What to Know About 2016 Honda Fit Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Fit and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Fit. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Fit maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2016 Honda Fit!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Fit perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2016 Honda Fit problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Fit

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Honda Fit for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Honda Fit. 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 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. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Honda Fit running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 Fit. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Honda Fit.

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! 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. Components within your Honda Fit's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda Fit maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Fit? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Honda Fit maintenance.

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

  • When should I have Honda Fit 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 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 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
