* In 2007, Honda introduced the maintenance minder system. For vehicles equipped with this system, these maintenance items should be scheduled when a notification is displayed. Please note that we still recommend servicing your vehicle at regular intervals to maintain optimum performance and to reduce the risk of mechanical breakdown.Maintenance Minder System:
Many Honda models are equipped with a consumer-friendly Maintenance Minder System that calculates the life of the engine oil, transmission fluid, air and micron filters, coolant, spark plugs, timing belt (if equipped) and rear differential fluid. Therefore, a mileage-based scheduled maintenance is no longer required as the Maintenance Minder System’s computer calculates the life span of the various items in the vehicle. Honda introduced this unique system in 2007.
The computer monitors the life of each item based on the vehicle’s driving conditions and the same will be displayed in the vehicle information gauges. The system will display the faster exhaustion of oil when the vehicle is driven at low temperatures during short outings or on higher temperature and rpm. Thus, you need not have to keep on glancing over your car manual all the time.
The Maintenance Minder System calculates the oil’s lifespan depending on the operating conditions of the engine. It starts with 100% with fresh oil and gradually comes down to 0%. Based on the oil life percentage, the maintenance minder system displays three different messages when you turn the ignition switch to ON.
