What is The Honda Maintenance Minder
The Honda Maintenance Minder helps prevent problems before they occur. Each model has its own maintenance schedule, making it easy for you to give your car the care it needs. To see all the Honda Maintenance Minder main codes and sub-codes, check your owner’s manual or ask us.
The Honda Maintenance Minder:
- Helps you stay on schedule with maintenance and part replacements
- Is a smart system that uses a vehicle’s computer to indicate when a car needs servicing
- Issues reminders or warnings that show as illuminated codes on your digital cluster
- Comes with a document that details all the codes and their meanings. If you don’t have this document, ask us for a copy.
What does The Honda Maintenance Minder track?
- Essentials with a maintenance code A. This includes things like engine oil life.
- Maintenance B reminders monitor things such as oil changes, tire rotation, brakes service, and more.
These are the top-level Minder codes. Engine oil change (Maintenance A or Minder 0).

- Multi point inspection: check tire pressure, horn, lights, wipers, and more

Do I need to change my oil if I haven't driven my car?
Yes, you need to change your oil if your car isn’t driven for a few months, or if you constantly take short trips. This is because the oil isn’t getting hot enough to evaporate water through the exhaust (there are small traces of water in all engine oil). As well, overtime, even the highest quality engine oil will degrade.
How often do I need to change the transmission fluid in my vehicle?
We recommend changing automatic transmission fluid every 45,000 km. For a manual transmission, change it at about 40,000 km. This is sooner than most manufacturers recommend. But with today’s stop-and-start driving, along with carrying heavier loads, it’s best to change it soon. Doing so will extend the life of your transmission and make driving smoother.
How long does a brake repair take?
It takes about 90 minutes to two hours to repair a set of breaks. If you have drum brakes on your rear wheels, the repair might take a bit longer.
How long does an engine repair take?
A major repair, such as a transmission, clutch, or catalytic converter replacement can take a day or longer. Even spark plug replacement can take hours on new cars. The plugs are on the side or at the bottom of the engine and difficult to access. If you’re getting the complete engine replaced or a transmission rebuild, expect to be without your car for at least seven days, if not or longer.
What does an average transmission repair cost?
The average transmission repair cost depends on what needs fixing and vehicle model. Repairs can run from $500 to $4,500 for a regular automatic transmission. For a CVT transmission repair costs are higher. If it’s a serious issue or the transmission is damaged beyond repair, you’ll need to replace the whole transmission. Replacement costs can go up to $5,000, and more for a CVT transmission.
What mileage is major servicing?
Your first service will be at 8,000 to 10,000 kms, and then every 40,000 to 49,000 kms. See our section above on the Honda Maintenance Minder. Follow the codes for servicing intervals, and check with our Service team for more major servicing information.
