Top 3 Commonly Replaced Honda Parts

Modern cars contain an estimated 30,000 parts. Some of these parts last the entire life of a vehicle, while others need multiple replacements. 

Which Honda parts in Van Nuys, CA can you expect to replace quite often? Here are the top three commonly replaced parts we often see at Keyes Honda. 

1. Air Filter

Your air filter intercepts contaminants and keeps them from entering your engine. How frequently you should change your air filter varies depending on driving conditions. 

Generally, you should replace your air filter every 30,000 miles or roughly every three years, whichever comes first. If the filter is still in good condition, you may be able to clean it instead of replacing it. Severe driving conditions like off-roading, stop-and-go driving, and short commutes will accelerate air filter wear. 

2. Battery

On average, car batteries last three to five years. You can preserve your battery's life by regularly checking the terminals and removing corrosion buildup with a toothbrush. 

You can also extend the life of your battery by keeping short drives (under five miles) to a minimum. Frequently starting your car between short commutes doesn’t allow ample time for the battery to recharge. 

3. Head and Tail Lights

Head and tail lights need to be replaced every six years on average, though this depends on how often you drive in the evening. Fortunately, the bulbs are easy to replace, and the process is quick and inexpensive. 

If your car has xenon bulbs, you're in luck. These last much longer compared to the more conventional filament bulbs.
