What to Know About 2013 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RDX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your RDX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RDX maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2013 Acura RDX!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. 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 oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your RDX perform better, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 2013 Acura RDX problems.

Overview of Essential Acura RDX Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2013 Acura RDX and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RDX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Acura RDX. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Acura RDX battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RDX stranded. Your Acura RDX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2013 Acura RDX engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2013 RDX. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2013 Acura RDX? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Acura RDX suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!).

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura RDX's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura RDX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura RDX? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura RDX engines.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Acura RDX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
