Scheduled Service and Maintenance on your Honda or Acura
When should your car have scheduled auto maintenance service?
Scheduled maintenance is typically based on the amount of miles driven as recommended by the vehicle manufacture. Honda and Acura recommend changing your oil when the “Service Due Soon” or the “Service Due Now” message appears.
Newer Hondas and Acuras are equipped with the Maintenance Minder function; it displays the engine motor oil life indicator or maintenance requirements at certain mileage intervals. This unique system allows you to avoid problems by evaluating how the car is driven, checking engine operating conditions, and other factors such as weather extremes, and if stop-and-start traffic is typical. The Maintenance Minder should also display a code or sub-code notifying you of other scheduled maintenance, these codes will be displayed on the instrument panel. Some maintenance items such as replacing the brake fluid may not be displayed by the Minder system, it is recommended the brake fluid be replaced every 3 years.
Don’t wait for the “Check Engine Light” to come on before you bring your car to Benders in Covina, CA. For “Your Road to Peace of Mind” bring your car into Benders Auto Care and we will determine the proper service required for your vehicle based on the manufactures guidelines and your mileage.
