Your family needs a dependable vehicle that rides smoothly through Miami, Doral, and Hialeah. That’s why you chose a Honda Odyssey. But like all cars, the reliable performance of your Odyssey can decrease with time. So what can do you to ensure a long, healthy life for your car? Just stay on top of its maintenance schedule.
To help you do that, Braman Honda in Miami is giving you everything you need to know about the Honda Odyssey maintenance schedule in the guide below.
When to Schedule Service Appointments
Your Honda Odyssey will need to be serviced every 7,500 miles. During these appointments, technicians will perform the minor maintenance tasks needed to maintain your car’s health, such as multi-point inspections, tire rotations, and oil changes.
As your vehicle adds more miles to the odometer, additional services will be required to maintain its impressive performance. Below is a list of services that you’ll need to schedule and when they should be performed.
Every 15,000 Miles
Every 15,000 miles, your vehicle will need to have its engine oil filter replaced. Its brakes and parking brake adjustments must also be checked. On top of that, technicians will have to visually inspect the following parts for damage or issues:
- Tie-rod ends
- Steering gear box and boots
- Driveshaft boots
- Suspension components
- Brake hose and lines
- Fluid levels and condition
- Cooling system hoses and connections
Every 30,000 Miles
In addition to the services listed above, you need to have the air cleaner element as well as the spark plugs replaced in your Honda Odyssey every 30,000 miles. The drive belts will need to be inspected and adjusted during these appointments too.
Every 45,000 Miles
Every 45,000 miles, your Honda Odyssey will only need a few additional services on top of everything listed above. At these appointments, the technician will replace the engine coolant and the brake fluid on top of the items listed for the 15,000-mile appointments.
Appointments for Single Services
The following services will only need to be performed once or twice throughout the life span of your Honda Odyssey:
- Replace transmission fluid at/every 90,000 miles.
