Instead of the timetables and mile markers of a traditional recommended maintenance schedule, the 2019 Honda Civic uses the handy Maintenance Minder™ system to let you know when you need to schedule service and exactly what services will be performed. Follow our guide to Honda Civic Sedan maintenance at Sussex Honda, and contact our service department in the Hackettstown area if you have any questions.

Maintenance Minder™ Oil Life

One of the most important things to note about the Maintenance Minder™ system is the Oil Life gauge which tells you how soon you need to get an oil change. Below are the oil life percentages and what they mean:

  • 15% = Service Due Soon
  • 5% = Service Due Now
  • 0% = Service Past Due

Maintenance Minder™ Codes

When it’s time for your next service appointment in Sparta Twp, the Maintenance Minder™ system will let you know with a code of letters and/or numbers so you can take your vehicle in proactively and prevent problems along the way without having to calculate months or miles yourself, or remember the last time you went in for service. These codes are sorted by Maintenance Main Items (letter codes) and Maintenance Sub Items (number codes) below is a breakdown of what the codes mean.
