Is it time to service your Honda?

How many people have told you that “Honda is the most reliable car on the road,” or “I never have to maintain my Honda, it won’t break.” Well, there is some truth to that. Even though the Honda Civic, Accord, CRV and other early models drove and handled like a cheaper-made vehicle, their engineering proved to be of lasting quality. That’s why we provide maintenance services for so many high-mile Hondas here at Steve’s Imports.

The best way to make sure your Honda keeps running strong is with regular servicing.

We can diagnose and repair any problem with your Honda while providing maintenance to prevent future issues.

What makes a Honda so reliable?

Honda Repair PortlandHonda has an incredible history as one of the world’s largest manufactured vehicle makes while focusing on longevity and more than ever, performance.

Honda owners usually return to owning a Honda once leaving the brand because they are built to last and their reputation precedes them.

What are the most common Honda problems we repair?

Most of our Honda specific calls are usually rough running or a check engine light that is on , keeping a car from passing DEQ. Don’t let this stress you out, it’s usually an easy repair.

Just some of the Honda issues we frequently fix include:

  • Bad or failing starter relay
  • Transmission failures

  • TPMS warning light is on
