Why Is Honda Accord Maintenance Important?

Honda Accord

Like every vehicle, your Honda Accord needs some extra TLC from time to time. When you keep up with your maintenance schedule, you can rest easy knowing that the most vital parts under the hood are working as they should and are helping your Accord to perform at its best. Keeping up with maintenance ensures that your vehicle is being examined by an expert on a regular basis. It helps keep the most important parts of your vehicle in quality condition so you can have confidence in your ride.

What happens when you miss a maintenance appointment? Over time, the equipment that works so hard to make your Accord run, won’t perform as it should. This can lead to poor performance, diminished fuel economy, and even system failures.

That’s why it’s crucial to know your Honda Accord maintenance schedule and make appointments when recommended. Luckily, the Accord makes it easy with its handy Maintenance Minder tool.

Honda Accord Maintenance Minder

Honda Maintenance Minder is a feature in your Accord that continually keeps an eye on your vehicle’s performance and how you drive. Depending on where and how you drive, and the condition of your model, it’ll let you know when it’s time for your next maintenance appointment.

A Maintenance Minder code will appear on your dashboard to indicate what service your Accord requires. When you see any of the following codes, make sure to schedule an appointment with the professionals in our service center.

Main Item Codes:

  • A: Replace engine oil and oil filter
  • B: Replace engine oil and oil filter and inspect the following:
    • Front and rear brakes
    • Tie-rod ends, steering gearbox, and gearbox boots
    • Suspension components
    • Driveshaft boots
    • Brake hoses and lines
    • All fluid levels (and the condition of fluids)
    • Exhaust system
    • Fuel lines and connections

Maintenance Subcodes

  • 1: Rotate tires
  • 2: Replace air cleaner element, replace dust and pollen filter, and inspect drive belt
  • 3: Replace transmission fluid
  • 4: Replace spark plugs and inspect valve clearance
  • 5: Replace engine coolant
  • 7: Replace brake fluid

Having knowledge of some of the main codes that can appear on your vehicle can help you have some information before you visit our service center. This can allow you to give our technicians some guidelines as to where your greatest area of need is and can help cut down on the time it takes to get your vehicle repaired.

General Accord Maintenance Schedule

Oil Change

While Maintenance Minder codes tend to appear around every 6,000 miles, it’s still important to know when your Honda Accord requires maintenance. With this generalized maintenance schedule, you can plan for the future and keep your Honda Accord on the road where it belongs:

  • Every 5,000 to 7,500 Miles: At this visit, your Accord will receive fresh oil and a new oil filter. Other fluids, like your transmission, power steering, windshield wiper, and coolant, will also be inspected. A quick check of your tires will be performed as well.
  • Every 15,000 to 30,000 Miles: Your model’s air filter should be changed every 15,000 miles, while at the 20,000-mile milestone, you can expect a new fuel filter. Reach 30,000 miles? Then it’s time to replace the power steering fluid. Your HVAC system, brake pads, and radiator hoses will be inspected, too.
  • Every 35,000 to 50,000 Miles: At the 35,000-mile mark, it’s smart to replace your battery. When you reach 40,000 miles, the spark plugs and their wiring will be replaced, while the ignition system and suspension will be assessed. These checks are recommended again when you reach 45,000 to 50,000 miles.
  • Every 60,000 Miles: When you see 60,000 miles on your odometer, it’s time to change your transmission fluid. A thorough inspection of your engine and other vital systems will also be performed during this visit.

Our Technicians Know Your Honda

It’s important to note that not all Honda Accord models are going to need maintenance at the same intervals. Maintenance visits greatly depend on a variety of factors, including your driving habits, the condition of your model, and what equipment is under the hood.

For example, those who drive in the city, compared to dustier, rural areas, may need maintenance less frequently. The certified service technicians in our service center know best. They’ll look at your Accord and assess what maintenance needs to be performed to ensure the health and safety of your sedan.

When it comes to service for your vehicle, you want a comprehensive approach that puts your needs first. We make sure you get the quality customer service you deserve and use our expertise to provide estimated timelines on when your vehicle’s repairs or maintenance will be completed.
