What to Know About 2018 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Ridgeline and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your Ridgeline. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Ridgeline maintenance. Just follow your 2018 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. 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 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 prevent common 2018 Honda Ridgeline problems.

Overview of Essential Honda Ridgeline Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Honda Ridgeline to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Ridgeline. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2018 Honda Ridgeline be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Ridgeline may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Honda Ridgeline battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 Honda Ridgeline engine. To learn how often Honda recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 Ridgeline, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2018 Honda Ridgeline? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Honda Ridgeline steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. 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, 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Honda Ridgeline's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Ridgeline services, 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 Ridgeline cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Honda Ridgeline radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Honda Ridgeline maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 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 switch my Honda Ridgeline to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Honda Ridgeline? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Honda? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Honda Ridgeline to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
