Congrats on the purchase. Post some pics!!Well I bought the car. Happy with the condition, has had dealer maint done. Now that it’s just about 30,000 miles was going to do some of the Sub maint schedule items. Rear diff maybe the CVT. Both are just drain and refil right?
Brake fluid absorbs water so you really need to flush it through the entire system, reservoir to wheel cylinders. That will protect your ABS pump, rubber hoses, and calipers.Is there any value in doing the brake fluid just from the res? Must be pretty clean in such a new car.
It's on the list !Brake fluid absorbs water so you really need to flush it through the entire system, reservoir to wheel cylinders. That will protect your ABS pump, rubber hoses, and calipers.
As I said, since yours is a 2016, doing the brake fluid replacement next spring when its warmer out is OK.
Good advice; is it Honda branded like most of their fluids?With winter coming, on an unfamiliar car the first thing I'd check is the coolant, for level, and also to make sure it is good down to a low temp that will safely get you to Spring without a cracked block. I never take it for granted.
Good luck, enjoy your new ride, and show us some pictures so we can enjoy it too!
It DOES need to be the proper type (unless you are going to do a complete purge).Coolant doesn't necessarily need to be Honda brand, but if that's what's in there now, I'd stick with it, don't mix. When it needs it, flush and fill with top-rated coolant.
