When it comes to your Honda Civic del Sol, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Civic del Sol could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Civic del Sol maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1997 Honda Civic del Sol!
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. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 Civic del Sol running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1997 Honda Civic del Sol problems later.
Bring your 1997 Honda Civic del Sol 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Civic del Sol's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1997 Honda Civic del Sol? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 Civic del Sol battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda Civic del Sol won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
