Newer models that had well known issues are 2015 Honda CRV, which could suffer from engine and transmission problems, and 2015 Honda Pilot which had electrical system problems and some transmission issues. That’s why it is so important to bring your vehicle in for regular maintenance and service.

We highly recommend use of fully synthetic engine oil – while it is a little bit more expensive, it offers better engine protection than the conventional oil or the synthetic-conventional oil blend. 100% Synthetic oil stays slippery longer, and it degrades more slowly in the high heat generated by modern engines. The additional cost of the synthetic engine oil is offset by the longer service intervals – if your vehicle uses regular oil, it should undergo oil change every 3000-3500 miles. With synthetic oil, your vehicle can easily go 5000 miles between oil changes. Additionally, all Honda vehicles are known for their excellent fuel efficiency – so the added cost of the synthetic oil is easily offset by the longer engine life - keeping your Honda longer means saving on fuel costs, as well as not having to buy a new vehicle. With the current automobile prices, it can easily add up to $4000/year savings in avoided new car payments.
