Your Guide to 2017 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RDX to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your RDX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2017 Acura RDX!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; 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, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2017 Acura RDX problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RDX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2017 Acura RDX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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 2017 Acura RDX be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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 be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2017 Acura RDX engine. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2017 RDX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. 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 2017 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!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura RDX's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura RDX maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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. Need a new Acura RDX radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2017 Acura RDX maintenance.

2017 Acura RDX Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2017 Acura RDX. Get answers to common Acura RDX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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? 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 Acura dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Acura RDX in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
