Whether you own an Accord, Pilot, CRV, or any other Honda vehicle, you know that reliability is one of the brand’s best selling features. To maximize your vehicle’s lifespan performing regular maintenance is a must. In your owner’s manual, you’ll find a complete breakdown of when to bring your car in for service and what is traditional during that appointment – that way, you’ll know exactly what to expect when you visit the dealership. At Rapids Honda in Coon Rapids, MN, we only specialize in Honda vehicles, so our factory-trained technicians know your vehicle.
When you visit us for a 7,500-mile service appointment, you can expect your Honda to be treated with care and respect. Rest assured that we only use OEM certified parts for repairs and maintenance so you can feel confident in the work that is being performed. During the 7,500 mile service, we’ll start by doing an oil change on your car. One of our friendly and professional technicians will drain the oil from your vehicle, check for any extremities in it like particles or grime, and then replace it with fresh oil so that your engine is ready to last for years to come. In addition, while it doesn’t always need to be changed, we’ll check the filter during the oil change process to ensure it still has plenty of life left.
After doing an oil change, the next step in the 7,500-mile service is a tire rotation. Rotating the tires may not sound important, but every tire can wear differently, and the best way to ensure that your tires don’t need to be replaced too soon is to make sure they wear at the same rate. Additionally, depending on whether you have a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle, either the front or rear tires will wear far quicker because they’re absorbing the brunt of the work. Therefore, we recommend rotating the tires not only to ensure they don’t wear too quickly but also because it’s safer for the vehicle to have more tread in certain areas.
Once we’re done with the tire rotation and oil change, our job is not done because we always do a multi-point inspection that allows us to spot any problems and bring them to your attention. Serving the communities of Anoka, Andover, Brooklyn Park, and Ham Lake, MN, Rapids Honda has earned our reputation for reliability and professionalism.
