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. Just follow your 2020 Acura MDX maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your MDX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2020 Acura MDX problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura MDX

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2020 Acura MDX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your MDX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2020 Acura MDX. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 2020 Acura MDX running newer, longer. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2020 MDX in the chart at the top 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 2020 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.

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura MDX's steering system with regular maintenance.
