Your car should be serviced every 12 months or 12500 miles; whichever comes sooner if the Honda Service Reminder System (SVRS) has not been activated. The only exception to this is the Civic Diesel, which requires an oil change every 6250 miles or 12 months from the previous oil change.
If the SVRS has been activated, the vehicle display will inform the driver of any maintenance due and give a time or mileage of when this needs to take place.
Tyre pressures should always be checked from cold. Cold means the vehicle has not been moved for at least 3 hours and driven less than 1 mile before checking. Tyre pressure can be checked using a tyre pressure gauge or with equipment at your local garage or petrol station. Your owner's manual will advise on what pressure your model's tyres should be.
