If you drive a GMC Sierra 1500, you’ll typically want to come in every 7 to 8 months, so we can take a look at your truck and perform some essential services. There are a total of 20 service milestones at intervals of 7,500 miles each, which is the interval that most automakers use to demarcate maintenance appointments. Your owner’s manual will give you all the details, but we’ve put together a quick guide outlining the basics of the GMC Sierra 1500 maintenance schedule below. Check it out, and feel free to contact us with any questions!
