If you’re purchasing a new Honda car, truck or SUV, you already know that this brand has a reputation for manufacturing high-quality, reliable vehicles that endure. But just because your auto brand of choice makes top-notch cars doesn’t mean you can afford to be neglectful as a Honda owner. If you want to make sure your vehicle continues performing up to your standards and keeping you and your passengers safe out on the roads, regular maintenance is an extremely important step to add to your automotive regimen. Here at Pacific Honda, we’re pleased to inform you that we’re happy to help! Here’s how.
According to the Car Care Council, 25% of cars have low or dirty engine oil, 18% need new belts or have dirty air filters, and 17% have inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels. And yours just might be one of them! Frequent and regular service checkups should entail an investigation of your dashboard indicator lights, headlights, tire inflation and condition and engine oil level. Longer service intervals will vary depending on your car model, but as a general rule of thumb, a professional should inspect your automatic transmission fluid, battery, belts, air filter, oil, exhaust and power steering fluid every three months or 3,000 miles. Every six months or 6,000 miles, the list should include chassis lubrication and wiper blades. Every year or 12,000 miles, you should add air filters, coolant, steering, suspension and wheel alignment to the list.
Our Honda service center offers a wide variety of resources for the convenience of our busy customers. Scheduling regular maintenance for your Honda vehicle doesn’t have to be a hassle—in fact, you can make your service appointment online right here on our website and order new Honda parts from the web if you’d rather save yourself an in-person stop.
