What to Know About 2016 Acura TLX Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Acura TLX, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your TLX. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your TLX, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 2016 Acura TLX!

Acura knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your TLX perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 2016 Acura TLX problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura TLX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2016 Acura TLX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your TLX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2016 Acura TLX 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your TLX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura TLX battery, and so can frequent short drives. 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 TLX) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Acura TLX 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 prevent premature wear on your 2016 Acura TLX engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2016 TLX. 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 2016 Acura TLX.

Maintaining your Acura TLX steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. 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 the appropriate Acura TLX steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Acura TLX's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Acura TLX maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.

2016 Acura TLX Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2016 Acura TLX. Get answers to common Acura TLX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Acura TLX alignment checked? You know your Acura TLX better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I switch my Acura TLX to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Acura TLX engines.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? 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 TLX to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
