What to Know About 2018 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Pilot and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Pilot has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Pilot, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2018 Honda Pilot maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Honda themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Pilot's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2018 Honda Pilot problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Pilot

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2018 Honda Pilot 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Honda Pilot? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Pilot 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Pilot stranded. Your Honda Pilot won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Honda Pilot engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 Pilot 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Honda Pilot? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Pilot can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Honda Pilot 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Pilot's steering system with regular maintenance.

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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Pilot cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Honda Pilot? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Honda Pilot maintenance.

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

Questions About 2018 Honda Pilot Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Honda Pilot. Get answers to common Honda Pilot maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Pilot? 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 should I switch my Honda Pilot to high mileage oil? 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.
  •  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 Pilot to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
