Service Needed Now — Acura TSX 100,000 Mile Service
If you are driving an Acura TSX sedan or wagon, you are already familiar with the “service needed now” alert that pops up in the instrument cluster when it’s time for scheduled maintenance. But if your ride is about to hit the six-digit mark, 100,000 miles, the alert takes on a milestone quality. After all, 100,000 miles is a lot of miles. You start wondering what kind of services are needed, how long it will take, and most importantly, how much that Acura TSX 100,000 scheduled maintenance costs.
Well, there’s good news. When you’re driving an Acura, 100,000 miles is not that big of a deal. If you stay up on scheduled maintenance, you can expect to get 200,000 or more miles before the TSX gives up the ghost. That translates into a more or less routine maintenance visit (except for replacing the timing belt on V6 models) and not some monumental expense.
If you bought the Acura TSX new, or used, you probably “traded down” from one of the German luxury brands because you got fed up with the never-ending maintenance and operating costs. The Acura TSX is somewhere between practical and luxurious providing the plush leather interiors, excellent fit and finish, all the tech you expect, awesome sound system, and sporty handling (even the wagon) without robbing your wallet.
Your decision to buy an Acura TSX was a smart one. You’ve got a vehicle that will give you years more of reliable service, provided you stay up to date on scheduled maintenance. Whatever you do, don’t make the mistake of putting off service and allowing a minor issue to become a major repair
