Here’s Why 2012 Honda Fit Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Fit to last as long as possible. With proactive 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2012 Honda Fit!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. 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 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, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2012 Honda Fit problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Fit Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2012 Honda Fit to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Fit's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2012 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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.

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 Fit engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2012 Fit. 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2012 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. 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 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.

Without routine Honda Fit maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Fit cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Fit radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2012 Honda Fit maintenance.

2012 Honda Fit Maintenance Questions

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

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Fit? You know your Honda Fit 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 Fit 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 Fit 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 Fit, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
