Bringing your Honda in for seasonal spring maintenance helps to ensure that you get the most mileage out of your CR-V, Pilot, Accord, or other models. Spring is the perfect time to get your Honda in top shape for all your upcoming adventures throughout Montana and beyond. 

Seasonal care also helps to preserve the value and integrity of your vehicle. Each year, we recommend visiting your nearest Montana Honda Dealer for routine checkups.  

Spring Maintenance Checklist for Your Honda Car

Spring maintenance needs can vary depending on the condition of your car and how many miles you’ve put on the engine since its last service but here are some general service recommendations. 

  • Change Oil and Filters: Oil changes should be completed more than once a year but it’s never a bad idea to replace your oil when you can. Filter changes are also essential for preserving a clean running engine. 
  • Inspect Fluid Levels: Checking your fluids and changing your oil can basically be done at the same time. We recommend inspecting your power steering fluid, brake, transmission, windshield washer, and coolant fluids. From there you can flush, replace, and top off as needed. 
  • Tire Maintenance: Worn-out tires are dangerous on any road. Rotating your tires every few thousand miles helps to reduce tread wear and prevent the need for costly replacements. 
  • Replace Windshield Wiper Blades: Faulty wiper blades are something drivers never think about until they have to pull over on the side of the road due to a lack of vision. Replacing your wipers helps to keep you and your passengers safe. 
  • Test Your Battery: The winter months take a toll on your car’s battery. Spring is an ideal time to test your battery and guarantee that you’re ready for your next road trip. Batteries older than a few years may need to be replaced. 
  • Check Your Belts and Hoses: Cracked or slipped belts and hoses can be a hassle to deal with from the side of the road. A quick spring inspection can replace any potentially damaged parts and pieces. 
  • Test Your Lighting: A broken tail light might get you pulled over and faulty lighting can result in an accident. It takes little time to ensure that your lights can keep you safe while on the road.
