2018 Acura RDX Drivetrain Service

2018 Acura RDX Drivetrain Service

Your RDX drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Acura, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your RDX’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2018 Acura RDX, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Acura's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Acura RDX Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2018 Acura RDX drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Acura RDX may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Acura RDX doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2018 Acura RDX drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
