Based on issues that Honda Accord owners have reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, here are four items that should be on the service checklist of every Honda Accord owner. Consult your manufacturer recommendations for specific guidance on Honda Accord service intervals.

1. Battery

A car battery can make or break your day.

When your Honda Accord’s battery is working properly, you don’t even have to think about it. But if your battery is malfunctioning, it can leave you stuck at home, at work, at school, or on the side of the road.

The key to keeping your battery and your Honda Accord running like they should is to visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a free battery check. That’s the easiest way to prevent the misfortune of a battery mishap.

If your Accord does need a new battery, we’re equipped to install America’s No. 1 battery, manufactured by Interstate Batteries.

2. Oil

For the Honda Accord or any other car, oil is its lifeblood. Oil keeps the vehicle and engine running smoothly. Regularly scheduled oil service is critical to maintaining the health of your Honda Accord.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care can change your oil with one that’s the best fit for your Accord, your climate, and your driving style.

Each Firestone Complete Auto Care oil change comes with a free 19-point inspection to keep your engine humming along. Aside from an oil change, our oil service includes:

  • Replacing and recycling your Accord’s oil filter.
  • Inspecting the cabin filter, air filter, and other filters.
  • Topping off other vital fluids.

3. Steering and Suspension

Your Accord’s steering and suspension system are responsible for delivering a safe, comfortable ride. If the steering and suspension are off-track for any reason, then your ride will almost certainly get bumpy.

At the first sign of trouble, like a noise when you’re driving over bumps or uneven tire wear, you should steer your Accord toward a local Firestone Complete Auto Care. Once you’re there, our expert technicians can diagnose any problems after completing an all-around inspection that includes the power steering, power steering fluid, shocks, struts, and wheel bearings.

Our thorough steering and suspension service will have you back on the road to safe and bump-free driving.

4. Transmission

Getting a transmission fluid change and transmission flush is vital to maintaining the health of your Honda Accord. Regularly scheduled transmission maintenance that follows the manufacturer’s recommendations can contribute to the longevity of your Accord, letting you put even more miles on the odometer.

During transmission service at Firestone Complete Auto Care, our technicians will conduct a free courtesy check to inspect all of your Accord’s major operating systems — and help make sure all of them are running properly.

Stay on top of your manufacturer recommended maintenance schedule and turn to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for your all of your Honda Accord services and repairs.
