Honda Pilot Maintenance Schedule
The Honda Pilot is a reliable midsize SUV that features enough room for the whole family. To make sure it’s ready to go and in good shape for all your family road trips, it’s important to take it in for maintenance every once in a while. When will your SUV need maintenance? To show drivers in Peoria, Glendale, and Sun City how often you’ll need to schedule a service appointment, Arrowhead Honda looks over the Honda Pilot maintenance schedule.
Every 7,500 Miles
Your SUV should stop by a Honda service center for maintenance every 7,500 miles. This will ensure that your Honda Pilot stays in good condition and that it’ll be well prepared for long-term use. Whether you’re driving a new SUV or just hit 75,000 miles in a used one, a service technician will perform the same basic maintenance.
First, you’ll get a simple oil change. This keeps your engine healthy and running well. Second, they’ll look over your SUV for signs of wear and tear, including checking how thick the brake pads are.
Next, they’ll check your air pressure and inspect the tread on your tires. If your tires are old and worn, they’ll need to be replaced. Most of the time though, your Honda Pilot will just need a routine tire rotation to make sure the tread wears evenly.
Every 15,000 Miles
After your SUV travels another 15,000 miles, you’ll need to get all the same maintenance as before, plus technicians will inspect more of your parts and systems. For example, last time they looked at how thick your brake pads were to see when to replace them. This time, they’ll look over the brake lines and parking brake too.
From there, they’ll also check the fuel lines, cooling system hoses, and exhaust system. After inspecting all the hoses and lines, they’ll look at parts like the driveshaft boots, steering gearbox, and suspension.
Every 30,000 Miles
All the maintenance that’s performed during your 7,500-mile visit and the inspections that take place every 15,000 miles will be done again whenever you add another 30,000 miles to your odometer. This trip to the service center brings all the previous ones together and adds a few more items to the technician’s check list.
For one, they’ll inspect each one of your drive belts. If any of them look worn out or loose, they’ll replace them with new ones. Your Pilot will also get a new air cleaner element, plus a new set of spark plugs.
Every Three Years
To make sure your brake system can slow your SUV down and bring it a complete stop every time, it’s a good idea to get new brake fluid put in your Honda Pilot every three years. This timeframe is recommended whether your drive 10,000 miles a year or take the bus to work and don’t drive much.
