2017 Honda Pilot oil change schedule

The standard for regular oil changes used to be every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever came first. However, now that vehicles are becoming more and more advanced, there is some disagreement among experts regarding how often oil changes are actually necessary. The best way to determine how often you should change your specific vehicle’s oil is to check out your owner’s manual, but the information may be tough to find. Our team at Matt Castrucci Honda is here to help in any way we can, so if you’re the proud owner of a 2017 Honda Pilot, keep reading! We’ve checked out the owner’s manual for you to find out just how often you should be changing your vehicle’s engine oil.

How often does the 2017 Honda Pilot need an oil change?

Honda recommends changing the oil in the 2017 Pilot every 7,500 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first. That being said, if you are consistently driving in dusty conditions, are regularly driving extended periods at low speeds or driving in extremely hot or cold climates, you are going to want to change your oil more regularly to keep you engine in tip-top shape. If you have trouble remembering to change the oil in your vehicle on time, you’re in luck. The 2017 Pilot comes with Maintenance Minder™, which displays a message on the Pilot’s dashboard reminding the driver that maintenance is due.

    I have a 2018 Honda Pilot purchased there with 5000 miles. Can you advise the oil change and tire rotation schedule?

    I purchased a 2017 Honda Pilot, AWD, at year-end in Houston.
    It has now almost 6000 miles on it and is due for 1st oil change. I read everywhere that one must go to the dealer or a bonafide garage for this service.

    So far I have serviced all of my cars, trucks and tractors myself. Is there any reason why I should not change my oil in this car? I know the thing is more complicated than anything I have worked on before, but we are just talking about an oil change.

    Also I purchased 5-20 Synthetic Castrol oil. Is that a bad choice, the book says 0-20 oil.

    Thank You,

    Hello I am the owner of a 2018 Honda Pilot.
    My Pilot asked me for maintenance at 2400 miles which seemed weird did the service at the dealer & they said it was normal.
    Know my Pilot has 5800 miles & once again it’s asking for maintenance.
    My question is it normal to do 2 oil services within 7500miles
