Your Guide to 2010 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura RDX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your RDX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2010 Acura RDX!

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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RDX's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Acura RDX problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura RDX

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Acura RDX and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your RDX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Acura RDX. 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 RDX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RDX stranded. Your Acura RDX won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2010 Acura RDX's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 RDX in the chart at the top 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. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2010 Acura RDX.

  • When should I have Acura RDX alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage!
