Your Guide to 2006 Acura MDX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura MDX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MDX. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MDX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2006 Acura MDX maintenance schedule!

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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MDX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2006 Acura MDX problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura MDX

Bring your 2006 Acura MDX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your MDX. 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.

Could your 2006 Acura MDX be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your MDX may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura MDX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Acura MDX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Acura MDX engine. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2006 MDX, 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. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2006 Acura MDX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura MDX 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! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Acura MDX steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura MDX's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura MDX services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura MDX’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2006 Acura MDX. Get answers to common Acura MDX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura MDX alignment checked? 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 does my Acura MDX need high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura MDX? 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 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 MDX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
