2013 Acura MDX Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2013 Acura MDX

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your MDX's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Acura, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your MDX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2013 Acura MDX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Acura's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Acura MDX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2013 Acura MDX drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your MDX might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Acura MDX doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2013 Acura MDX drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
