Most drivers know that there are various services their vehicle will need over time, from oil changes to brake replacements. When do you schedule maintenance service? We’re here to answer that question.

If you drive an SUV like the Acura RDX, your vehicle is able to monitor various systems and its performance as you drive around Jenkintown, Abington, and Lower Southampton Township to determine exactly when to get certain services done. Below, our Sussman Acura team explains how to stay aware of the performance of your RDX and what certain maintenance alerts mean.

Acura RDX Maintenance Schedule Jenkintown PA What is Maintenance Minder™?

Maintenance Minder™ is Acura’s way of keeping you up to date on the condition of your RDX. It lets you know when to schedule certain services. On the multi-information display, this will show you the current condition of your oil.

When the oil is changed, its oil life is shown at 100%. As time goes by, this number decreases. Once it hits 15%, you will get an alert to let you know it is almost time for an oil change. At five percent, it will then be time to go ahead and schedule a service appointment.

In addition to having the oil changed, you may see various letters or numbers appear on the display. Below, we go over what these various codes mean.

Maintenance Minder™ Codes

Acura RDX Maintenance Schedule Jenkintown PA You first will see either the letter A or B when Maintenance Minder™ sends you an alert.

  • A: This means it is time to replace the engine oil
  • B: If you see this letter, you will need to replace the engine oil as well as get a variety of parts and systems inspected. This includes the brakes, suspension components, exhaust system, and other fluid levels.

After one of these letters, you may also see a list of numbers. Depending on which numbers are also displayed, you will need to schedule to have the following services done at that time.


  • Rotate tires


  • Replace air cleaner element
  • Replace dust and pollen filter

On top of that, the number six means you will need to replace the rear differential fluid. If you see the number seven as well, it is time to have the brake fluid replaced.

Acura RDX Maintenance Schedule Jenkintown PA The Importance of Routine Maintenance

The reason it is important to get these services done when the time comes is so you can continue to enjoy the best performance possible while driving your Acura RDX. Having your vehicle regularly serviced not only ensures you are getting the best gas mileage possible, but it also keeps your car safely performing the way it should.

By getting parts replaced and fluids changed before they become worn also helps prevent more severe damage from happening, which would result in more complex repairs being needed. All in all, routine maintenance is what helps extend the life of your vehicle so you enjoy years of comfortable driving in your Acura!
