2012 Acura RDX Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2012 Acura RDX Drivetrain Service

Your RDX’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2012 Acura RDX to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Acura's recommendations.

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 2012 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. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Acura RDX.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Acura RDX? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
