What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2013 Honda Ridgeline?

Here’s Why 2013 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. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Ridgeline, 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 2013 Honda Ridgeline!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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 Ridgeline's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Honda Ridgeline problems later.

Overview of Essential Honda Ridgeline Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Honda Ridgeline and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Ridgeline’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2013 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. 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, 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2013 Honda Ridgeline running newer, longer. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2013 Ridgeline in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2013 Honda Ridgeline.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Ridgeline can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Honda Ridgeline steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Honda Ridgeline's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Honda Ridgeline maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car.

  • When should I have Honda Ridgeline alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 Ridgeline is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Honda Ridgeline? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil.

  •  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.
