Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. 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 2011 Acura RL!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include 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, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2011 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 2011 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 2011 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura RL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2011 Acura RL's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2011 RL. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2011 Acura RL.
