Reasons to Get Regular Honda Service

 

Whether you own a brand-new Honda or a previously owned Honda -- you have to make sure that you take care of it. Properly taking care of your Honda includes having it serviced when needed. You always should follow the suggested maintenance schedule for the model Honda you buy, and you always should bring it in for inspection if there are problems. Here are a few reasons why scheduling regular Honda service is so important:

1. Keep Your Honda Safe

Having your Honda serviced according to its suggested maintenance schedule can help prevent major issues from occurring while you're on the road. Dangerous problems like failing brakes or issues with your power steering are less likely to occur if your car is regularly serviced. When you get your vehicle serviced, it will be thoroughly inspected to determine if anything needs to be repaired or replaced to keep your vehicle safe.

2. Maintain Performance and Reliability

By paying attention to the fluid levels of your vehicle and to the condition of various parts, you can maintain the performance levels of your Honda. For example, if you don't have the tires on your car rotated regularly or have them replaced once they've begun to wear down, you're going to notice that your Honda won't handle as well as it once did.

3. Lower Your Maintenance Costs

It may cost money to have your Honda serviced on a regular basis, but doing so will help save you money over the long term. When you don't service your vehicle, minor problems are more likely to pop up, which will then grow into major problems you won't be able to ignore -- and likely will cost much more to fix.

4. Maintain Your Honda's Re-Sale Value

When you sell a pre-owned Honda, the buyer is going to want to know about its history. If you didn't take proper care of your vehicle, it's going to be riddled with a history of maintenance and repair work that could either scare the buyer away or cause the buyer to demand a lower price.

A history of repairs generally means that there's a higher risk of something going wrong with the Honda in the future. Not to mention that if you just ignored your Honda's service needs, it will show in the way it handles. If you properly service your Honda, it should remain in good shape, which will help it retain its value.

5. Reduce The Risk of Roadside Emergencies

Having your Honda serviced when needed helps to reduce the risk of your vehicle breaking down while on the road. Having to wait by the side of the road for a tow truck is annoying, inconvenient, costly and sometimes even dangerous -- but it can be avoided.

As you can see, it pays to have regular Honda service done to your vehicle to ensure it remains safe, efficient and reliable and retains its value. If you need to service your vehicle, be sure to contact us at Bobby Rahal Honda to schedule service today.
