What is the maintenance schedule for the 2020 Honda Ridgeline?

Your Guide to 2020 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Honda Ridgeline to last as long as possible. 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. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your Ridgeline, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2020 Honda Ridgeline!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2020 Honda Ridgeline problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Honda Ridgeline Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Honda Ridgeline for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty Ridgeline) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Honda Ridgeline won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2020 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 2020 Ridgeline. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2020 Honda Ridgeline? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Honda Ridgeline can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! 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. Components within your Honda Ridgeline's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Honda Ridgeline services, 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. Need a new Honda Ridgeline radiator? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2020 Honda Ridgeline maintenance and repairs.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.
