investment. This section describes the

required maintenance for the vehicle.

Follow this schedule to help protect against major repair expenses

resulting from neglect or inadequate maintenance. It may also help to

maintain the value of the vehicle if it is sold. It is the responsibility of the owner to have all required

maintenance performed.

Your dealer has trained technicians who can perform required

maintenance using genuine

replacement parts. They have

up-to-date tools and equipment for fast and accurate diagnostics. Many dealers have extended evening and Saturday hours, courtesy

transportation, and online scheduling to assist with service needs.

Your dealer recognizes the importance of providing competitively priced

maintenance and repair services. With trained technicians, the dealer is the

place for routine maintenance such as oil changes and tire rotations and




additional maintenance items like tires, brakes, batteries, and wiper blades.


Damage caused by improper

maintenance can lead to costly

repairs and may not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Maintenance intervals, checks, inspections,

recommended fluids, and lubricants are important to keep the vehicle in good working condition.

Do not have chemical flushes that are not approved by GM performed on the vehicle. The use of flushes,

solvents, cleaners, or lubricants that are not approved by GM could

damage the vehicle, requiring expensive repairs that are not

covered by the vehicle warranty.

The Tire Rotation and Required

Services are the responsibility of the vehicle owner. It is recommended to have your dealer perform these

services every 12 000 km/7,500 mi.

Proper vehicle maintenance helps to


keep the vehicle in good working

condition, improves fuel economy, and reduces vehicle emissions.
