What to Know About 2012 Honda Crosstour Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Honda Crosstour, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Crosstour could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 Crosstour maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2012 Honda Crosstour!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Crosstour perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2012 Honda Crosstour problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Crosstour Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Honda Crosstour to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Crosstour'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 2012 Honda Crosstour. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Crosstour 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. 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 Crosstour 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 prevent premature wear on your 2012 Honda Crosstour engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2012 Crosstour, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Honda Crosstour.

Maintaining your Honda Crosstour 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. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Crosstour 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Crosstour's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Crosstour maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally!

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Honda Crosstour’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

2012 Honda Crosstour Maintenance Q&A

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

  • When should I have Honda Crosstour alignment checked? You know your Honda Crosstour 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 does my Honda Crosstour need 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 Crosstour engines.
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Crosstour, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
