- Ownership is convenient
With the prescribed periodic maintenance service (PMS) twice a year every six months, or 10,000 kilometers, whichever comes first, maintaining a Honda is much more convenient and reasonable than the quarterly PMS required by most brands. Likewise, this is made easier with the 37 authorized Honda dealerships nationwide where customers can be guaranteed of skilled and dedicated Service Advisors and staff, genuine parts and accessories, and the latest vehicle diagnosis and repair equipment. Customers are also offered online tools to better prepare for their vehicle’s PMS. They can learn more about the maintenance schedule such as the estimated cost of visits, parts checking, and replacement guide via HCPI’s website at www.hondaphil.com/maintenance.
