I HAVE A 2013 ODYSSEY THAT HAS 12,200 MILES. SINCE RETIRED

Customer Question
I HAVE A 2013 ODYSSEY...
I HAVE A 2013 ODYSSEY THAT HAS 12,200 MILES. SINCE I AM FULLY RETIRED NOW THE VAN SPENDS A LOT OF TIME PARKED IN THE DRIVEWAY.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT "SERVICES" IT WOULD NEED. I KNOW THAT THE SERVICE REP PERSON GETS PAID ON COMMISSION AND MAY RECOMMEND THINGS THAT AREN'T REALLY NEEDED.
IT HAS HAD 3 OIL CHANGES SO FAR. THE COOLANT, BATTERY, FREON, CV JOINTS LUBE, ETC. ARE ALL ORIGINAL. I AM ALMOST 73 NOW AND THIS MAY BE MY LAST CAR AND I WOULD LIKE IT TO CONTINUE BEING A RELIABLE CAR. THIS IS MY 3RD ODYSSEY. I HAVE BEEN VERY SATISFIED WITH ALL OF THEM. WHAT WOULD NEED TO BE DONE TO KEEP THE VAN RUNNING WELL INTO MY "OLD AGE?"

Wow! Let me help you with this,

The best thing you can do is change the oil and filter on a regular basis, I suggest every 5000 miles no matter what the oil life indicator says.

Change the transmission fluid every 60,000 miles and drive it at least 30 minutes every 3-4 days.

Tires get replaced every 8 years if they last that long. The belts do as well.

Gas turns sour in 3 - 4 months, cycle enough through to keep it fresh. Driving it on a regular basis goes a long way to keeping everything working.

Let me know how I can help you with your questions.

Thank you

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
