Using Honda Maintenance Minder™ in the Honda CR-V

Be advised that road conditions and driving habits can have a significant impact on your vehicle’s performance and long-term health. That’s why every new Honda CR-V receives the Honda Maintenance Minder™ system, which tells you exactly when to schedule service!  So, rather than keeping track of your mileage, you can simply wait for the feature to display a maintenance code. Once every 7,500 miles or so, your system will give you a Main Code and a Sub Code. Check the list below to find out what’s required:

  • Main Code A
    • Replace the engine oil and oil filter
  • Main Code B
    • Replace engine oil and oil filter
    • Check the front and rear brakes
    • Inspect the gearbox and tie rod ends
    • Inspect suspension and driveshaft boots
    • Check condition and level of all fluids
    • Check brake hoses, brake lines, and fuel lines
  • Sub Code 1
    • Rotate your tires
  • Sub Code 2
    • Replace your air cleaner element
    • Replace your dust/pollen filter
    • Inspect your drive belt
