Hybrid vehicles are a little different than vehicles with a conventional engine, but most their service and maintenance needs are the same. Just like a conventional vehicle needs regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly, your Honda Accord Hybrid also has regular service needs that’ll allow you to enjoy all the benefits of the advanced technology under the hood.
We’ve taken the time to outline the Honda Accord Hybrid Maintenance schedule to make it a little easier on our customers in the Boca Raton, Greenacres, and Palm Beach areas.
Honda Accord Hybrid Maintenance Schedule Varies
To prevent the engine in the Honda Accord Hybrid from overheating and getting damaged, there are a few preventative maintenance items that should be taken care of regularly. The specific timing of these items can vary greatly depending on a variety of factors, including the age of the vehicle, quality of the materials used, driving conditions, and so forth.
That’s why the Accord Hybrid, along with many in the Honda lineup, is equipped with the Maintenance Minder System. This system takes the guesswork out of your maintenance schedule and lets you know when your vehicle needs services like an oil change or parking brake adjustment.
You’ll know when it’s time to get these services because you’ll see a dashboard message that says “Maintenance Due Now” or “Maintenance Due Soon,” along with a short numeric and alphabetic code. But what does the code mean? Here are a few common answers to that question:
If you see an “A” under “Maintenance Due Now,” it means your vehicle needs a simple oil change. This service should be done at least every six months and in alternation with the service below.
If you see a “B” under “Maintenance Due Now,” it’s time for a larger oil change service. In addition to the engine oil replacement, the vehicle will also get a thorough inspection for major systems like the brakes and exhaust system, as well as all the other fluids.
If you see a number beside the letter under “Maintenance Due Now,” you’ll want to take a gander through the list below and schedule the necessary service during your maintenance appointment:
- Tire Rotation
- Air Cleaner/Dust and Pollen Filter Replacement
- Transmission Fluid Replacement
- Spark Plug Replacement/Valve Clearance Inspection
- Engine Coolant Replacement
