Asked by Jan 15, 2015 at 06:19 PM about the 2010 Honda CR-V LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 2010 Honda CRV LX FWD with 51,000 miles.  New tires. New brakes, Oil
changes and rotations routinely. I would like to continue to maintain her properly.
What are the recommended intervals for fluid changes?
Transmission 30K/ 50k?
Brake fluid? would that have been done when they gave me new brakes last week?
   (I will call and check but in the mean time the other parts would be nice to know)

Also I want to install a Cold Air Intake to enhance performance.. Your thoughts?

Replacing brake fluid would be considered a brake flush. Wise to have it done every so often because brake fluid is hygroscopic. Problem is that YouTube is full of investigative videos of places charging for brake flushes but not doing the work.

In my readings I have seen one important quote that stood out.. "Brake fluid flush may be the most overlooked part of maintenance by many people.." By "every so often" what intervals would that be referring to? I am wondering what people find is beneficial/recommended in their experience. :) I want to make my baseline CRV-LX perform optimally for a very long time. I'd love a 100k car/suv but it's wiser to hold on to my already-paid-off-reliable- affordable to maintain Honda and sup her up so she's cool! Thanks everyone in advance for your feedback! Do you have any thoughts on adding a cold air intake? Performance enhancer or hype? Thanks ;)

I was looking at a Honda Maintenance Schedule and it was non-specific for the Honda models, but it recommended brake fluid flush at 50k miles. A lot of people go their entire car ownership life without doing one. As long as you do regular maintenace like fluids and filter changes there's no reason why the car can't last for a few hundred thousand miles. Taxis and police cars have regular maintenace and endure many miles. As for cold air intake, I'm not familiar with any types of setups. Cars do run better with cold air. I know that many states have strict policies in smog checks and altering the intake system would probably be a big no-no even though it would most likely enable to car to run better. In California new cars get a 5 year waiver before starting the biennial smog checks so if you live in a state with similar laws you might not pass the visual inspection for smog.

Brake fluid should be changed every three years according to the owners manual. Other fluid changes are done when the Maintenance Minder sub-code is displayed. This applies to Transmission (code 3), coolant (code 4), and differential for AWD (code 5).
