How often should I service my 2011 Honda Pilot?

Here’s Why 2011 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Pilot to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Pilot could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Pilot, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2011 Honda Pilot!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 Pilot running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Honda Pilot problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Pilot Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Honda Pilot 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Pilot. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Honda Pilot. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Pilot may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Pilot battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2011 Honda Pilot running newer, longer. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 Pilot, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Honda Pilot? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Pilot steering and suspension 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Honda Pilot suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut 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. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2011 Honda Pilot maintenance and repairs.

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

2011 Honda Pilot Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2011 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? You know your Honda Pilot 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 use high mileage oil in my Honda Pilot? 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 Pilot engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? 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
