Acura A1 service refers to an Acura service code that informs you when service is due on your vehicle and what services are required. An Acura A1 service code, specifically, indicates that your Acura RDX or Acura MDX is due for an oil change and tire rotation. Through Acura Maintenance Minder™, you will be informed when scheduled maintenance is due based on your driving style, road conditions and other factors that can impact your vehicle's performance and longevity. Contact our Acura dealership in Glendale, CA, to learn more about Acura A1 service, Acura B1 service and other Acura service codes you may see pop up on your Acura Maintenance Minder™ interface.

What Is Acura Maintenance Minder™?

Acura Maintenance Minder™ informs Acura drivers when maintenance is due on their vehicle. The system message indicator appears on the multi-information display every time you turn your car or SUV on. The Acura Maintenance Minder™ codes dictate which type of maintenance your vehicle needs.

What are the Acura Service Codes?

Acura Maintenance Minder™ service codes help you determine exactly what type of service your vehicle needs.
