Your Guide to 2018 Acura TLX Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Acura TLX to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your TLX. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine TLX maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2018 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. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; 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. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your TLX perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2018 Acura TLX problems later.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura TLX Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2018 Acura TLX for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your TLX’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2018 Acura TLX? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your TLX may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Acura TLX battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Acura TLX won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 2018 Acura TLX running newer, longer. To learn how often Acura recommends you have the oil changed in your 2018 TLX, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2018 Acura TLX.

Maintaining your Acura TLX steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Acura TLX's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you skip recommended Acura TLX services, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Acura TLX engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Acura TLX radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 2018 Acura TLX maintenance and repairs.

We can help you keep your vehicle (and your life!) running smoothly. Many of our locations have weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
