What Factors Impact Honda Oil Change Frequency?

Most auto experts suggest an oil change about every 7,500 to 10,000 miles, although you can refer to your Honda Civic owner’s manual for a more exact figure specific to your make and model. If your Honda Civic oil light is back on before you’re due for your next scheduled oil change, outside factors like the following may have caused early breakdown of your car’s oil.

  • Routine driving on dirt roads or dusty terrain
  • Towing or commercial use
  • Frequent off-roading
