B2 Maintenance

First of all, I see from reading the posts on this site and other places on the internet that the maintenance minder does not determine the service interval solely based on mileage. I also see that mileage is not listed in either the owner's manual or the service manuals (except for a couple of specific items such as air filter replacement at 15,000 under dusty conditions, brake fluid replacement every 3 years, etc.).

My Question: That said, can anyone remember what their mileage was when their "B" service became due (B-1 or B-2) ? I want to get a ball park as to when this is going to occur.

I just had my B12 lit up on my MM. Took it to the dealer and did the oil change as I have done air filter, cabin filter, and tire rotation myself already. The rest is just inspect, lube and adust if necessary. Not worth paying for it IMO. As long as you do the fluid change per MM, I don't think it'll affect your warranty.

Your mileage?

That is exactly my intention. I already changed the engine and cabin air filter myself and I am going to a local mechanic to do the oil change and tire rotation and check and sign off on all other inspections (My tools are in storage). Once he resets the maintenance reminder, I am going to Honda for strictly TSB warranty work.

Not a single parts dealer in my area had any brand of either filter for the 2008 Honda Accord in stock. So just ordered 2 each (Fram engine and Fram cabin filters) from Amazon and received free shipping.

There is no mileage based maintenance. Just follow the maintenance minder and you will be fine. There are two time based maintenance items: brake fluid replacement every 3 years, and an oil change every 12 months (if you don't drive much).

just had my B1 service done at 15800 miles. Paid $85. Called a few dealers..prices were all over the place with one quoting me 250-300 bucks!! Ridiculous. Dont let them fool you..its an oil change and tire rotation and pencil whipping of the rest of the checks.

Thanks. I figured I was getting near the mileage ballpark.
