2021 Acura RDX Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. Defying your RDX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my RDX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Maintaining your Acura RDX transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health.
