Recommended Service Intervals

Service Interval Information

How Often Do I Service My Car?

You want your Honda to run at the optimal performance level? Make sure you do not neglect regular servicing. Below are some general guidelines for vehicle maintenance.

Please remember that service interval recommendations vary between vehicle models and even between different years of the same Honda model. Always refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for Honda recommended service intervals.

15,000-Mile Service

Recommended Oil ChangeYour Honda probably needs its first appointment with your mechanic or the Honda dealership service center at 15,000 miles. At this interval you’ll want to change your oil, rotate your tires, and have the air filter replaced. The mechanic should also inspect all the key systems that keep your vehicle running smoothly, including the brakes and the cooling system. If you’re not happy with your vehicle’s fuel performance, you may want to have your mechanic check for a clogged fuel filter as well.

  • Oil Change - Drained and Replaced
  • Check All Fluid Levels - Top Up as Needed
  • Tires Rotated and Balanced
  • Check Air Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 30,000-Mile Service

    Tire Rotation IntervalsIf your fuel filter wasn’t already replaced at 15,000 miles, you’ll probably want to have it replaced at 30,000. You’ll also want the service team to replace your transmission fluid, thoroughly inspect all the main systems (including a re-inspection of the brakes and cooling system), and check the spark plugs, depending on the kind of spark plugs your vehicle uses.

  • Check Brake Pads - Replace as Needed
  • Suspension and Shock Check
  • Check Fuel Filter - Replace as Needed
  • 60,000-Mile Service

    Your Honda is likely to be due for all-new belts, hoses, and valves at 60,000 miles. This is also the time when many car batteries need to be replaced. Your service team will probably recommend flushing your cooling system and replacing the coolant. If you haven’t yet had your brake shoes and brake pads replaced, have your service team look into these as well.

  • Many of the Same Services from 30,000 Mile Interval
  • Replace Battery as Needed
  • Inspect Brake Rotors - Replace as Needed
  • Check for Wear on Belts and Hoses - Replace as Needed
  • 90,000-Mile Service

    If you haven’t already, you’ll want to have your mechanic replace your power steering fluid by the time your vehicle has 90,000 miles on it. Have the ignition system of your Honda checked, especially if your vehicle has trouble starting, runs roughly, or has the “check engine” light lit up.

  • Many of the Same Services from 60,000 Mile Interval
  • Top to Bottom Inspection
  • Check Spark Plugs - Replace as Needed
  • Inspect Vehicle Safety Technology Features
  • Having your Honda serviced regularly will help keep it running smoothly, with maximum efficiency, at 90,000 miles and beyond.
