How Do I Find My Car’s Service Intervals?
Your owner’s manual will have the best guideline for regular service intervals. As a general rule of thumb, your vehicle should be serviced every 12,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. This does not mean, however, that you only need to change your oil once a year. A yearly checkup is good for checking every component of your vehicle, but your vehicle’s specific owner’s manual will have a greater description of service needs and when each maintenance service should be performed.
How Often Should I Change My Oil?
If you drive a recent model year Honda Accord, you can change your oil every 7,500 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. However, if you drive an older Accord, you should air on the side of safety and have an oil change performed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.
Does Weather Affect My Oil Change Schedule?
As a matter of fact, yes! This is a lesser known fact, but things like hot temperatures, towing heavy gear, driving on dusty roads, or idling for long periods of time on a regular basis may mean you need to change your oil more often. If you drive an Accord, you’re probably not hauling trailers or off-roading on muddy and dusty trails, but you can always call our service center if you have any questions about your vehicle’s service needs.
