What to Know About 2008 Honda Element Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Element and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Element 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 Element maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2008 Honda Element!

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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Element perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2008 Honda Element problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Element

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2008 Honda Element and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Element’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 Honda Element? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. 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 Element) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Element 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 help your 2008 Honda Element'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 2008 Element. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2008 Honda Element? We can help with that, too!

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!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Honda Element steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Element's steering system with regular maintenance.

Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.

  • When should I have Honda Element alignment checked? 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 switch my Honda Element to high mileage oil? If your Honda Element has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Honda dashboard warning lights wait? 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 Element to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
