained professional inspect, and, if necessary, service your TPMS to determine if it is working properly.

WHEN TO CHECK TIRE PRESSURE

If your vehicle is not equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), check your tires at least once a month with a tire pressure gauge (your vehicle’s recommended tire pressure number likely can be found on a sticker inside the driver’s door).

WHEN SHOULD I REPLACE MY TIRES?

Place a penny upside down in between the most severely worn part of the tire’s tread grove. If the tread doesn’t touch the top of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to replace your tires. Also, tread wear indicators will appear when the tires only have 2/32 inch or less of tread remaining which indicate replacement. And if a tire or sidewall is split, bulging, cracked, or has tire cord fabric showing, it’s time for replacement.

WHEN SHOULD I ROTATE MY TIRES?

To help equalize wear, tires typically should be rotated every 7,500 miles.

DO I NEED AN ALIGNMENT?

If you notice any of the following, it may be time for a tire or alignment service: wheel bends or dents, recurring loss of tire pressure, bumps in the tire sidewalls, vibration emanating from the wheels, or unusual front-end movement when driving on flat surfaces.

OIL INSIGHTS

Newer Buick vehicles are equipped with an engine Oil Life System (OLS). This system continuously monitors your driving conditions and helps determine when it’s time for an oil change. When the OLS light comes on, it’s time for service. It’s an accurate, effective way to save money and help reduce oil waste.

For vehicles without an OLS, your Buick Certified Service expert can help you determine the right interval for your Buick.

READY, SET, STOP

Your brakes are one of the most important safety systems on your Buick. So be sure to have your brakes checked regularly to help prevent unnecessary damage to their components including rotors, calipers, and other related systems.

It’s recommended that a trained professional such as your Buick Certified Service expert inspect, and if needed, service your braking system to determine if all components are working properly. Your Buick Certified Service experts can recommend quality brake components such as ACDelco.  

KEEP CHARGING ON

In general, you can count on your Buick’s battery to last an average of 3 to 5 years. It depends on a number of factors including your driving habits and the climate in which you live. In general, warmer climates tend to increase damage, but other issues can have an impact on battery failure, such as infrequent start-ups and discharged batteries freezing at 320 F. It’s recommended that a trained professional inspect and service your battery to help ensure the system is working properly. Your Buick Certified Service experts can recommend quality components, such as ACDelco batteries, that are designed, tested, and backed by Buick. 

TRANSMISSION TIPS

Your transmission fluid and filter may require a change anywhere between 50,000 and 100,000 miles, depending on the conditions you regularly drive in and your specific vehicle’s needs.

Since transmission maintenance requirements can vary, be sure to check your Owner’s Manual to review your vehicle’s specifications.
