Scheduled Maintenance for Your 2003 Acura TL

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 2003 Acura TL?

Here’s Why 2003 Acura TL Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Acura TL, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your TL has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine TL maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2003 Acura TL!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Acura themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your TL's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2003 Acura TL problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura TL Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2003 Acura TL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your TL. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 2003 Acura TL be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Acura TL battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty TL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura TL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 2003 Acura TL's engine run smoother. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2003 TL in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 2003 Acura TL? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Acura TL steering and suspension system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Acura TL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura TL's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura TL? 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.

  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Acura? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Acura TL to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
