Questions About 2003 Acura RSX’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Acura's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your RSX towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your RSX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my RSX's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Acura RSX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
