What to Know About 2008 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda Civic to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Civic has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Civic maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 Honda Civic!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Civic perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Honda Civic problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Civic Running Newer, Longer

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'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 2008 Honda Civic? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Civic 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2008 Honda Civic engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2008 Civic, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2008 Honda Civic.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Civic suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

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 Civic's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Civic maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 Civic’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

Questions About 2008 Honda Civic Maintenance

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

  • When should I have Honda Civic 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 Civic to high mileage oil? If your Honda Civic has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Honda Civic, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
