Overview of Essential Honda CR-V Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2012 Honda CR-V 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. 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.

Could your 2012 Honda CR-V be ready for a new battery? 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda CR-V battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your CR-V stranded. Your Honda CR-V won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2012 Honda CR-V running newer, longer. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 CR-V, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Honda CR-V.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda CR-V 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! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda CR-V 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. Components within your Honda CR-V's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda CR-V maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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. Need a new Honda CR-V radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2012 Honda CR-V maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda CR-V? 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.

  • When does my Honda CR-V need high mileage oil? 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Honda CR-V to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
