What is the maintenance schedule for the 1989 Honda Civic?

Here’s Why 1989 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Honda Civic, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Civic. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Civic, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1989 Honda Civic!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Civic running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1989 Honda Civic problems later.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Honda Civic? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Civic battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Civic) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Civic won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
