Hello everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Back in May 2017 we leased an EXL for my wife. I've been following the maintenance schedule but the latest maintenance minder warning code is B167 which is the usual oil change & tire rotation plus this time it now calls for replacing the brake fluid & differential fluid. The car has just under 20K miles currently. I've been around cars doing my own maintenance for a long time and I still admit that I don't know everything but I'm sorry, that seems insane at 20K miles. A friend of mine is a Volkswagen mechanic and he didn't even believe me that Honda was calling for those fluids to be replaced at 20K miles, especially the brake fluid.

I know there are Honda apologist who will just say do whatever Honda says. And I don't want to seem like I'm disgruntled and defiant that I won't get this done, I really just want to gather as much information as I can to make a decision. If I don't get those 2 fluids changed now and just do the usual oil change & tire rotation could there be an issue next year when we turn vehicle in at the end of the lease? This is the first time we've ever leased a vehicle so I'm not entirely sure how that works
2017 CRV, make sure you return it after 3 years. It's not worth buying with the certain engine damage. That being said, never do that service on a leased vehicle you'll replace it 3 years. The leadership can do all the services when you return it.
