Your Guide to 2013 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Pilot and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Pilot. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get Pilot maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Honda Pilot!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Honda Pilot problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Honda Pilot Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2013 Honda Pilot for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Honda Pilot. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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 Pilot battery. 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Pilot stranded. Your Honda Pilot 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 2013 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 2013 Pilot. 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Honda Pilot.

Maintaining your Honda Pilot steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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 fall behind on routine Honda Pilot maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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.

2013 Honda Pilot Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 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? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 Pilot is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda Pilot? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Pilot? 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 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
