Your Guide to 2018 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RDX to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RDX. But how do you know what service to get and when? 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 2018 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your RDX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2018 Acura RDX problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura RDX

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Acura RDX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in 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 2018 Acura RDX be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2018 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 2018 RDX. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Acura RDX.

Maintaining your Acura RDX steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, 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.

If you fall behind on routine Acura RDX maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Acura RDX’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
