Here’s Why 2016 Acura MDX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Acura MDX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your MDX. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your MDX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your MDX running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2016 Acura MDX problems.

Overview of Essential Acura MDX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2016 Acura MDX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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.

Could your 2016 Acura MDX be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2016 Acura MDX running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2016 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 2016 Acura MDX? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Acura MDX suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura MDX's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Acura MDX services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura MDX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Acura MDX radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2016 Acura MDX maintenance and repairs.
