I took in our 2017 Honda CR-V for regular oil change and tire rotation at 38,000 miles. The mechanic recommended two additional services a Platinum Fuel Service for $180 and brake system fluid replacement for $110. I said “no thanks I need to check with my husband…” which really meant “search the internet and post on CarTalk.”
From my research it sounds like the fuel service is not necessary with regular oil changes (which we do) but not certain on how often the brake fluid needs to be replaced in this vehicle.
Honda uses an electronic “maintenance minder” system with cryptic codes so I can’t tell what is actually due at 38k since the mechanic cleared the computer and I don’t recall what the dash said.
Any idea if we should do either of these? The car is not having any problems.
