Honda CR-V Maintenance Schedule
As the proud owner of a Honda CR-V, you’re going to want to follow the recommended maintenance schedule so you can enjoy years of reliable performance. But keeping track of all those month and mileage intervals can be pretty confusing. Lucky for you, and other drivers in the Santa Ana, Tustin, and Rancho Santa Margarita area, the Honda CR-V comes with a helpful maintenance minder system.
In this guide, our team at the Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Irvine will help you understand how this sophisticated system works so you can make sure you’re up-to-date on all of your Honda CR-V maintenance.
About the Honda CR-V Maintenance Minder
As stated previously, the Honda Civic maintenance schedule is your guide to the services it needs to maintain its performance. It lists each appointment you need to make as well as the times they need to be scheduled. Each recommended service appointment gives your Civic everything from an oil change to a battery inspection depending on your car’s age and how many miles it’s been driven. The Honda Civic maintenance schedule recommends you schedule in 7,500-mile or one-year increments, whatever comes first.
Honda CR-V Maintenance Main Items
Maintenance code A is probably one of the most common codes you’ll see on the vehicle’s MID. It indicates that it’s time to replace the engine oil. Meanwhile, maintenance code B adds on a new oil filter and a number of mandatory inspections. When you bring your Honda CR-V for service, your technician will be sure to look at the following:
- Brake Pads
- Parking Break
- Driveshaft Boots
- Suspension System
- Exhaust System
- Fuel lines
Honda CR-V Maintenance Subitems
Occasionally, the maintenance main items on the MID will be accompanied by a subitem code (represented by the numbers 1 to 6). Code 1 means that you’ll need to have the tires inspected for wear and rotated. Code 2 calls for a new air cleaner element and dust and pollen filter in addition to a close inspection of the drive belt and its auto-tensioner indicator.
If you see a maintenance code 3, then you’ll want to have the transmission fluid changed. Your Honda technician will know what type of transmission fluid to use to keep the Honda CR-V running properly. Maintenance code 4 indicates that new spark plugs are needed.
A code 5 means you should replace the coolant and code 6 means that you’ll need to change the rear differential fluid if your Honda CR-V is equipped with all-wheel drive.
Does My Honda CR-V Need Service?
If you see any of the Maintenance Minder codes listed above on the MID in your Honda CR-V, then the answer is a resounding yes. You should schedule a service appointment to receive the proper maintenance your Honda needs. Otherwise, you could risk potentially damaging your vehicle.
