Acura Maintenance Minder Service Codes | Menus

Rather than using a static table of time and mileage to keep track of maintenance, the Acura Maintenance Minder system calculates service needs based on how the vehicle is driven. It checks engine operating conditions, such as weather extremes, stop-and-start traffic, and frequent short trips, and helps coordinate oil service dates and other maintenance check-ups to minimize your trips to the service department.

Following the Acura Maintenance Minder is the best thing you can do for your vehicle. Regular scheduled maintenance helps prevent problems before they occur.
