Your Guide to 2018 Acura RLX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura RLX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your RLX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your RLX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 Acura RLX!

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. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your RLX running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Acura RLX problems later.

Overview of Essential Acura RLX Maintenance Needs

Bring your 2018 Acura RLX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. 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.

Could your 2018 Acura RLX be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura RLX battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 RLX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2018 Acura RLX's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2018 RLX in the chart at the top of this page. 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2018 Acura RLX? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura RLX can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura RLX's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura RLX maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura RLX cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is your Acura RLX radiator in need of replacement? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 2018 Acura RLX maintenance.

2018 Acura RLX Maintenance Questions

Take an active role in maintaining your 2018 Acura RLX. Get answers to common Acura RLX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • 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 use high mileage oil in my Acura RLX? 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.
  •  Why are my Acura dashboard lights on? 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
