Maintenance for Your 2014 Acura RDX

What is the maintenance schedule for the 2014 Acura RDX?

Here’s Why 2014 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Acura RDX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RDX. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RDX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2014 Acura RDX!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RDX's life, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2014 Acura RDX problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RDX Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2014 Acura RDX and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your RDX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2014 Acura RDX be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RDX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura RDX won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2014 Acura RDX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2014 RDX. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2014 Acura RDX.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura RDX can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Acura RDX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Acura RDX's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Acura RDX maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura RDX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Acura RDX radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2014 Acura RDX maintenance.

Don’t wait until something goes wrong with your car. Visit your nearest location for proactive maintenance today.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2014 Acura RDX. Get answers to common Acura RDX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura RDX alignment checked? 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 does my Acura RDX need high mileage oil? If your Acura RDX has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? 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.
