2013 Acura MDX Suspension Service & Repair

Does Your 2013 Acura MDX Suspension Need Inspection?

During the first few years you had your 2013 Acura MDX, you probably enjoyed a smooth and steady ride. Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your MDX feels bouncy, leans to one side, or makes a weird sound when you drive over a speed bump or turn. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Acura MDX, bring it in for steering and suspension repairs. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, damper springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, axle 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 explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your MDX steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend a wheel alignment since replacing steering and suspension parts can change existing wheel angles and ride height.

Acura MDX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Your 2013 Acura MDX’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. 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. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your MDX’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, side-to-side swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation can all point to issues with your Acura MDX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Acura MDX’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.

2013 MDX Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Acura's 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 bother with routine wheel alignments and tire rotations for my Acura MDX? 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 the tires connect with the road how Acura intended.
  • When does Acura MDX power steering fluid need to be inspected or changed? Have your power steering fluid inspected every few months or when you get an oil change. If your MDX’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help your suspension perform smoothly.
