Your Guide to 2006 Honda Element Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda Element to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your Element could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Element maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2006 Honda Element maintenance schedule!

Honda knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 Element's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2006 Honda Element problems later.

Overview of Essential Honda Element Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2006 Honda Element and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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 Element'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 2006 Honda Element. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Element may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Element 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 Element won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Honda Element engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2006 Element. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Honda Element.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Element can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Element 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 Element's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Element maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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 Element engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
