I’ve got a 2006 Honda Civic Ex Coupe that I bought used about a year and a half ago. 75k, basically just been changing the oil per the maintenance minder and have had zero issues with the car so far. A local dealership is pushing a “Fuel System Cleaning Service”:
Using specialized equipment, our technician will clean the throttle body, intake valves and combustion chamber, removing carbon deposits, build-up, and debris. This can help to restore lost power & performance & reduce harmful exhaust emissions, improving fuel economy. A fuel injector cleaner is also installed into the fuel tank.
From what I’ve read on the forums/columns here, this is pretty much just a boat payment for the dealer, correct? Like I said the car runs fine - is it good practice to get this as preventative maintenance? Think they are charging around $100…
