You want your Acura ILX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your ILX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get ILX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2021 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your ILX perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2021 Acura ILX problems later.

Overview of Essential Acura ILX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2021 Acura ILX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2021 Acura ILX. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2021 Acura ILX engine. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 ILX, check out the information table at the beginning 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 Acura ILX.

Routine upkeep for your Acura ILX suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions.

  • When should I have Acura ILX alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2021 ILX is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura ILX? If your Acura ILX has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura ILX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
