Your Guide to 2011 Acura MDX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura MDX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MDX. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MDX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2011 Acura MDX!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MDX running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2011 Acura MDX problems.

Overview of Essential Acura MDX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2011 Acura MDX for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your MDX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2011 Acura MDX. 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura MDX battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty MDX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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 2011 Acura MDX running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2011 MDX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2011 Acura MDX? We can help with that, too!

You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Acura MDX suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement.

  • 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.
