Your Guide to 2018 Acura MDX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura MDX and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, 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 2018 Acura MDX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your MDX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Acura MDX problems in the future.

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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty MDX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura MDX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2018 Acura MDX.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura MDX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.

  • When should I switch my Acura MDX to high mileage oil? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura MDX? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should.
