Your Guide to 2009 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RL to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your RL. 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. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2009 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; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your RL running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2009 Acura RL problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Acura RL

Bring your 2009 Acura RL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your RL’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 2009 Acura RL be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2009 Acura RL running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2009 RL. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2009 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Acura RL steering and suspension 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. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Acura RL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Acura RL's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Acura RL maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura RL engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Acura RL radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2009 Acura RL maintenance.

2009 Acura RL Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2009 Acura RL. Get answers to common Acura RL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura RL? You know your Acura RL better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Acura RL? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura RL engines.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? 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. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura RL, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
