Your Guide to 2006 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Honda Ridgeline, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline maintenance. Just follow your 2006 Honda Ridgeline maintenance schedule!

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; 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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Ridgeline's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Honda Ridgeline problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Ridgeline

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 Honda Ridgeline for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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 Ridgeline'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 Ridgeline? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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. 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 Ridgeline battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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 Ridgeline won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2006 Honda Ridgeline's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2006 Ridgeline. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Ridgeline 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. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Honda Ridgeline steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Ridgeline's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda Ridgeline maintenance, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Honda Ridgeline engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Honda Ridgeline radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2006 Honda Ridgeline maintenance.

Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your car. Visit your nearest location for proactive maintenance today.
