What to Know About 2006 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Accord and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Accord could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Accord, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Honda Accord!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Accord running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2006 Honda Accord problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Accord Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2006 Honda Accord to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Accord. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Honda Accord? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Accord may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Honda Accord battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Accord) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Accord could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2006 Honda Accord running newer, longer. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 Accord in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Honda Accord.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Accord can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Honda Accord suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda Accord's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Honda Accord services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Honda Accord’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Honda Accord radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2006 Honda Accord maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda Accord? You know your Honda Accord better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda Accord? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Honda Accord engines.
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Accord in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
