Got the A12 code this week and almost 31,000 on the vehicle. Got the A1 code approx. 10,000 and again approx. 20,000 mile intervals. The selling dealer (where we had the A1 codes done) was adament about a 30,000 mile service and it would be $300.
Today I stopped by our local dealer (who couldn't/wouldn't meet the price of the selling dealer for the purchase) and asked about prices and what was included. They have a printed hand-out with the Honda Required Maintenance Packages with the A and B codes listed with what is included and a page with the Sub Items performed WITH Package A or B as well as individual maintenance service prices. This local dealer has a total price of $143.45 for codes A12. This hand-out is for server driving conditions as we have the muddy, dusty roads and a LOT of HOT degree days.
For some reason I was thinking the B code pops up around the 30,000 mark but that could be because of what the selling dealer's service dept. said. I do know I had figured (using their prices) that the service was $300 and a new set of tires would be due close to the same time.
Neither dealer uses Honda oil. Selling dealer uses Penn oil and local dealer uses Chevron oil.
When can I expect that B code to actually pop up as I would hate to do the A12 and then just a few more miles have the B code show up?
