Honda Tailored Service Program

1. Introduction

Honda understands how important it is that scheduled service costs are clear. The Honda Tailored Service Program’s Service Price guide gives you the certainty of being able to look up the current upfront cost for a particular scheduled service at the time you book that service, no matter which Honda dealer you visit, within the first 5 years or 100,000kms, whichever occurs first.

By checking the price of the eligible service on our website at the time you book your scheduled service, you can be assured that you will pay no more than the price as per the service price guide on our website for that service. Please refer to the “Honda Service Price Guide” at the time of booking your service.

2. What is the Honda Tailored Service Program?

Honda Tailored Service Program provides a Service Price Guide for eligible Honda vehicles for:

  • 5 years from the time of first retail registration; or
  • the period during the first 100,000kms travelled by the vehicle, whichever expires first

The Honda Tailored Service Program information is available on www.honda.com.au/hts and through your Authorised Honda Dealer.

3. How it works

The Honda Tailored Service Price is calculated in 2 parts:

  1. The “BASE” scheduled service – Every scheduled service has a basic number of service items that will require attention which include but are not limited to items such as: engine oil, oil filter, check fluids, tyre rotation, important safety checks and electrics. The base service is required when a particular milestone is reached by either time or kilometres driven – e.g. 1 month or 1,000km, whichever occurs first. For further details, please refer to your Owner’s Warranty and Service Manual under normal periodic maintenance schedule section.

  2. ADDITIONAL SERVICE /ADAPTIVE ITEMS” -    In addition to the “Base” scheduled service, there may be additional service items that will require attention from time to time depending upon your driving needs,  the age of the vehicle and/or distance travelled and we call these “Adaptive Items”.  These include but are not limited to cabin pollen filters, engine air filters and brake fluid replacement.

When you book your scheduled service, the price given will only include the Base and Adaptive items.
