2010 Acura RDX Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura RDX? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RDX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.

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.
