Your Guide to 2011 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Ridgeline and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your Ridgeline could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 Ridgeline, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2011 Honda Ridgeline maintenance schedule!

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 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 Ridgeline running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2011 Honda Ridgeline problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Ridgeline Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2011 Honda Ridgeline to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing 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 Ridgeline's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2011 Honda Ridgeline be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Ridgeline stranded. Your Honda Ridgeline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2011 Ridgeline 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Honda Ridgeline? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Ridgeline can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Honda Ridgeline 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 Ridgeline's steering and suspension system.

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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Honda Ridgeline cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Ridgeline radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2011 Honda Ridgeline maintenance.

Questions About 2011 Honda Ridgeline Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2011 Honda Ridgeline. Get answers to common Honda Ridgeline maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Honda Ridgeline? 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 use high mileage oil in my Honda Ridgeline? 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!
  •  Why are my Honda dashboard lights on? 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 Ridgeline, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
