Questions About 2003 Acura RL’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura RL? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RL’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RL is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my RL's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Acura RL’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
