Your Guide to 2010 Acura RL Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura RL, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your RL has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get RL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 2010 Acura RL maintenance schedule!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your RL's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2010 Acura RL problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RL Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2010 Acura RL 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. 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.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2010 Acura RL. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. 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.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2010 Acura RL's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2010 RL in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. 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 2010 Acura RL? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Acura RL steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Acura RL steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura RL's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura RL services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. 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 can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2010 Acura RL maintenance and repairs.
