Honda has a recommended maintenance schedule to help drivers know when it’s time to have certain services performed. Keeping up to date with service and routine maintenance can keep your Honda healthy and running at its best. The schedule is broken down into three categories of service items: A, B, and C. Items in group A need to be performed the most often, while those in group C can go for longer stretches before replacements are needed.

Group A

Group A includes replacing the engine oil and rotating the tires. These service items need to be performed with some frequency in order to maintain optimal performance. The Honda maintenance schedule recommends that drivers do the items in group A after 7,5000 miles.

Group B

At the 15,000-mile mark or after one year’s time, whichever comes fist, the maintenance schedule recommends that drivers again repeat the items in group A as well as group B. Group B recommends having the following items checked, replaced, or serviced:

  • Replace engine oil filter.
  • Inspect front and rear brakes.
  • Check parking brake adjustment.
  • Inspect tie rod ends, steering gearbox, and boots.
  • Inspect suspension components.
  • Inspect driveshaft boots.
  • Inspect brake hoses and lines.
  • Check all fluid levels and condition of fluids; check for leaks.
  • Inspect cooling system hoses and connections.
  • Inspect exhaust system.
  • Inspect fuel lines and connections.

Group C

Before drivers get to group C, they’ll need to repeat group A again, at 22,500 miles. At the 30,000-mile mark or after two years, whichever comes first, drivers will need to once again repeat group A, along with group B. This time they will also add the items in group C, which include:

  • Replace air cleaner element.
  • Replace spark plugs.
  • Inspect and adjust drive belts.

The Importance of Service

The schedule repeats and continues from there in the same pattern—group A; then A and B; then A alone; then A, B, and C together in the recommended time frame and mileage usage. Following the service schedule and keeping up to date with regular routine maintenance is vital to the health of your vehicle and can prevent unexpected breakdowns, dramatic value deprecation due to neglect, or expensive mechanical problems that could have been avoided.
