I have 81k on this Honda accord coupe and want to know when I'm due to change out the transmission fluid along with the power steering fluid?
Also how about brake pads?
I'm getting ready for a long 20-hour road trip and want this ride to not miss a beat. Just changed out the battery a month ago because I live in AZ and they tend to fail every two years.
Performing regular maintenance according to the factory-recommended Maintenance Schedule is the best way to keep your Honda running in optimal condition.
Each vehicle has its own maintenance needs, so Honda develops specific maintenance schedules based on model equipment, such as transmission choice or the addition of a towing package.
Your car has a "maintenance minder" display on the instrument panel that will help alert you when it's time for standard maintenance to be performed. The Maintenance Schedule calculates service needs based on your carâ€™s mileage. It checks engine-operating conditions and helps coordinate oil service dates and other maintenance check-ups. Prevent problems before they occur.
You can download a copy of your owner's manual at the following link:

Typically, they recommend that brake fluid be changed every three years. They do not give a specific recommendation for transmission/power steering fluid.
