Maintenance for Your 2009 Honda Fit

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2009 Honda Fit?

Here’s Why 2009 Honda Fit Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Fit to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Fit 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 Fit maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2009 Honda Fit 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. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Fit's life, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2009 Honda Fit problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Fit

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2009 Honda Fit for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Fit’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2009 Honda Fit be ready for a new battery? 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Fit 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fit stranded. Your Honda Fit 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 2009 Honda Fit's engine run smoother. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Fit in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Honda Fit? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Fit steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Honda Fit suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Fit's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Fit services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Honda Fit’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Honda Fit radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Honda Fit maintenance.

Questions About 2009 Honda Fit Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Honda Fit. Get answers to common Honda Fit maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda Fit? 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 does my Honda Fit need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Fit? 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.
  • 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 Fit, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
