The Honda CR-V is one of the most reliable SUVs on the road today. With lots of cargo room, safety features, and an efficient powertrain, everyone from families to commuters can trust this well-rounded ride. To make sure your SUV stays on the road for a long time, it's important to take it in for maintenance.

So, how often should you schedule an appointment? What are they doing to your SUV anyway? Maguire Honda of Ithaca explores all of that for drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, and Corning with this look at the Honda CR-V maintenance schedule.

Every 7,500 Miles

To keep your Honda CR-V looking and driving like it just got off the showroom floor, it's a good idea to bring it in for maintenance every 7,500 miles. These regular trips to the service center will cover basic maintenance under the hood and check to see if the tires are delivering dependable traction.

If this is your vehicle's first trip to the service center, a technician will give it an oil change then inspect and rotate your tires. They'll also look over your vehicle to check for any signs of wear and tear.

Every 15,000 Miles

When you come back at 15,000 miles, your Honda CR-V will get another oil change, as well as a new oil filter. This appointment will once against involve a tire rotation. This time around though, technicians will inspect a lot more of your parts and systems.

On top of your oil, all your vehicle's fluids will need to be checked including the transmission fluid, differential fluid, coolant, and brake fluid. In fact, the whole brake system will need to be inspected. They'll check on the brake lines, look for any leaks, then examine the brake pads to see if they should be replaced.

In addition to the brake system, Honda technicians will also look at the driveshaft boots, exhaust system, fuel lines, tie rod ends, steering gearbox, and suspension.

Every 30,000 Miles

By the time your Honda CR-V hits 30,000 miles, its visited the service center a few times and gotten used to regular oil changes and tire rotations. These basic maintenance procedures will help you put a lot more miles on it.

Every 30,000 miles, you'll have the same work and inspection you got back at 15,000 miles. Only this time, technicians will replace your air cleaner element too. They'll also inspect your drive belts and adjust them. Finally, they'll make sure your SUV gets a new set of spark plugs.
