2021 Honda Civic Maintenance Schedule

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2021 Honda Civic?

Here’s Why 2021 Honda Civic Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda Civic and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your Civic has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2021 Honda Civic!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Civic's life, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2021 Honda Civic problems later.

Overview of Essential Honda Civic Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Honda Civic and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 2021 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Honda Civic running newer, longer. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 Civic, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 Honda Civic.

Maintaining your Honda Civic steering and suspension 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! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, 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. Components within your Honda Civic's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Civic services, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Honda Civic engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Honda Civic radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.

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

2021 Honda Civic Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 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? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2021 Civic is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I switch my Honda Civic to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Honda Civic engines.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Civic in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
