Did you read the maintenance schedule supplied in your owners manual? Go by what YOU KNOW instead of what you're TOLD! How do you know your source knows what they're talking about? In many cases, they're passing wrong information THEY WERE TOLD THEMSELVES! Read the owners manual and see for yourself.

Hey I am a honda tech, If your maint. minder is asking for a b16 you need a eng oil and filter change, rear diff service, and front and rear brake servicing, and tire rotation. Maint. minders are good, ask your dealer for a brocher of the maint. schedule and it will give you a brake down of what all the letters and numbers mean. If you do not service your truck properly and on time you wil void your warrenty, so be carefull. It will also keep your resale value high. Find a good honda tech. there are a lot of techs that get paid by the job and will cut corners when working on your truck so they will make more money. A techs. yearly income for a tech that does a good job is 40 000 - 50 000. A bad (bucther) tech will make anywhere from 60 000 to a 150 000 dollars depending on how busy the shop is and how much they will hack up your car. So beware and dont get ripped off.l

I had that same bad experience with the renowned "Collision Service of Green". Front and rear damage. Just pounded the plastic parts back into place. Did not paint or blend anything. Left parts off of the front bumper lights. Pounded my front plate as flat as they could and put it back on my truck. $3700 or so wasted on about $250 of work. rpm

I also had my wifes CR-V 2012 in the renowned I had that same bad experience with the renowned "Collision Service of Green". High Front damage from a deer collision. $5400 of work that seemed pretty good be we only had it for a few weeks after that. Likely the same bull-shit defects would become evident after a month or so. We traded it about 2 weeks after we got it back from the shop.
