Transmission Services for 2012 Acura RDX

What’s the Importance of Your 2012 RDX’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the engine to the wheels so that you can drive on your terms. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Acura RDX transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, jumping or grinding during acceleration, a feeling of shakiness, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. Let Acura RDX transmission problems linger and you might notice your fuel economy decrease or discover that your RDX’s not even driveable.

2012 Acura RDX Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RDX’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my RDX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Acura RDX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
