It’s best to get a brake check before your Acura RLX shows signs of brake troubles. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or a sensation that things aren't like they used to be. You know your Acura RLX better than anyone else. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! In general, manufacturers like Acura advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Not sure if something’s wrong? Stop by your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick brake inspection. We offer free brake checks seven days a week.

How often should you change your 2019 Acura RLX’s brake pads? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your RLX. Some brake pad materials last longer than others. Thankfully, when you get Acura RLX brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your RLX, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Acura’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Acura RLX. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Safe driving is difficult when your brakes are anything but their best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, and this metal-to-metal friction shortens the life of otherwise healthy brake components. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 2019 Acura RLX brake repairs. Our brake repair services include pad/shoe replacement, rotor/drum resurfacing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder service.
