We also offer many services, including oil changes, as express services to have a limited impact on your daily schedule.
Express Oil Change
The oil flowing through the passageways and bearings of your car's engine are its life's blood. One of the best ways to keep your engine running like new is to ensure you bring it into our service department as per the recommended times and mileages outlined in your owner's manual. You Honda Maintenance Schedule has been developed by the same engineers who designed your Honda. Every step in the schedule has been set at very specific intervals to ensure your Honda will provide you with a vehicle that will give you many years of flawless service.
According to the service schedule, the oil and filter should be changed every 7,500 miles or annually, whichever comes first. However, bear in mind that this schedule is based upon optimum operating conditions. For those who live in areas where summer temperatures are exceptionally high or there is a high level of dust and dirt in the air, more frequent changes should be completed. The same applies to those for whom the bulk of their driving involves short trips and slower speeds such as commuting.
These conditions typically require more frequent oil changes as they can cause the oil to become dirtier more quickly and break down, providing less protection for your engine and its components. Dirty oil that has lost its viscosity can and will cause significant damage to your engine and all of its moving components. You may want to consider increasing the frequency of your car's oil changes to 3,000 to 5,000 miles or every 3 months.
