Here’s Why 2009 Honda Accord Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Honda Accord, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Accord maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 Honda Accord!

Honda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Accord's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2009 Honda Accord problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Accord Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2009 Honda Accord to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Accord’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 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. 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 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2009 Honda Accord's engine run smoother. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Accord in the chart at the top of this page. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2009 Honda Accord.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Accord can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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.

Without routine Honda Accord maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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. Is your Honda Accord radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Honda Accord maintenance.

2009 Honda Accord Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Honda Accord. Get answers to common Honda Accord maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 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.
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? 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.
