Has anyone been for a B1 maintenance minder service yet?
My CT is indicating it needs a B1 service (at 15% remaining) and wondering if anything else was required when you took your CT in.
I have over 25000 K on my CT and this is only my second scheduled service (the first being A1) and should cost around $200.
Anything I should be looking for? (besides the constant vibration).

Thanks.

B1 is the service code. It indicates what services need to be performed at a certain interval.

Here are the charts for the services on the CT:

  • Independent of the maintenance messages in the information display, replace the brake fluid every 3 years.
  • Inspect idle speed every 160,000 miles (256,000 km).
  • Adjust the valves during services A, B, 1, 2, or 3 if they are noisy.

I guess no one has gone for this service yet???

Thanks.
So, just to let you know, in addition to the B1 service, (which is $200 bucks plus) my CT also indicated a "6" which I find out requires the oil in the rear diff. to be replaced. That cost another $50. This will apply only if you have the 4WD. :)
The good news is it didn't require anything else. It still runs and drives great. 26,000 kilometres, and still driving like it is brand new.
I am truly pleased with this vehicle!

Thanks for the info, Bri.....I am surprised that the diff oil needed replacing so early tho. Perhaps it needs breaking in.

My Ridgeline wanted the diff oil changed at around 15k miles, and then again just over 30k. If I remember right the interval actually lengthens after the 30k. I'll have to look it up.

Do we know if that number comes on when the fluid is low?

Seems odd to me that a modern car needs a diff service so soon.

Most dealerships offer "spiffs" for services to the advisors for selling it.
