How often should I service my 2006 Honda Pilot?

Here’s Why 2006 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Honda Pilot and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Pilot has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 Pilot maintenance. Just follow your 2006 Honda Pilot maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Pilot running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2006 Honda Pilot problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Pilot Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2006 Honda Pilot to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Pilot's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Honda Pilot? In general, car batteries only last 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Honda Pilot 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty Pilot) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Pilot 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 prevent premature wear on your 2006 Honda Pilot engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2006 Pilot. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Honda Pilot.

Routine upkeep for your Honda Pilot suspension and steering system 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, provide Honda Pilot steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Honda Pilot's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Honda Pilot services, 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!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Honda Pilot’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Honda Pilot radiator? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2006 Honda Pilot maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

2006 Honda Pilot Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Honda Pilot. Get answers to common Honda Pilot maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Honda Pilot alignment checked? 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 does my Honda Pilot need high mileage oil? If your Honda Pilot has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  •  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 Pilot, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
