While your new or new-to-you Honda vehicle may be tricked out with top-of-the-line amenities, all vehicles are still in need of regular service to sustain them in their optimal condition. Of course, the most important type of maintenance is the preventative kind. Contrarily when small issues go undiagnosed, they can lead to larger issues in the future. Knowing the right solution for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions we receive about Nashville Honda maintenance.
Computerized dashboards are standard features in most modern vehicles. These include indicators and sensors to help drivers manage vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light has come on include missing gas cap, or even low tire pressure. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easy to read by a diagnostic machine.
While many auto mechanics swear by the 3,000-7,000 mile or 3-month oil-change rule, this may or may not be true of your make and model. Our first suggestion is always to check your auto user manual. This provides you with the most accurate information available, especially for newer models. Unfortunately, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to vehicle wear, history, and age. This more complete recommendation requires an expert. If your mechanic is unsure, then call your Honda dealer for the best advice.
A car's chief point of contact with the pavement is its tires. This causes excessive wear and tear that must be distributed evenly between all the tires. After 6,000 to 8,000 miles, tire rotation is highly advised. Rotation guarantees that your tires wear evenly. Plus, be sure to note that 4WD and off-roading, as well as individual driving habits, may dramatically influence your tire rotation interval and frequency, outside of a standard Honda tire rotation schedule.
The working life of a brake pad depends on your typical driving habits and decidedly, the operating environment. Based on moderate to heavy usage, brake pads are typically designed to last through 20,000-25,000 miles. Factors that will significantly reduce its life are frequent braking, high-speed braking, temperature elevation and driving on rocky terrain and uneven areas. On average, brake pads are designed to provide from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life in normal driving conditions.
A clean fuel filter is essential for trouble-free and optimal engine performance. Always consult your Honda mechanic or automakers' manual, but fuel filters typically last between 20,000-40,000 miles.
Although there are various reasons why your Honda won't start, the most obvious reason may be your car's battery. For example, if you somehow managed to leave your lights on, then it's reasonable to assume that the charge is drained. One sign of a low charge is if it takes longer to start the engine when you turn the key. Of course, there may be other reasons why your Honda won't start, so it's always best to consult a certified Honda mechanic.

Every scheduled auto maintenance appointment should come with a standard inspection. A licensed Honda mechanic will conduct a thorough inspection for any required services. This is the best way to have your brakes checked, as brake quality is measured by size, look, and feel. Be sure to have squeaky brakes looked at, as it can be a symptom of a bigger issue.
The normal car battery will last between 3 to 5 years, depending on care and use. The easiest way to avoid a battery issue is to monitor the battery health of your vehicle. This usually occurs during a routine service check. Most car batteries, like other perishable goods, have a clearly marked expiration date.
