Owner Maintenance Checks

The following lists are vehicle maintenance checks and inspections that should be performed by the owner or qualified service technician at the indicated intervals to help make sure of safe, dependable operation of the vehicle. The Owner Guide contains supporting specifications and service information.

Any adverse conditions should be brought to the attention of the dealer or qualified service technician as soon as possible.

The owner maintenance checks are generally not covered by warranties and the owner may be charged for labor, parts and lubricants used.

When You Stop for Fuel

        Check the engine oil level.
        Check the windshield washer fluid level.
        Look for low or under-inflated tires.
        Check tow hitch security if towing a trailer or vehicle.

While Operating Your Vehicle

        Note any changes in the sound of the exhaust or any smell of exhaust fumes in the vehicle.

        Check for vibration in the steering wheel. Notice any increased steering effort or looseness in the steering wheel or change in its straight-ahead position.

        Notice if the vehicle constantly turns slightly or pulls to one side when traveling on smooth, level road.

        When stopping, listen and check for strange sounds, pulling to one side, increased brake pedal travel or hard-to-push brake pedal.

        If any slipping or changes in the operation of the transmission occurs, check the transaxle fluid level.

        Check automatic transaxle PARK function.

        Check parking brake.

        Check for fluid leaks under the vehicle (water dripping from the air conditioning system after use is normal).

At Least Monthly

        Check and adjust tire pressure. Check tires when cold, not after a long drive.
        Check radiator, heater and air-conditioning hoses for leaks or damage.
        Check coolant level in the coolant recovery reservoir.
        Check operation of all exterior lamps, including the brake lamps.
        Check for fluid leaks by inspecting the surface beneath the vehicle for oil, coolant or other fluid drips. Clean water dripping from the air conditioning system is normal.

At Least Twice a Year (i.e. Every Spring and Fall)

        Check radiator, heater and air conditioning hoses for leaks or damage.
        Check windshield washer spray and wiper operation. Check and replace worn wiper blades.
        Check power steering reservoir fluid level.
        Check headlamp alignment.
        Inspect halfshaft boots.
        Check exhaust system for leaks, damage or loose parts and remove any foreign material trapped by shielding.
        Check seat and shoulder belt webbing, buckles and release mechanisms.
        Inspect seat back latches for proper operation.
        Check air pressure in spare tire.
        Check for worn tires and loose wheel lug nuts.
        Flush complete underside of vehicle.
        Note: It is normal for a certain amount of moisture and staining to be present around the muffler seams. The presence of soot, light surface rust or moisture does not indicate a faulty muffler.
        Inspect underbody components for damage.
        Check parking brake system.

At Least Once a Year

        Clean body and door drain holes.
        Lubricate door hinges, checks, and hood hinges.
        Lubricate door, hood and deck/liftgate locks and latches.
        Lubricate door rubber weatherstrips.
        Check the air conditioning system before the warm weather season.
        Inspect the power steering fluid level.
        Inspect engine cooling system, hoses and clamps; and check coolant strength every 12 months or 15,000 miles (24,000 km).
        Inspect and lubricate automatic transaxle linkage and controls.
        Clean battery and terminals, check electrolyte level on low maintenance (auxiliary and replacement) batteries.
        Change engine coolant every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) or 36 months.
        Check brake fluid level.
