Here’s Why 2013 Honda Fit Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda Fit and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Fit has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Fit, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2013 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Fit's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Honda Fit problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Fit

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Honda Fit and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 2013 Honda Fit? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Fit may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Fit stranded. Your Honda Fit could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 2013 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 2013 Fit. 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2013 Honda Fit.

Maintaining your Honda Fit steering and suspension 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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Fit's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda Fit maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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. Need a new Honda Fit radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2013 Honda Fit maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 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? 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? 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
