Question: 34300 miles - what maintenance needed?

2007 Honda Fit. Approx 6213 miles a year. City driving mostly with some distance driving. Last maintenance minder code was at 11720 miles. No maintenance minder code since then. What maintenance should I be doing at this point? Am doing regular oil changes every 3800 miles. Regular tire inspection, change, inflation, rotation and balance with summer/winter season (I'm in Canada).

Also, I would like to know how I can protect the A/C, since I have already had rocks perforate the condenser. Expensive 1200$ repair. It is the weakness in the design - but what can I do to avoid this costly damage from happening again?

Thanks a million!

Your service intervals look fine. Just follow your owner's manual recommendations on what is needed at specific mileages. (tune ups/ transmission service, etc). other than that keep doing what you are doing.

As to the AC, there isn't really much you can do. It is in front of the radiator (like most cars) so if a rock is going to hit something, the condenser is the most likely target. If you cover it up, you would block the air flow to the radiator and condenser and may cause overheat and/or AC cooling issues.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
