2006 Acura RSX Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Acura's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Acura? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your RSX’s towing capacity. 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.
  • Does my RSX's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2006 RSX’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Acura, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
