40,000 km Scheduled Maintenance

In order for our customers to enjoy their experience with Honda vehicles, it is essential to perform proper maintenance periodically. Otherwise, the life of the vehicle will be significantly shortened and in extreme cases, the drivers’ and passengers’ lives may be endangered. If just one bolt or nut is not properly tightened, it could lead to a dangerous situation. This is why scheduled maintenance is so important, it provides security and trouble-free operation throughout the life of the vehicle. It also saves the customers’ time and money by preventing unexpected repairs or accidents caused from lack of maintenance.

From the dealers’ and technicians’ point of view, maintenance jobs are essential in stabilizing revenues, because they generally account for more than 50% of total service visits. Since performing maintenance does not require special skills, expensive specialized tools or equipment, they are the most profitable job in service operations as all specified parts are readily available. Through scheduled maintenance operations, good customer relations can be established, which contributes to a positive overall Honda owners’ experience. Therefore, learning and becoming proficient with this module is very important for you.
