Here’s Why 2008 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda Accord and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Accord has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2008 Honda Accord!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Accord running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2008 Honda Accord problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Accord Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2008 Honda Accord to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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 2008 Honda Accord? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Accord battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Honda Accord engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 Accord. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2008 Honda Accord? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Accord steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Accord steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Honda Accord's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Accord maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Accord cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Accord? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.

Questions About 2008 Honda Accord Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2008 Honda Accord. Get answers to common Honda Accord maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Honda Accord alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Honda Accord to high mileage oil? 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.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Honda Accord to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
