Your Guide to 2003 Acura RSX Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Acura RSX and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, your RSX has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine RSX maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2003 Acura RSX!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes 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 RSX running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2003 Acura RSX problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura RSX Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 2003 Acura RSX and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your RSX'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 2003 Acura RSX. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura RSX battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your RSX stranded. Your Acura RSX 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 support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2003 Acura RSX running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2003 RSX. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. 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 2003 Acura RSX? We can help with that, too!

Routine upkeep for your Acura RSX suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Acura RSX's steering system require regular maintenance.

Questions About 2003 Acura RSX Maintenance

Take an active role in maintaining your 2003 Acura RSX. Get answers to common Acura RSX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Acura RSX? 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 does my Acura RSX need 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 RSX engines.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? 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 RSX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
