2014 Acura MDX: Third Service
September 24, 2014
The "Maintenance Due Soon" warning appeared in the instrument panel in our 2014 Acura MDX for the third time just as the odometer was about to hit 22,000 miles. We could have waited until service was required, but the SUV was about to go on a 2,000-mile road trip and we didn't want to travel on used oil.
There was one thing on the agenda before heading over to Santa Monica Acura. Our first A1 service, which was only a tire rotation and oil change, ran us $140.02. Rent is high in Santa Monica, but we knew we could do better. The dealer's Web site had a service special for a $29.95 oil change, so we printed out the coupon.
We brought the MDX to the dealer, handed over the coupon, and left. We didn't need the car back immediately and returned the next morning to pick up our gray chariot. It was clean and ready to go on another adventure.
Total cost for the A1 maintenance: $57.38
