2018 Acura MDX Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2018 Acura MDX

Your MDX’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Acura, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 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.

Acura MDX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care.

Your Acura could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Acura MDX drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Acura MDX drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
