Here’s Why 1996 Honda Passport Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Honda Passport, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Passport. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Passport maintenance. Just follow your 1996 Honda Passport maintenance schedule!

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. 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Passport running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Honda Passport problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Passport

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1996 Honda Passport for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Passport’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1996 Honda Passport be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Passport 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 Passport battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Passport stranded. Your Honda Passport 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 prevent premature wear on your 1996 Honda Passport engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1996 Passport in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1996 Honda Passport.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Passport suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Honda Passport steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Honda Passport's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda Passport maintenance, 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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Passport cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Passport radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 1996 Honda Passport maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1996 Honda Passport. Get answers to common Honda Passport maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Passport? You know your Honda Passport 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 does my Honda Passport need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Passport? 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.
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? 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 Passport, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
