2021 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance

Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2021 Honda Pilot

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2021 Honda Pilot?

Here’s Why 2021 Honda Pilot Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Pilot to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Pilot. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Pilot, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2021 Honda Pilot!

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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Honda Pilot problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Pilot Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2021 Honda Pilot to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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 2021 Honda Pilot? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda Pilot won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2021 Honda Pilot running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2021 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 can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, 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 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. 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. Need a new Honda Pilot radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2021 Honda Pilot maintenance and repairs.
