Here’s Why 2021 Acura RDX Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Acura RDX and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, 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. Just follow your 2021 Acura RDX maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Acura, your vehicle manufacturer. 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of 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 2021 Acura RDX problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Acura RDX Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2021 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 2021 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your RDX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura RDX battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RDX stranded. 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 help your 2021 Acura RDX's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2021 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. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2021 Acura RDX.

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. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide the appropriate Acura RDX steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Acura RDX's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura RDX services, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura RDX cooling, heating, and climate control system.

Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2021 Acura RDX maintenance and repairs.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2021 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? You know your Acura RDX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura RDX? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura RDX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura RDX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
