Your Guide to 2012 Honda CR-Z Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda CR-Z to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your CR-Z could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get CR-Z maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Honda CR-Z!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. 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, 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your CR-Z running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2012 Honda CR-Z problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda CR-Z

Bring your 2012 Honda CR-Z to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 CR-Z. 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 2012 Honda CR-Z 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 CR-Z may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda CR-Z 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty CR-Z) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda CR-Z won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2012 Honda CR-Z's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 CR-Z. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 Honda CR-Z.

2012 Honda CR-Z Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Honda CR-Z. Get answers to common Honda CR-Z maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda CR-Z? 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. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda CR-Z? 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 CR-Z engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? 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-Z to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
