Your Guide to 2008 Acura MDX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura MDX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your MDX 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 MDX maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2008 Acura MDX maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MDX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2008 Acura MDX problems.

Bring your 2008 Acura MDX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2008 Acura MDX? In general, car batteries only last three to 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 MDX 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. 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 Acura MDX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2008 MDX. 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 2008 Acura MDX.

Components within your Acura MDX's steering system require regular maintenance.

  • When should I have Acura MDX alignment checked? You know your Acura MDX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Acura MDX need 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 MDX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura MDX 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.
