Suspension Service & Repair for 2013 Acura RDX

Is It Time For 2013 Acura RDX Suspension Service?

When you first bought your 2013 Acura RDX, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your RDX feels bouncy, sways to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. As soon as you notice that something’s “off” with your 2013 Acura RDX, bring it in for steering and suspension services. We'll pinpoint the problem.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll check the front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if your RDX suspension system needs repair, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Acura RDX suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura RDX Suspension Shocks or Strut Replacement

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2013 Acura RDX’s suspension. They contribute to your car’s handling, keeping it from bottoming out when the road gets bumpy. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your RDX’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking forward and backward could all be indicators of worn Acura RDX shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2013 Acura RDX’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
