2011 Acura RDX Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2011 Acura RDX

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your RDX's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Acura, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your RDX and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2011 Acura RDX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Acura's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Acura RDX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2011 Acura RDX drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Acura could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Acura RDX drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2011 Acura RDX drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
