Oil Changes for 2020 Honda HR-V

How Often to Get 2020 Honda HR-V Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Honda HR-V’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2020 HR-V’s oil should be changed according to Honda’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Honda-recommended oil change intervals, your HR-V may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Honda if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Honda HR-V. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Honda HR-V Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2020 Honda HR-V motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Honda has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2020 Honda HR-V vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your HR-V’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your HR-V by considering your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2020 Honda HR-V Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Honda HR-V engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Honda HR-V engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Honda HR-V oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Honda exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
