Your Guide to 2018 Honda HR-V Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda HR-V and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your HR-V could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine HR-V maintenance. Just follow your 2018 Honda HR-V maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your HR-V's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Honda HR-V problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Honda HR-V Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Honda HR-V and our technicians will jump right in 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 HR-V. 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 2018 Honda HR-V? 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 HR-V 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 HR-V battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty HR-V) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda HR-V won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Honda HR-V 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 2018 HR-V. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Honda HR-V.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda HR-V can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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, perform Honda HR-V 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 HR-V's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Honda HR-V maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). 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 HR-V engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Honda HR-V radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Honda HR-V maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Honda HR-V. Get answers to common Honda HR-V maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Honda HR-V? You know your Honda HR-V 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 should I use high mileage oil in my Honda HR-V? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda HR-V? 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? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Honda HR-V to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
