What to Know About 2003 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura RL and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your RL could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RL maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2003 Acura RL!

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. 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; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your RL perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 2003 Acura RL problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RL Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Acura RL for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2003 Acura RL. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your RL may need a replacement battery sooner. 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 RL battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Acura RL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2003 Acura RL's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 RL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 2003 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Acura RL suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Acura RL 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 RL's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura RL maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). 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 RL’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Acura RL radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2003 Acura RL maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
