Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your CR-V's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Honda CR-V problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda CR-V

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Honda CR-V for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your CR-V's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2009 Honda CR-V. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your CR-V may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 CR-V 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 CR-V could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2009 Honda CR-V engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 CR-V. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Honda CR-V? We can help with that, too!

Components within your Honda CR-V's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda CR-V 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 CR-V cooling, heating, and climate control system.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Honda CR-V. Get answers to common Honda CR-V maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda CR-V? You know your Honda CR-V 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 use high mileage oil in my Honda CR-V? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda CR-V? 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.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? 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 CR-V, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
