What to Know About 2002 Honda Insight Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda Insight to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Insight. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get Insight maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2002 Honda Insight!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 Insight's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2002 Honda Insight problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Insight Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2002 Honda Insight and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Insight’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2002 Honda Insight 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Insight battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda Insight 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 help your 2002 Honda Insight's engine run smoother. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2002 Insight, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2002 Honda Insight? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Insight can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger.

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Insight's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Insight services, 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 Insight cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Honda Insight radiator?

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Insight? 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 should I switch my Honda Insight to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Insight? 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? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Insight in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
