2003 Acura RL Maintenance and Service Schedule

Is the steering and suspension system in your Acura RL due for service yet?

Does Your 2003 Acura RL Suspension Need Inspection?

When you first drove your 2003 Acura RL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Maybe your RL jolts, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Acura RL in for suspension and steering service. We'll pinpoint the problem.

The expert technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will begin with an inspection to find out what's really going on. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, damper springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if your car needs steering and suspension repairs, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Acura RL suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Acura RL

Your 2003 Acura RL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These pieces work together to help dampen vibration and hold the car off the ground. But there's no set schedule for 2003 Acura RL shock and strut replacement since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Acura RL shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2003 Acura RL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. So, avoid a bumpy ride.
