How often should I service my 2021 Honda Ridgeline?

Your Guide to 2021 Honda Ridgeline Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Honda Ridgeline and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Just follow your 2021 Honda Ridgeline maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Honda, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your Ridgeline's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2021 Honda Ridgeline problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Honda Ridgeline

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 Honda Ridgeline for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2021 Honda Ridgeline? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Ridgeline may need a replacement battery sooner. 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! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Honda Ridgeline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Honda Ridgeline engine. See Honda's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2021 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2021 Honda Ridgeline.

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!). 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Honda Ridgeline engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Honda Ridgeline radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2021 Honda Ridgeline maintenance.

  • When should I have Honda Ridgeline alignment checked? 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? 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.
  •  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
