Getting routine car maintenance done is like getting your teeth cleaned at the dentist’s, or going to the doctor for a checkup. All three can be annoying, and it might be tempting to just keep putting them off for another few weeks. But whether we’re talking about your car or your health, taking care of the routine stuff on a regular schedule is the best way to prevent more painful and expensive problems later on. So, if your new car is running smoothly and problem-free, how often should you plan on stopping by the service center for a checkup and a quick oil change? Here’s a quick overview.

Changing your oil and rotating your tires are the two most important maintenance routines. According to the recommended maintenance schedule for a new Honda, both of these are due every year or every 7,500 miles, whichever comes first. If you combine the two, we’ll throw in a free battery check, too!

At your car’s next major service, we’ll do the whole checkup again, plus a few more important items. Spark plugs usually start to wear out around 30,000 miles, so we’ll check those and replace them if necessary. We also recommend getting a brake flush and a coolant flush every 3 years.

Just keep coming back for a checkup every 15,000 miles or so, and your new Honda will stay happy and healthy for many years to come!

    What about the very first oil change? Same rules apply or not? I keep seeing “consult the owners manual” but it says nothing about when to do the first change.

    Getting routine car maintenance not only give your car better look but also enhance the performance of the car. When it comes to servicing of your car first you should change its oil. According to recommended by the manufacturer or the car expert you should take your car to a reputed car servicing center to get better service thus your vehicle may perform well on the road. Changing of oil in every 7,500 miles or once in a year gives more effective result than previous.

    Oil change is the key maintenance that every vehicle needs at a regular interval to ensure extended lifespan. Oil change has diversified impacts on the vehicle. It has positive impacts on the fuel economy of the vehicle and also absorbs considerably large amount of heat generated by the engine and hence plays a key role in the cooling of the engine. Apart from this proper research should be conducted to choose a best servicing center for the vehicle.
