Questions About 2007 Acura RDX’s Transmission

  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RDX’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my RDX transmission fluid need to be checked? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2007 RDX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Acura's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
