Default 2010 Civic: 70K Service Really A Thing?

Hi,

I'm going to a Honda Dealer Monday for an oil chance ( B 1 in the manual ).My car has about 67K on it. The clerk tried to sell me on something called a 70K Mile Service. This place always finds more things to do than what is in the manual. Is 70K Mile Service really a thing? Do I need to get it?

Thanks

Steve

Read my lips:

What.

Does.

Your.

Owner's.

Manual.

Say.

And why would you do anything else?

Maintain it to manufacturer's specifications, and repair it as needed.

Consider that the dealer is an independent businessman who wants to
make money. So he makes up some gobbledygook about a "70K mile
service" and ropes in some rubes.

Warning: while Honda has installed the Maintenance Minder, some
dealership service departments are putting out their own information
about what they do for each type of maintenance that shows up on the
Minder. And while it includes what the owner's manual says, it also
includes a bunch more of upsell.

So never tell the dealer, "I need B1 maintenance." That's not nearly
specific enough. Try, "I need the factory specificed B1 maintenance."
Or better yet, look up the B1 maintenance yourself and simply ask the
dealer or other repair shop to do those specific items by name, and
don't tell them a simple "B1".
