Just follow your 2013 Acura ILX maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your ILX running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2013 Acura ILX problems later.

Overview of Essential Acura ILX Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2013 Acura ILX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your ILX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2013 Acura ILX? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura ILX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your ILX stranded. Your Acura ILX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Acura ILX engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 ILX. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Acura ILX? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura ILX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura ILX's steering system with regular maintenance.

At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura ILX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura ILX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura ILX? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura ILX? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Acura ILX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
