Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Acura TSX Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 2012 Acura TSX to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your TSX's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2012 Acura TSX? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your TSX may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Acura TSX 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your TSX stranded. Your Acura TSX could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 2012 Acura TSX engine. See Acura's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 2012 TSX in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2012 Acura TSX.

2012 Acura TSX Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 2012 Acura TSX. Get answers to common Acura TSX maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Acura TSX? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Acura TSX need 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 TSX engines.
  • Can Acura dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Acura TSX, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
