Honda has extended the recommended service interval period for its vrhicles from 6 months to 12 months. Honda Car India recently launched the WR-V crossover and the company is recommending a service interval of 12 months or 10,000 km (whichever is earlier) for the model.

Until now, Honda vehicles could go through a service after every 6 months or 10,000 km. Owners often criticized  for this by those who did not have high running. Many customers also said that they were forced to get their cars serviced after every 6 months, even if they were nowhere close to the 10,000 km mark. Moreover, if the customer are not going for a regular service session of their vehicle, it would result in the warranty getting void.

The 12 months or 10,000 km interval is now standard in the industry and is a welcome initiative by Honda by extending the same for its new offering. It is still not confirmed whether the Japanese carmakers is up for the same decision, increasing the service intervals of its other models and offers the service period extension to existing customers as well.

Where Honda has taken this initiative, it is time for Toyota to think over it as well, as the company’s service interval is as low as 6 months / 5,000 km for the Innova and Fortuner. Recently announced that it introduce its latest product WR-V in Brazil, where the brand already exports some of its models to the overseas.
