Here’s Why 2009 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Honda Ridgeline to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Ridgeline could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

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. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your Ridgeline running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2009 Honda Ridgeline problems later.

A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2009 Honda Ridgeline? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years.

Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Ridgeline could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2009 Ridgeline in the chart at the top of this page.

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 2009 Honda Ridgeline.

  • When should I have Honda Ridgeline alignment checked? You know your Honda Ridgeline 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 switch my Honda Ridgeline to high mileage oil? If your Honda Ridgeline has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Honda Ridgeline in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
