The recommendation for a Honda oil change is every 5,000 to 10,000 miles or once or twice a year. The second part is important. Oil degrades over time even when not used, so if you have a Honda, for instance, that you only use on the weekends, you’re still going to want to change the oil regularly. With a vehicle you use a lot, it may be optimal to replace that oil more than twice a year.
Be mindful that the recommendation is just a guideline. Honda provides a specific recommendation for each model it makes. You’ll find it in the owner’s manual, or you can call our Winter Honda service center, and we’ll provide you that information. There are other factors as well. If you have a Honda that you drive hard, it may be better to replace the oil on a more aggressive schedule than Honda advises for the average driver, and our Honda team is happy to help you make that determination.
