40k Mile Service

1275 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Hondamade4dogs
Hello! I just have a quick question concerning my upcoming 40k mile service (2007 Element SC). I'm no longer under the 36k mile warranty so I don't have the incentive to get my maintenance done at my local dealer.

So, my question is--since the 2007 Elements don't have a set maintenance schedule, is it okay for me to follow the 2006 Elements' maintenance schedule?

I did a search and half the camp seems to say it's perfectly fine while the other half says that we should follow the equipped maintenance minder. I don't trust it however, as all my fluids have been running on low (coolant, transmission, brake, power steering, etc) and nothing has even popped up. Either the dealer forgot to reset it, or it's out of funk, so I'm gonna maintain my car the old fashion way.

OH! Also, any suggestions for the most budget friendly OEM part sites online? HandA seems to be popular, but I like having my options open.

Any help would be appreciated, as my car is going to hit her 40's in a few hundred miles.

Thanks! :grin:
