What to Know About 2018 Acura ILX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura ILX and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Acura ILX!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your ILX running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Acura ILX problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura ILX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Acura ILX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. 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 2018 Acura ILX? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty ILX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 prevent premature wear on your 2018 Acura ILX engine. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 ILX in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Acura ILX.

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!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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. Components within your Acura ILX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Acura ILX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. 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. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura ILX? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Acura ILX maintenance.
