017-Acura-RDX-Advance-Package-blue-exteriorReviewers of the 2017 Acura RDX repeatedly cite its good value, comfort, power and numerous standard features. That’s why drivers tell us at Speedcraft Acura that they are choosing the 2017 Acura RDX after comparing it against the 2017 Volvo XC60.

U.S. News and World Report, which ranks the 2017 Acura RDX at No. 3 out of 14 luxury compact SUVs, cites the 2017 Acura RDX’s “peppy and capable” V6 engine and smooth, quiet ride.

Schedule Rotating Acura Tires – Speedcraft Acura

By ccamara | Posted in Acura Maintenance, Uncategorized on Sunday, October 22nd, 2017 at 1:05 PM


Every driver should know that rotating Acura tires is important, but why should it be done and when?

Consider if it’s not done: The tread will wear unevenly, and one or two tires will need replacement before the others. Rear tires tend to wear fairly evenly, but the front tires usually wear faster and less uniformly. Front tires need to lean to the outside edge on corners, and they carry more weight than the rear tires because they’re closer to the engine and get more stress upon braking. Rotating your tires – side to side, front to back, or even diagonally – will ensure that they last as long as possible, wear more evenly, and that your car will handle predictably. Tires that wear unevenly are noisier as well. Read the rest of this entry »
