Honda Maintenance Minder

Keeping Up With Your Honda Maintenance Schedule is Easy With This System

In order to keep your Honda running in optimal shape, and to get the most years out of your vehicle, following the recommended maintenance schedule is a must. Fortunately, there aren’t any mileage-based Honda maintenance intervals to worry about — rather, your Honda will tell you when it needs service thanks to the Honda Maintenance Minder system!


What is Honda Maintenance Minder?

The heart of the Maintenance Minder system is an on-board computer that continuously monitors the functionality of your vehicle’s engine, taking into account factors such as engine temperature, speed, and the way you drive. Based on this date, it determines when maintenance — such as an oil change — is required.

Because of this, there’s no fixed maintenance schedule in your Honda owner’s manual. And because the system displays your vehicle’s oil life as a percentage, you won’t be surprised by the need for this basic maintenance.

Performing the various maintenance items at the recommended time will help prevent problems before they occur, saving you time, money, and hassle. Additionally, following these schedules will help keep your manufacturer’s warranty intact for the life of the warranty, and help maintain a high resale value.

OIL LIFE % MESSAGE WHAT TO DO
15% Service Due Soon Take your vehicle to your Honda dealer for service soon
5% Service Due Now Take your vehicle in for service as soon as possible
0% Service Past Due Your vehicle is overdue for an oil change. Take your vehicle in for service as soon as possible.
