HOW DO I GET MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE FOR 2012 CIVIC? IT IS NOT IN OWNERS MANUAL.

Your caps are stuck on.

Most cars, when bought new, come with a service schedule book where you can take note and document the service done. Yours didn’t? If so, ask your dealers.

I Think Honda Is Saving Paper. I Believe It’s A Situation Where The Car Is Supposed To Use Idiot Lights And Driver Information Alerts To Inform A Driver When To Do What.

Dumbing down, You’re supposed to ask a friendly dealer who’ll have the opportunity to sell you all kinds of service, necessary and otherwise.

You can use this but I would advise caution if you do. Note that some of the services tell you to rely on a dashboard OLM and this gets many people in trouble by leaving them with a damaged engine or other component system.

Changing the oil once a year may not be good enough depending on your driving habits, enviro conditions, and so on.

I also note that Honda, like others, is still making that totally misguided recommendation about how to inspect valve lash by stating it should be done “when they’re noisy”.
Jesus Christ; one would think that a factory full of experts would know better. The quiet valves are the ones that should be of more concern.

"The quiet valves are the ones that should be of more concern."
Dumbing Down Is Convenient. Ignorance Is Bliss. However, Replacing Burned Valves And Seats Is Not.

There is one for the US, but you need to go through a free registration first.

Try a Google search. My search for “2012 Honda Civic maintenance schedule” brought up several options. One that seemed pretty good is:
