Here’s Why 2012 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Civic to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Civic. 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 2012 Honda Civic!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 prevent common 2012 Honda Civic problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Civic Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Honda Civic to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Civic’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2012 Honda Civic be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Civic may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Civic 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Civic stranded. Your Honda Civic won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2012 Honda Civic's engine run smoother. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 Civic 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2012 Honda Civic? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Honda Civic suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Honda Civic 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Civic's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Civic maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Civic cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Honda Civic radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Honda Civic maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • When should I have Honda Civic alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2012 Civic is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Honda Civic need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Civic? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • 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
