Questions About 2013 Acura RDX’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your RDX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RDX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my RDX transmission fluid need to be checked? 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.
