GENUINE ACURA PARTS
The core of Acura quality exists in every part of your vehicle. When you choose Genuine Acura Parts, you can count on the highest quality standards imposed by Acura engineers.
Many non-genuine parts may claim to be reliable, but they are not produced to meet Acura’s engineering and material specifications. Compromise one part and you may unknowingly compromise a whole system.
Genuine Acura Parts are precisely designed and rigorously tested by Acura’s R&D team. By choosing Genuine Acura Parts, you’re also choosing to not compromise your vehicle’s performance or safety.
Contact an Acura dealer when your vehicle needs repairs. They’ll ensure that only Genuine Acura Parts are being used, and that they’re installed by a factory-trained Acura technician.
Tires are the most ignored and underrated component of your vehicle. They are the only interface between your Acura and the road to provide traction to accelerate, steer and stop. Your Acura dealer knows your vehicle best and will ensure it’s equipped with the optimum choice of tire for your driving needs.
See Maintenance Schedule >
Winter tires stay flexible in temperatures below 7˚C to provide the necessary traction for cold weather driving conditions. They reduce braking distance on cold, wet, ice and snow covered roads in comparison to all-season tires. The traction provided by winter tires enhances the performance of anti-lock braking systems (ABS), vehicle stability assist (VSA), traction control and all-wheel drive in winter conditions. Industry data shows that in cold weather, a vehicle equipped with winter tires has approximately a 40% lesser chance of being involved in a collision than one equipped with all-season tires.
All-season tires are designed to provide traction and durability in a wide variety of seasonal road conditions. However, they cannot provide the same levels of traction in winter conditions as a proper winter tire.
They are best suited to use in temperatures above 7˚C.
A middle ground for more unpredictable climates, all-weather tires perform better in winter conditions than all-season tires and better on summer roads than winter tires, but they don’t excel at either – especially for longer periods.
Although Acura recommends a dedicated all season/summer tire & winter for optimal driving performance and safety, there are all-weather tire options available. Talk to your Service Advisor to determined which tires will best suit your driving needs.
Studies have shown that up to 70% of vehicles on the road have at least one under-inflated tire. Checking and maintaining tire pressure regularly will help extend tire life and reduce fuel consumption.
Your specific driving habits and vehicle usage directly influence the rate and pattern of tread wear. Periodic rotation of tires is critical to maximizing their life.
Misaligned wheels can cause uneven and rapid tire wear as well as symptoms such as your Acura pulling to one side or the steering wheel not being centered when driving straight. It is normal for wheel alignment to change through the life of the vehicle and it should be checked and corrected if needed.
Proper wheel balance helps prevent unnecessary wear to the tires, steering, and suspension components and also provides for a more enjoyable driving experience. Wheel balancing should be checked periodically when you change or rotate tires, and always be done when replacing tires, or when a tire has been removed from a wheel for any reason.
Anything that increase a tire’s rolling resistance or friction with the road surface will increase the amount of work required of the engine and therefore the amount of fuel it burns.
See Maintenance Schedule >
Under-inflation increases a tire’s rolling resistance, so don’t always wait before you check them. Tires that are 56 kPa (8 PSI) low can increase fuel consumption by 4%. Think of the air to keep your tires at proper pressure as “free” gasoline.
Wheel misalignment increases the resistance of the tires to roll in the direction of vehicle movement. The increased “drag” caused could increase fuel consumption by up to 25%.
Designed Precisely for Your Acura Engine.
The oil filter on your Acura’s engine traps and retains fine particles that are generated during engine operation. Efficient filtration is essential to preventing engine wear and damage and to maintain proper oil flow for lubrication and cooling.
The oil filter should be replaced with the engine oil when indicated by your Acura’s maintenance schedule, or Maintenance Minder system. Genuine Acura oil filters are manufactured to our original equipment specifications meaning the same factory-grade starndard of filtration protection can be found from your Acrura dealer.
Genuine Acura Brake Parts, designed by Acura engineers, specifically for your Acura’s braking system.
When you press your Acura’s brake pedal, the friction material on the brake pads is pushed against the brake discs to create friction which resists the rotation of the discs. Each time the brakes are used, a small amount of friction material, or “lining”, is worn off. Eventually, the thickness of the lining will diminish to the point where replacement is necessary. Exactly when this occurs depends several factors from driving habits, vehicle usage and frequency of brake maintenance. Regular inspection and servicing is required to keep your braking system in top working order. Follow the maintenance requirements stated in your Acura’s Owner’s Manual. When brake pads or shoes require replacement, insist on Genuine Acura Parts to maintain the original performance and help keep your Acura as safe as it was crafted to be.
Your Acura dealership has the power to keep you going.
Your Acura’s battery is one of its most important components. It stores and provides power to start its engine and to operate its many electrical and electronic systems. Time and use will gradually affect its ability to accept and hold a charge, and eventually do its job.
Having your Acura dealer test your Acura’s charging system and your battery’s condition, and replacing it if necessary, during required maintenance can prevent the inconvenience caused by an unexpectedly weakened or exhausted battery.
Genuine Acura replacement batteries are manufactured to match your Acura’s electrical system specifications, are competitively priced and are backed by a 60 month, unlimited mileage warranty. During the first 24 months, the battery and labour are covered 100%. During months 25 through 60, the replacement cost of the battery is pro-rated.
Wipe away cost by choosing Acura wiper blades.
Being able to see clearly is critical when driving in rain and snow. This is why it is very important to check your Acura’s wiper blades for damage periodically and watch for signs that they are wearing out like streaking, or not clearing the glass efficiently. Acura wiper blades are designed so you can replace only the rubber insert and not have to change the whole blade. This makes replacement quick and cost-effective. Your Acura dealer can provide and install the proper sizes of Genuine Acura rubber inserts.
Most Acura vehicles are equipped with an air filter to remove dust, pollen and debris from outside air that enters the passenger cabin through the heating and air conditioning system.
As the cabin air filter gets dirty, air flow in and out becomes restricted. Periodic replacement of the cabin air filter is specified in the Maintenance section of your Acura’s Owner’s Manual. More frequent replacement may be necessary if you often drive in dusty conditions.
If foreign materials make their way into your engine, they can cause internal damage and premature wear. Your Acura’s engine has an intake air cleaner which contains an air filter element that prevents dust and debris from entering the cylinders whenever the engine is running.
A clogged air filter affects engine performance and can increase fuel consumption as well as contribute to engine oil contamination.
Air filter inspection and replacement is required at specific maintenance intervals, as indicated in the Owner’s Manual or by the Maintenance Minder system, if equipped. If you often drive in dusty conditions, more frequent replacement may be necessary.
Depending on the model, the drive belt operates the water pump, the alternator, and the power steering pump. It also drives the air conditioning compressor on A/C equipped vehicles. Belt replacement is necessary if the belt becomes worn, damaged, or as the rubber deteriorates due to age or contamination. Belt failure can result in engine overheating, loss of power steering, inoperative charging system, and inoperative A/C.
The timing belt drives the engine’s camshaft(s) to open and close the intake and exhaust valves at the proper time. On some Acura engines, the timing belt also drives the water pump to circulate the engine’s coolant. Some engine models also have a second smaller timing belt that drives a balancer shaft system to cancel out engine vibrations.
Periodic timing belt replacement according to your Acura’s maintenance schedule is critical to avoid belt failure and potential engine damage.
All Acura oils and fluids are specially formulated to meet the precise standards of quality established by Acura and are recommended to be used throughout the life of your Acura vehicle.
See Maintenance Schedule >
Engine oil lubricates the engine's moving internal parts to protect them against wear and reduce friction while also helping to cool the engine. As your oil deteriorates with time, it loses its ability to properly protect the engine. Follow the recommended oil change intervals specified by your Acura’s Owner’s Manual or Maintenance Minder system (if equipped).
Reduce engine wear and protect your investment by choosing Genuine Acura 0W-20 engine oil. (applicable to most model years - consult with your Acura dealer for compatibility).
Engine coolant absorbs and regulates the heat naturally generated by the engine and keeps it running at an optimum temperature. It also contains anti-freeze to keep operating in very cold temperatures, while also protecting the cooling system components with its anti-corrosion properties. Coolant‘s properties will deteriorate over time, so replacement is necessary at the recommended service intervals. It is also recommended that the coolant level is checked regularly as loss may indicate a cooling system problem or leakage that could lead to engine overheating and greater damage.
Automatic Transmission Fluid acts to cool and lubricate internal transmission components. Over time, the properties of the fluid are diminished, and replacement is necessary at the recommended service intervals. An inspection of the transmission, fluid hoses, pipes, and cooler (if equipped) should also be performed during recommended maintenance.
Brake fluid transfers hydraulic force to the brake calipers to slow or stop the vehicle. It tends to absorb moisture from the air and as a result the performance of the fluid deteriorates over time. Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years. The brake system’s hydraulic components should also be inspected for leaks or damage.
