My car has 38000 miles.

The service intervals for Hondas are set to turn on the service light at a certain mileage and should be every 5,000 miles. If whoever did your last service did not reset the service back to zero then the light would of come on shortly after having the service done.

Make sure to track the mileage and take your car in for service at the recommended mileage and have the maintenance light reset every time you get the service back to zero again.
