2004 MDX Acura Steering & Suspension Services

2004 Acura MDX Maintenance Schedule

Not sure when or if your Acura MDX’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Does Your 2004 Acura MDX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2004 Acura MDX, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MDX feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2004 Acura MDX in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis parts, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the source of your car problems and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Acura MDX’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura MDX

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2004 Acura MDX’s suspension. They influence the control and handling of the vehicle, keeping it from bottoming out. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there's no set schedule for 2004 Acura MDX shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. Bouncing, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Acura MDX shocks and struts. One of your best bets is to have your 2004 Acura MDX suspension shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2004 MDX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my MDX's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also help you notice when you need new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Acura MDX get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the correct amount of pressure is applied to each tire and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Acura MDX power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MDX is low on power steering fluid, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform optimally.
