Questions About 2012 Acura RL’s Transmission

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Acura RL? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your RL towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my RL transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Acura RL transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Acura, so check with your technician first. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
