    Hi all, I have a 2012 Honda Civic (LX I believe) and recently, the Maintenance Info option under my menu screen has disappeared. Shortly before this, it displayed the "Service Due Soon" message and informed me that I need an oil change, transmission fluid change, and tire rotation. A day or two...

  6. Automatic Transmission Maintenance?

    Drivetrain Problems
    I have read the OM and the only thing I see there for the 5AT maintenance is to check the dipstick and that you might be warned by the Maintenance Minder codes to replace the ATF. I've not been under a 9th gen with a 5AT to see if there is a drain plug on the transaxle. If there is none, I'd...

  10. Break in period

    General Maintenance
    Do you guys go buy it or not? In the owners manual it states to atleast go 600 miles without driving it hard. In other words, no:pinkvtec::pinkvtec::pinkvtec::pinkvtec: I've heard people say this is bs and I've also heard people who stand by this. Just curious as to what you guys think.
