Here’s Why 2013 Acura TL Scheduled Maintenance Matters

When it comes to your Acura TL, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your TL has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get TL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2013 Acura TL!

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. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your TL's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2013 Acura TL problems in the future.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 2013 Acura TL. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your TL may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura TL 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty TL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura TL 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 help your 2013 Acura TL's engine run smoother. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2013 TL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2013 Acura TL.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Acura TL 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! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system 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.

If you fall behind on routine Acura TL maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Acura TL cooling, heating, and climate control system. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Acura TL? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re on it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for 2013 Acura TL maintenance.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2013 Acura TL. Get answers to common Acura TL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura TL alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 2013 TL is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
