Here’s Why 2016 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Civic to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Civic. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Civic maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Honda Civic!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Civic's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Honda Civic problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Honda Civic Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Honda Civic for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Civic. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2016 Honda Civic be ready for a new battery? 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). 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 battery. 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 Civic) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Civic won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2016 Honda Civic's engine run smoother. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 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 2016 Honda Civic? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Civic steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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, perform Honda Civic suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. 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 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!). 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Civic? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Honda Civic maintenance and repairs.

2016 Honda Civic Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Honda Civic. Get answers to common Honda Civic maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Civic? You know your Honda Civic 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 Civic to 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? 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
