Inspection and Maintenance

For your safety, perform all listed inspections and maintenance to keep your vehicle in good condition. If you become aware of any abnormality (noise, smell, insufficient brake fluid, oil residue on the ground, etc.), have your vehicle inspected by a dealer.

(Note, however, that service at a dealer is not mandatory to keep your warranties in effect.) Refer to the separate maintenance booklet for detailed maintenance and inspection information.

■Types of Inspection and Maintenance

■ Daily inspections
Perform inspections before long distance trips, when washing the vehicle, or when refueling.

■ Periodic inspections
• Check the brake fluid level monthly.
• Check the tire pressure monthly. Examine the tread for wear and foreign objects.
• Check the operation of the exterior lights monthly.
• Check the condition of the wiper blades at least every six months.

U.S. models

Maintenance, replacement, or repair of emissions control devices and systems may be done by any automotive repair establishment or individuals using parts that are “certified” to EPA standards.

According to state and federal regulations, failure to perform maintenance on the maintenance main items marked with # will not void your emissions warranties. However, all maintenance services should be performed in accordance with the intervals indicated by the multi-information display.

If you want to perform complex maintenance tasks that require more skills and tools, you can purchase a subscription to the Service Express website at www.techinfo.honda.com.

If you want to perform maintenance yourself, make sure that you have the necessary tools and skills first.

After performing maintenance, update the records in the separate maintenance booklet.
