You are forgiven if you forgot the Acura ILX was a thing. The Honda Civic-based compact sedan has never really been a viable competitor to something like a BMW 3 Series, let alone an Audi A3, and to top it all off it looked unfathomably boring. Acura has at least fixed the last problem with this update for 2019, and…
What we know about Elon Musk’s alleged take-Tesla-private plans a week later, how Lincoln wants to go more premium, Harley-Davidson’s troubles and more on The Morning Shift for Monday, August 13, 2018.
I don’t have all the answers. Never pretended to. But I thought I mostly had things figured out, you know? Like I had a pretty good grip on things, knew how to handle myself and get around. But I don’t recognize reality anymore. Not when a late 1990s Honda Civic Si can sell for as much as a new one, or an Acura…
Here’s the rare 2.0-liter turbo V6 Honda Legend from the late 1980s, doing cool Honda Legend things.
There’s nothing you can’t find on Craigslist, whether it be an obscure car you’ve been dying to buy, or even just the reassurance that you’re not having as bad a day as someone else. This listing for might tick both of those boxes if you’re in the market for a 1997 Acura TL.
People forget, but there was an Integra Type R sedan! And it was good, from what I hear. Your kids would’ve loved to have been hauled to school in it, screaming with delight as the VTEC kicked in.

To be completely honest, I have no idea what this Acura TLX-based prototype is, exactly. All I know is that it’s doing some testing on some of America’s best roads with an NSX and an AMG and it looks completely awesome.
You and your best friend do everything together. Go to the movies together. Go on vacation together. Read the same books. Watch the same TV shows and hit the same mileage milestones in your awesome Acuras. Friendship is a miracle!
Making rounds on the internet is a video apparently showing police officers rush a mechanic’s shop near Atlanta, Georgia after hearing loud, rapid banging noises. Those noises, the police thought, came from a gun, but in reality, they were produced by a modified Japanese sports coupe.
Back in ‘95, I was not particularly concerned with Acura’s lineup. I didn’t care much about cars in general then, but if anything interested me it was going to be the muscle cars and European sports cars of the ‘60s and early ‘70s. How little I knew.
We’ve been big fans of what Honda’s been up to lately, what with fast and fun stuff like the Civic Type R and the NSX. Besides that expensive supercar, however, the fun hasn’t really trickled up to the Acura luxury brand—the last TLX we drove was far more dull than it looked. But Acura seems intent on fixing that by…
Acura has never been more American than it is now. After three straight years of selling more than 50,000 RDXs here, we’re getting the first one designed and developed in the States in the form of the 2019 Acura RDX.
I like to save a buck wherever I can. I like doing this so much that I cut my kitchen sponges and only use one half at a time to make the pack last longer. My kind and considerate friends say I’m “frugal,” but let’s just call it what it is: I am a cheap bastard and these car deals have me extremely interested.
This year, Wayne Taylor Racing has been the team to beat in the WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, having a championship title all but in the bag before they even showed up to the season finale. It’s largely in part to the ultra-fast sons of Wayne Taylor, and now one of them will be driving an Acura next year.
When I first walked up to the 2018 Acura TLX A-Spec, I had to circle it a few times. It looked good—really good, even. The color was perfect, the styling was right along those lines and it looked, surprisingly, like a genuinely enjoyable sedan. Then I got in it.
