Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2011 Honda Fit

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2011 Honda Fit?

Here’s Why 2011 Honda Fit Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Honda Fit, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Fit. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Fit, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2011 Honda Fit!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Fit running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Honda Fit problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Honda Fit Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2011 Honda Fit to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Fit. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2011 Honda Fit? In general, car batteries only last 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 Fit battery. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2011 Honda Fit engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 Fit, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Honda Fit.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Fit suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Honda Fit 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda Fit's steering and suspension system.

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. 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 Fit engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What do I do if I hit 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 should I switch my Honda Fit to high mileage oil? If your Honda Fit 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Fit in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
