Overview of Essential Honda Insight Maintenance Needs

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2004 Honda Insight? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Insight battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 Insight) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Insight could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2004 Honda Insight 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 2004 Insight. 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 2004 Honda Insight.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Insight can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Insight 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 Insight's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda Insight maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. 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.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2004 Honda Insight. Get answers to common Honda Insight maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Insight? You know your Honda Insight 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 switch my Honda Insight to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Honda Insight engines.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? 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 Insight to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
