Honda Fit Routine Maintenance: 7,500 Miles
Once your Honda Fit reaches 7,500 miles, you’ll need to bring it in for its first oil change. In addition to changing the oil, your service technician will change the oil filter, inspect the brakes, check the fluid levels and tire pressure, and rotate the tires. Repeat this service every 7,500 miles to help your Honda Fit run smoothly.
In addition to the maintenance required every 7,500 miles, the 15,000-mile service interval requires the technician to conduct some other much-needed inspections and part replacements. For instance, you’ll want to have the wheels balanced and the air filter replaced.
Your service technician will also do the following, plus other tasks:
- Inspect the shocks, struts, and crankcase filter.
- Service the transmission system.
- Check fuel and brake system.
- Inspect the spark plugs and replace if necessary.
- Adjust the parking brake.
When your Honda Fit approaches 30,000 miles (or any interval of 30,000), you’ll need to schedule a service appointment for some regular maintenance. The technician will replace the oil filter and the engine oil in addition to the engine air filter and coolant.
This maintenance interval is also when the air conditioning filter is replaced along with the fuel filter and the spark plugs.
But service doesn’t stop there. Your 2016 Honda Fit will need to have the steering wheel linkage and boots inspected, the parking brake adjusted, the brake system inspected, and a number of other component inspections to make sure that everything is in good working condition.
Looking for More Service Intervals?
Above you’ll find general service recommendations for three mileage intervals: 7,500, 15,000, and 30,000. Repeat the service listed below each interval every time your Honda Fit reaches that amount in mileage. So, for example, you’d want to get all of the service listed under the 7,500 interval when your Fit reaches 7,500 miles and again when it reaches 15,000 miles, and again when it reaches 22,500 and so on.
