Schedule Service

After you drive off the Bob Boyte Honda lot in a new Honda, it’s in your best interest to bring your vehicle in to our service center at regular intervals. Be sure to keep tabs on important maintenance services from regular oil changes and tire alignments to more extensive services like transmission and battery checks. Take a look at when to get these important services as well as a variety of others, and rely on our service department to keep your vehicle running smoothly on the streets of Brandon for longer.

Every 3,000 to 6,000 Miles

You’ll want to take care of the following routine maintenance procedures regularly to keep your vehicle in good condition:

  • Change engine oil and filter
  • Check coolant levels
  • Inspect windshield wiper blades
  • Get tires rotated

60,000 to 90,000 Miles

Once your car has been driving the streets of Clinton for some time, you’ll want to do the following maintenance:

  • Check the timing belt
  • Replace coolant/antifreeze
  • Change your Honda battery (depending on factors like weather and wear/tear, they typically last around 3-5 years)

Occasional Repairs/Replacements

You might have noticed we didn’t cover your brakes in there. That’s because the frequency of your tire rotations, the type of driving you do, and the type of brakes your vehicle has can greatly affect the wear and tear on your brake pads. It’s generally a good idea to check them out whenever you rotate your tires, and you could expect to replace them at 25,000 miles or even 65,000 miles — that’s why they warn you with the squeal when it’s time to change them.

Learn to Routinely Inspect Your Vehicle

While there’s no time stamp on the following, be sure to check the following every month or so to ensure that your car is in good condition:

  • Warning Lights – All should be in working order.
  • Tire Pressure – Keep a cheap tire air pressure gauge in your glove compartment.
  • Tire Tread – Put a penny in the groove of your tire (Lincoln’s head upside down). If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to change your tires.
  • Fluid Levels – Even if you don’t change your windshield wiper fluid, antifreeze, or coolant, be sure to check the levels and inspect for any leaks.

You’ll also want to stay up to date on maintenance by following your vehicle’s manual. Luckily, you can easily access just about any car manual online thanks to resources like Edmunds.
