Service Recommendation by Honda Dealers
My CR-V has 48000 miles on it. Every time my Service Minder tell me to take my car for Maintenance, it seems it cost over $250 because they have to replace things like Interior Cabin filter at 15000 miles, Automatic Transmission fluid changed at 30000miles, Brake Fluid Service at 40000miles( this service alone was $225) and now at 48000 miles they are saying I need to replace Power steering fluid ($139.95) and Throttle Body fuel injector service for ($239) and new Battery for ($139) Oh, and lets not forget its time to change the cabin filter again $98.95! Over $600 recommendation service at 48000miles over their regular Service minder cost for a Honda was a bit questionable and I had them just stick to the Service Minder service only and I am reaching out to CR-V owners to see if this is normal service cost for owning a Honda. I have owned Honda and Toyota in the past, and I really don't remember costing so much to maintain a vehicle. I'm convinced to try Honda certified mechanic for my next service and I think I will have my husband change my car battery, but if owning a Honda is going to be high maintenance car, I would prefer looking at Toyota or even luxury line of cars that include maintenance. I would really appreciate your input, since I do love my CR-V 2011 EX-L 4WD.
