What to Know About 2016 Acura RLX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura RLX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, your RLX could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RLX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2016 Acura RLX maintenance schedule!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. 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. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your RLX running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Acura RLX problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RLX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Acura RLX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RLX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2016 Acura RLX. 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 RLX battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty RLX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura RLX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2016 Acura RLX'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 2016 RLX. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2016 Acura RLX? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Acura RLX steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Acura RLX steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura RLX's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Acura RLX 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!). 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 RLX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura RLX? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2016 Acura RLX maintenance.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura RLX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Acura RLX to high mileage oil? 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 RLX engines.
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? 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 RLX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
