It’s best to get a brake check before your Acura RDX shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.

You know your Acura RDX like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. Generally speaking, automakers like Acura suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles.

Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Acura RDX brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
