Your Guide to 2006 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your RL could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RL, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2006 Acura RL!

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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 RL perform better, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2006 Acura RL problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RL Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2006 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your RL. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2006 Acura RL? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura RL battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2006 Acura RL engine. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2006 RL in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2006 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura RL can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Acura RL suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura RL's steering system with regular maintenance.

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!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura RL cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Acura RL radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2006 Acura RL maintenance and repairs.

  • When should I have Acura RL alignment checked? You know your Acura RL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving.

  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura RL? Do you have more than 75,000 miles on your Acura RL? If so, request to switch to high mileage oil at your next oil change. This type of oil is specially formulated to keep aging engine parts in the best possible condition.
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? 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.
