We encourage our customers to keep up with regular maintenance on their cars, trucks, and SUVs. Whether that means you bring your vehicle to us or you do the maintenance at home, we just want it done and done right. That’s why we offer rotating service specials to make it convenient and affordable to maintain your Honda. Here are some helpful tips on regular maintenance to help you keep your Honda running in tip-top condition.
Your vehicle needs regular oil changes. Every mile you drive wears down the viscosity (its ability to lubricate) of your engine’s oil. As the oil’s viscosity drops, your engine’s protection against the high heat weakens. Ignoring your engine oil can lead to much more expensive repairs to your engine, perhaps even engine replacement.
Every car has a different recommended mileage for changing the engine oil. Most mechanics say you should change the oil between 3,000 and 6,000 miles. However, many late-model Hondas have recommended intervals of 10,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual for your model’s suggested miles. Once you understand your vehicle’s interval, you can shop our service specials for deals on oil changes. We offer great prices for conventional and synthetic oil and filter changes every month.
If you plan on changing your engine oil at home, we recommend using genuine Honda oil and filters. You can order these from our parts department online, and we’ll have them ready for you when you arrive.
Rotating your car’s tires can save you money by extending the life of your tires. Load and driving dynamics differ from the front and rear axles. The front axle must steer and brake while the rear axle only brakes. In addition, front-wheel drive and rear-wheel-drive models add the stress of acceleration to the respective tires. These varying conditions result in uneven wear, so by rotating your tires, you’re spreading out the amount of wear evenly. Ultimately, your tires will last longer.
Doing this at home requires the proper tools and equipment. Since you probably don’t have a hydraulic lift to raise your entire vehicle, you’ll need jack stands to hold your car up while you remove and rotate your tires. We recommend you rotate your tires every other oil change or around 10,000-12,000 miles.
If you’d rather enjoy a cup of coffee in our lounge while our technicians handle this service, you can schedule a tire rotation online. In most cases, our service center can change your oil and rotate your tires in less than 30 minutes. In addition, you’ll save money with our monthly tire rotation service specials.
Your brakes have a tremendous responsibility to keep your car under control and bring it to a stop, sometimes quickly. Yet, your brake pads wear out over time due to the friction created during braking. If you hear squeaking or squealing noises while braking, have your brake system inspected immediately. Our technicians can quickly identify the issue. It could be your pads are worn or something more severe with your calipers or master cylinder.
Your brakes should be inspected every 10,000-15,000 miles to ensure safe operation. If you choose to do this at home, we suggest using genuine Honda parts, which you can easily order online. If you’d rather, you can have our technicians inspect your brakes during your next oil change and tire rotation. It takes less time to inspect while we rotate tires than a brake inspection alone. In addition, you can take advantage of one of our brake inspection service specials and save money and time.
Your car’s steering depends on properly aligned wheels within the steering and suspension system. Wheel alignments require special equipment that lets our technicians precisely place your wheels on the front and rear. If you experience a drift to either side when you drive straight, you probably need an alignment or you might have a problem with your steering or suspension.
You can schedule a wheel alignment with our service center. One of our factory-trained technicians will assess your car’s alignment. Then, they’ll make the proper adjustments quickly and for much less money than you might expect, especially if you use one of our monthly coupons.
Whether you need to replace a flat tire or it’s time to swap out all four, our tire department has the tires in stock and the know-how to complete the job. We offer monthly coupons to save you money when purchasing new tires, so check back often for the latest deals. It’s essential to have your tires balanced to extend their life. We balance your tire by attaching small weights to the rim, which eliminates rotational wobble.
Excessive wobble leads to uneven wear, so never put a new tire on a wheel without having it balanced. We also recommend having your wheels aligned when you replace your tires. It costs less than $20 to have your tire balanced and less than $100 to perform an alignment. Many new tires cost hundreds of dollars each, so protect that investment and have them balanced and aligned.
At Performance Honda, we know the importance of regular maintenance. That’s why our service center technicians receive ongoing factory training to maintain and repair every part of your vehicle. By completing regular maintenance at the recommended intervals, you’ll prolong the life of your car and reduce the overall expense of potential repairs.
Our service center specials change monthly, so we encourage you to check our service specials page often. You’ll find discounts for everything from oil and filter changes to fluid exchanges or free car rentals for a day. Of course, if you like maintaining your vehicle at home, we appreciate that too. Just know that we’re here to help if you have questions or need parts. Call us today at (513) 829-6900.
