What to Know About 2016 Acura ILX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura ILX and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your ILX. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your ILX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Acura ILX!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your ILX's life, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2016 Acura ILX problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura ILX Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2016 Acura ILX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your ILX. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Acura ILX. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Acura ILX battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your ILX stranded. Your Acura ILX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2016 Acura ILX's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2016 ILX in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2016 Acura ILX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura ILX can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Acura ILX suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura ILX's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Acura ILX services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura ILX’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Acura ILX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2016 Acura ILX maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Acura ILX. Get answers to common Acura ILX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura ILX in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
