Questions About 2018 Acura TLX’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Acura? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Acura tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your TLX is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my TLX transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Acura TLX’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Acura. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
