2003 Acura TL Maintenance and Service Schedule

When should you have your 2003 Acura TL suspension system inspected or repaired?

When To Get 2003 Acura TL Suspension Service

During the first few years you had your 2003 Acura TL, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. Lately, though, your ride’s been feeling a little bumpy. Maybe your TL jolts, sways to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2003 Acura TL in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

We'll start by inspecting the suspension system to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock absorbers, coil springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, axle bearings, and power steering components. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll go over the services you need and how much they will cost before we do any work. If your Acura TL’s suspension or steering system components need to be replaced due to wear and tear, we may also suggest a wheel alignment because installing new steering and suspension components may alter wheel angles and ride height.

Acura TL Replacement Shocks & Struts

Your 2003 Acura TL’s suspension system relies on its shocks and struts to function properly. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Acura up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your TL’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be indicators of worn Acura TL shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your TL’s shocks and struts routinely inspected by an ASE-certified technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

2003 TL Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my TL's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A tire that doesn't have an adequate amount of tread can't grip the road or function as well as the manufacturer intended.
  • Are routine tire rotations and wheel alignments important for my Acura TL? Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that your tires come into contact with the road as they should.
  • When should I have my Acura TL power steering fluid checked? Have your power steering fluid checked when you get an oil change or every few months. If your TL’s power steering fluid is low, we can fill it per Acura's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
