What to Know About 1989 Acura Legend Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura Legend, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your Legend has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Legend maintenance. Just follow your 1989 Acura Legend maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Legend perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1989 Acura Legend problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura Legend Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Acura Legend and our technicians will jump right in 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 Legend. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Acura Legend? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Legend may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura Legend 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 Legend) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura Legend could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Acura Legend running newer, longer. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 Legend 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. 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 1989 Acura Legend.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura Legend can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Acura Legend suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura Legend's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura Legend 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!). 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 Legend engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Acura Legend radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1989 Acura Legend maintenance.

Questions About 1989 Acura Legend Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 1989 Acura Legend. Get answers to common Acura Legend maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura Legend? 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 switch my Acura Legend to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura Legend engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura Legend 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.
