What is the maintenance schedule for the 2008 Acura RDX?
You want your Acura RDX to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your RDX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. 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 RDX, 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 2008 Acura RDX!
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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your RDX perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2008 Acura RDX problems later.
Bring your 2008 Acura RDX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your RDX. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2008 Acura RDX. In general, car batteries only last three to 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 RDX battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RDX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura RDX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2008 Acura RDX running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2008 RDX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2008 Acura RDX? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura RDX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Acura RDX 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.

If you skip recommended Acura RDX services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.
