Recommended Maintenance Schedule For A New Honda
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!
After about a year of driving, your new Honda will be due for a more detailed checkup. A Honda Certified tech will make sure your brakes are in good shape, check your suspension and steering systems, and check and top up all your car’s fluids.
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!
