In 2008 Accord and 2009 Jazz models saw the introduction of a new Service Reminder System or SRvS system. This system was designed for owners to gauge when the car’s engine oil and other service items which needed to be replacing. Honda wanted find the balance of a traditional severe and normal condition fixed service schedule to determine an accurate service point. It also dependent on how the owners drives the car and it does not do away on just how many miles the car has travelled. All other service items i.e air,pollen,fuel filters are still calculated on a distance or time basis so the system will prompt the owners to visit the dealer at least once per year. We have already started thread around SvRS to expand on this topic. http://hondakarma.com/threads/43/ http://hondakarma.com/threads/87/ http://hondakarma.com/threads/44/ To gauge the effectiveness of this system and to ascertain if this is a good feature can the 8th Generation owners please give their opinions.
