Acura Auto Repair

 

ACURA ROUTINE MAINTENANCE

It is critical, and will save you money in the long run to do the vehicles recommended maintenance as seen in your owner’s manual. Preventative maintenance is critical in keeping your vehicle on the road and out of the shop! These services usually entail checking several components, such as the brakes, suspension and driveline. Typically there is an oil and filter service, fluid exchanges, filter replacements, and rotating of tires. Not every model requires the same service, so if you are unsure what should be done on your vehicle and at what time, we will gladly look up the recommended service intervals for you.

 

TIMING BELT SERVICE

This is generally due every 90,000-105,000 miles and is probably your largest service. We do not just throw a belt on these cars and call it a day; we do this service correctly and replace additional components while doing so. We usually upgrade the water pump at this time with one that has a metal impeller, versus the original, which is weak plastic. We also replace other common failure items in the same vicinity while performing this service such as your camshaft seals, crankshaft seal, timing belt idler, tensioner, roller, water pump gasket, thermostat and belts if necessary. This ensures that you are good to go for the next 90,000 or so miles.

 

ACURA “CHECK ENGINE” OR “SERVICE ENGINE SOON” LIGHT DIAGNOSIS

This means there is an emissions issue with your vehicles. This could be something minor, but there is a chance it could be something more. We highly recommend you at least get this figured out so it does not do any type of further damage to your vehicle. We have several state of the art computer systems that can accurately read and help us diagnose these “Check Engine” lights. Depending on what the problem is, this can be a time-consuming process. Sometimes it is an easy fix, but sometimes there are more entailed issues. Make sure you get your “Check Engine” light figured out sooner than later.

 

ACURA “TUNE-UP” SERVICES

The phrase “tune-up” used to mean replacing the spark plugs, ignition wires, and distributor parts. Now there are other components involved with your vehicles ignition system that play a role in fuel economy and power. We can make sure your vehicle is running top notch for you so you get the most bang for your buck at the gas pump! We can check and analyze the condition of your ignition system and running characteristics of your vehicles engine and give you a professional opinion on how it is doing.

 

ACURA TRANSMISSION, ENGINE & DRIVELINE SERVICE/REPAIR

All About Imports (AAI) in Denton, TX can properly diagnose and repair problems with your vehicles engine, transmission, and transaxle and get you back on the road where you need to be. Whether it knocks, clunks, vibrates, leaks, or smells, we can find it and fix it. Next time something seems out of the ordinary, don’t panic. It may be something minor. We take the time and effort to correctly diagnose even the smallest of concerns.

 

ACURA EXHAUST SYSTEM REPAIRS

Ensuring your exhaust system is working properly is very important. There are several components to your exhaust system. If your exhaust is not working properly it can actually cause your “Service Engine Soon” or “Check Engine” light to come on. If you are experiencing this it may be related to a component on your exhaust. We perform exhaust repairs with the inclusion of catalytic converters, oxygen sensors, resonators, and mufflers. We can perform weld work on your exhaust as well.

 

ACURA COOLING SYSTEM

Your vehicles cooling system is critical to its reliability. Ensuring proper engine cooling not only allows your engine to maintain at safe operating temperatures, but also allows for your interior heat to function properly. If you ever notice your vehicle is running hot, coolant light is coming on, or that your heat is not blowing hot air out of the vents, you should probably get that checked sooner than later to prevent possible damages.

 

ACURA AIR CONDITIONING SERVICE/REPAIR

If your vehicle’s air conditioning system is not cooling as well as you would like or is not working at all, we can find out the root problem for you and fix it! We proudly offer the ability to service, repair, and recharge your vehicles A/C system. Not only can we recharge the systems, but we can also diagnose reasons for non-functioning A/C systems. We are able to add trace dye to the refrigerant and use UV lights to pinpoint where leaks are. We can determine why your system is not cooling to your liking and get it working correctly for you in the warmer weather. These services vary in pricing, depending on what the problem is, but usually an hour’s diagnosis is sufficient to find what the problem is.

 

ACURA BRAKE SERVICE

We offer complete brake services, including replacement of brake pads, pad sensors, brake rotors and backing plates. We also clean and adjust all contact points on the calipers, lubricate the slide pins, and ensure there are no brake squeals or noises. We then perform the “break-in” process so everything is good to go for you when you pick up the vehicle.

 

ACURA BUSHINGS / SUSPENSION

A very common wear point on these fine Acura cars is their various bushings. The bushings on these cars tear over time, causing there to be several suspension issues with the vehicle, leading to uneven tire wear and uncomfortable ride situations. We also offer additional suspension repairs, including shock absorbers, struts, and ball joint repairs.

 

ACURA ALIGNMENT SERVICE

Ensuring your vehicles alignment is critical! We offer FREE alignment checks on your vehicle to ensure proper tracking, steering, and tire wear. If your vehicles alignment is out of spec it can substantially increase your tire wear. Call 940-566-2125 to get your alignment checked out FREE today!

Acura History

Acura is the luxury vehicle marque of Japanese automaker Honda.[1] The brand was launched in the United States and Canada in March 1986, marketing luxury, performance, and high-performance vehicles. It was introduced to Hong Kong in 1991, Mexico in 2004, China in 2006, Russia in 2014 and Kuwait in 2015, and is also sold in Ukraine.[2] Honda’s plan to introduce Acura to the Japanese domestic market (JDM) in 2008 was delayed, due to economic reasons,[3] and later withheld as a result of the 2008 financial crisis.[4]

 

Acura holds the distinction of being the first Japanese automotive luxury brand.[5] The creation of Acura coincided with the introduction of a JDM Honda dealership sales channel, called Honda Clio, which sold luxury vehicles, joining previously established Honda Verno, followed by Honda Primo the following year. In its first few years of existence, Acura was among the best-selling luxury marques in the US. Though sales were down in the mid-to-late 1990s, the brand experienced a revival in the early 2000s, due to drastic redesigns and the introductions of new models.[5]

 

In the late 1980s, the success of the company’s first flagship vehicle, the Legend, inspired fellow Japanese automakers Toyota and Nissan to launch their own luxury brands, Lexus and Infiniti, respectively. The 1990 launch of the NSX, a mid-engine exotic sports car, offered a reliable and practical alternative to exotic European sports cars, and introduced Honda’s VTEC variable valve timing system to the North American market. The 1993 Legend coupé featured Honda’s first use of a six-speed manual transmission, mated to a Type II engine. In the late 1990s, Acura produced a Type R version of its compact Integra coupé, which featured a reduced curb weight, a stiffer and lower suspension, and a high-output VTEC engine.

 

In the early 2000s, Acura introduced new models, including the company’s first all-original SUV, the MDX, and two models which replaced the Integra coupé and sedan, the RSX and TSX, respectively. Type-S versions of the RSX, CL, and TL were added to the brand’s lineup during that decade. Acura’s 2005 RL flagship introduced SH-AWD, a torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system. The 2007 RDX, a crossover SUV, featured the first North American use of a turbocharged Honda engine. In the 2010s, Acura debuted more new models, including the ILX, TLX, and RLX, the latter of which introduced Acura’s Jewel Eye LED headlights. A second generation NSXwas launched in 2015 and features a twin-turbocharged mid-engine, a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission, and Sport Hybrid SH-AWD.

 

History

1980s: Introduction of the Acura brand

The brand was created around the same time as Japanese rivals Nissan and Toyota developed their Infiniti and Lexus premium brands. The Japanese government imposed voluntary export restraints for the U.S. market, so it was more profitable for Japanese automakers to export more expensive cars to the U.S.

 

1987 Acura Legend

 

Following a decade of research, Honda opened 60 new dealerships in North America by 1986, to support its Acura automobile division. Acura was the first Japanese luxury brand, introduced under the slogan, “Acura. Precision Crafted Automobiles.”[1] Its initial offering consisted of two models: the executive class Legend and the compact class Integra, available as a five-door and three-door hatchback. The Legend was the result of Project XX, a joint venture Honda entered into with the UK’s Austin Rover Group. It was mechanically related to the Rover 800 series, while the Integra was an improvement of the Honda Quint hatchback.[6]

 

The success of these models, particularly the Legend, led to competing Japanese luxury brand ventures (Toyota’s Lexus that began development in 1983 as the F1 project, and Nissan’s Infiniti who began development in 1985 by revising their Japan-only flagship Nissan President; in the late 1990s Mazda planned but never launched its own Amati luxury division). The goal of the Legend was to compete with rivals Toyota Crown and the Nissan Cedric and Gloria, but due to its 1986 introduction worldwide, Toyota, Nissan and other companies like Lincoln took notice of the markets reaction to the Legend and later the Vigor and offered vehicles that addressed the executive size car. Toyota introduced the Lexus ES, Nissan introduced the Infiniti J30 and Ford utilized the Taurus platform and named their new sedan the Lincoln Continental.

 

First generation Acura Integra

 

 

In 1987, Acura’s first full year of sales, they sold 109,000 cars with the flagship Legend sedan accounting for 55,000 sales and the rest were of the smaller Integra. By 1990, Acura was selling 138,000 vehicles, including 54,000 Legends, compared to Mercedes-Benz’s 78,000 cars and 64,000 each for BMW and Lexus.[5]

 

1990s: NSX

In 1990, five years after the debut of the Legend and Integra, Acura introduced the NSX, a midship V6 powered, rear-wheel-drive sports car. The NSX, an acronym for “New Sports eXperimental”, was billed as the first Japanese car capable of competing with Ferrari and Porsche. This vehicle served as an “image car” for both the Honda and Acura brands, heralding the introduction of Honda’s VTEC technology. The NSX was the world’s first all-aluminum production car, and was also marketed and viewed by some as the “Everyday Supercar” thanks in part to its ease of use, quality and reliability, traits that were unheard of in the supercar segment at the time. With the release of the NSX, Acura introduced the “A-badge”, a stylized pair of calipers—a tool used for exacting measurements to imply that Acura vehicles are built to precise and demanding standards.

 

The Honda NSX, badged as an Acura in certain regions

 

Despite a strong start in market acceptance for the Acura brand, sales suffered in the mid-to-late 1990s. Some critics attributed this decline in part to less inspiring designs, which were re-branded Japanese-spec Hondas, such as the Acura Vigor in 1992. Additionally, during this time Acura switched to an alphanumeric nomenclature formula, dropping the Legend, Vigor and Integra titles, following the lead of the NSX sportscar. The 1996 3.5 RL, which replaced the popular Legend, and the Vigor became the 2.5 TL and 3.2 TL, and was regarded by many as the epitome of this problem, namely because the alphanumeric designations were more anonymous than the former Legend, Vigor and Integra titles, which had grown into their own cult followings.[7]

 

The parent company, Honda, was also feeling the results of the decline of the Japanese economy, due to the Japanese asset price bubblethat took place during the 1990s and into the 2000s. This period is known in Japan as The Lost Decade.

 

During this time, the NSX also lost sales as Acura made few changes from its original 1990 trim. A year later, the Integra sedan was withdrawn from the Canadian market, replaced by the market-exclusive Acura 1.6 EL, a rebadged Honda Civic/Domani. The Integra sedan continued to be sold in the United States until 2001 (in name only, the model it was replaced with, the RSX, was simply a rebadged left-hand-drive version of the JDM DC5 Honda Integra).

 

Despite these letdowns, Acura gained prominence in the 1990s with a young group of customers: “tuner” enthusiasts. Parent company Honda’s reputation with this demographic as a maker of “easy-to-tune” and “rev-happy” engines rubbed off onto Acura, and the Integra became a popular tuner car.

 

2010s: NSX, update

See Honda NSX second generation

 

2000–2003: TL, CL, RSX, MDX

The Acura 3.2 TL

 

 

Beginning around the year 2000, Acura experienced a rebirth which was catalyzed by the introduction of several redesigned models. The first of these models was the 1999 Acura 3.2 TL, an upscale sedan. Critics suggested that although 3.2 TL did not outdo its competition in any one area of luxury cars, it offered a well-rounded blend of sportiness and luxury.[8] These characteristics, combined with the TL’s competitive price, proved very popular with consumers. Subsequent Acura models have followed a similar philosophy of offering lots of standard equipment and very few options.

 

First generation Acura MDX

 

 

Another refreshed Acura introduced in the early 2000s was the MDX, a popular three-row crossover SUV based on the Honda Odysseyminivan. The MDX replaced the slow-selling SLX, which was little more than a rebadged Isuzu Trooper. The MDX was a car-like crossover SUV with limited off-road capability that catered to the demands of the luxury SUV market. It was given top honors by Car and Driver in its first comparison test against seven other SUVs.[9] Other cars in Acura’s line-up during this time included the 3.2 TL, 3.2 CL, RSX (formerly the Integra hatchback), and the NSX. By the late 2000s, Acura had dropped the inclusion of engine displacement numbers in its vehicle designations, retaining a simpler, two- or three-letter designation instead (e.g. 3.5 RL became RL). The 1999-2003 TL have been plagued by transmission and other problems.[10]

 

In 2001, a new coupe, badged as the RSX was introduced to the Acura line up. It was a replacement for the outgoing Integra. The RSX is a rebadged Honda Integra (DC5) from the Japanese market. As a result, the RSX is technically a new generation of the outgoing Integra. Much like the Integra, the RSX was a hit in the tuner market. However, at the end of 2006, the RSX was taken out of the Acura line up, subsequently in the Japanese market as well. It is not known why the RSX did not continue to be sold as the Integra in Japan, however, the reason that Acura gave for the cancellation of the RSX is that Acura wishes to move up in the luxury brand, thus cannot sell a car that is mostly driven by teenagers.

 

2004–2006: RL, TSX, RDX

A new TL debuted for the 2004 model year, featuring sharp, Italianate styling and a 270 hp (200 kW) V6[11] measured by the then-current SAE standards. The new TL increased sales dramatically to 70,943 American units in 2005.

 

Also around the same time the Acura TSX was introduced. It was essentially a re-badged European and Japanese market Honda Accord loaded with features. This model became the only 4-cylinder sedan in Acura’s line-up (with the exception of the Canadian market Acura CSX, which replaced the EL in 2006).

 

2005 Acura RL

 

In 2005, a new RL was introduced with a 300 hp (220 kW) V6, improved styling, and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), a system capable of sending almost all of the RL’s power to just one wheel in a turn. The second-generation RL appeared on Car and Driver’s Ten Best list for 2005, and also garnered an CNET.com “Editor’s Choice” When the RL was introduced, it did not perceive Acura as being on par with its German rivals and expected more value from the Japanese marque. The damage from Honda Japan’s alleged hubris was done, even though Honda Canada has since reduced the RL’s price.[12]

 

Acura’s new models—particularly the TL and TSX—were well received by the motoring press and became Acura’s top selling vehicles. The TSX was on Car and Driver’s Ten Best list from 2004–2006.

 

In 2006 Acura introduced a small SUV which was based on its own unique unibody chassis called the RDX with models becoming available to U.S. consumers in August 2006. It is powered by a turbocharged 240-hp 4-cylinder engine and, like the RL, uses Acura’s SH-AWD system. The model is available in two versions: Premium (the standard offering), and Technology Package (an upgraded offering with a GPS navigation system). A completely redesigned MDX became available in the fall of 2006 with a 300 hp (220 kW) V6 engine and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive.

 


2007–present: ILX, TLX, RLX, RDX, MDX, ZDX

 

First generation Acura TSX

 

Acura re-introduced the TL Type-S for the 2007 model year. 2009 marked the all new TL and TSX models as well as a mid-year model update for the RL; all three made their debuts in the 2008 calendar year. Acura planned on redesigning the RL by 2011 as well as announced the creation of a brand new luxury crossover vehicle called the ZDX, previewed by the concept of the same name.

 

The ZDX was the first Acura designed in Acura’s design studio located at Torrance in Southern California. The ZDX was designed by Michelle Christensen and based on the Acura MDX using that vehicles 3.7 litre V6 engine (300 bhp) and SH-AWD system. A common misconception is that it is based on the Honda Crosstour which was based on the Honda Accord rather than the bigger and more complex underpinnings of the MDX. It is also the first Acura to be completely built in North America. The production model of the ZDX made its debut in the Orange County Auto Show in Southern California on October 15, 2009. The concept behind the ZDX is that it is a “four door coupe,” and the design emphasis of the body of the car is like a “pulled back slingshot.” Another prominent design aspect of the ZDX is the wide rear shoulders above the rear wheels. The ZDX went on sale in December 2009.

 

2012 Acura TL

 

Acura initially had plans for the third generation of RL to be a rear wheel drive V8 sedan for its flagship, but shelved the plans in the wake of the 2008 economic downturn.[13]

 

Acura announced new TSX wagon in the 2010 New York Auto Show and the car is due to go on sale in Fall of 2010. The wagon version of the TSX is based on the wagon version of the Euro-spec Honda Accord which has been in the European market for some time. However, Acura did not announce any plans for the third-generation RL.

 

For the 2010 model year the MDX models received some slight exterior changes and increased equipment levels. Mechanically the engine remained unchanged but the transmission was updated from the previous 5-speeds to 6-speeds including steering column mounted shift override paddles. This new transmission was shared with the ZDX.

 

In 2012, Acura introduced a new model called the ILX which is based heavily on the Honda Civic platform. It shares the same 3 power train variants from the Civic: the 2.0L, 2.4L VTEC and a 1.5L Hybrid. It also unveiled the Acura RLX Concept, a replacement for the RL sedan, at the New York International Auto Show. The ILX went on sale in May 2012 in the United States as a 2013 model.

 

Third generation Acura MDX

 

Also in 2012, Acura “reinvented” another model, The RDX concept. For the new model, Acura dropped the 4 cylinder turbo for a 3.5L V6. When the official 2013 Acura RDX was released, it was relatively similar to the concept but had changes in wheels, taillights, and some other cosmetics. A lot of this Acura looks like its brother the ILX. The 2013 RDX doesn’t have the SH-AWD system instead it has “AWD with intelligent control”, similar to the CR-V’s AWD system. The RDX is now available with BASE, BASE AWD, TECH., and TECH AWD.

 

In 2013, Acura showed a 2014 Concept of the MDX. Shortly after, it was released to the public. The MDX competes with the Lexus RX, Audi Q7, and many others. For the first time, American buyers of the 2014 MDX didn’t have to get the SH-AWD model since Acura released the FWD model of the MDX. However the Canadians will have SH-AWD with the standard model of the MDX due to weather conditions. This model also gets the Jewel Eye LED lights similar to the RLX. The trim levels are BASE, TECH, TECH AND ENTERTAINMENT, and ADVANCE AND ENTERTAINMENT. All of these can be equipped with SH-AWD.

 

For the 2014 model of the RDX. Acura drops color Amber Brownstone which was really popular for Kona Coffee Metallic from the CR-V. The new color is a little darker. Changes for the 2014 ILX include the 1.5L engine being dropped and leather now being standard on all trims.

 

2015 Acura TLX

 

 

In December 2013, at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Acura unveiled a Sport Hybrid SH-AWD version of the flagship RLX sedan. It will be the most powerful and technologically advanced vehicle in Acura’s history. This high-end vehicle will come standard with a 310-horsepower 3.5L V6 engine and a pair of electric motors (one for each axle) that generate a combined 377 horsepower through a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Acura technology firsts on the 2014 RLX Sport Hybrid SH-AWD also include an electronic gear selector that replaces the conventional, center console-mounted shift lever with an efficiently packaged push-button array allowing the driver to easily select the desired mode—Park, Drive and Reverse, as well as Sport and Normal driving modes. The new RLX Sport Hybrid will go on sale in mid-2014.

 

In January 2014, at the Detroit Auto Show, Acura unveiled the all-new 2015 TLX sports sedan. This new vehicle will replace the soon to be discontinued TSX and TL sedans. The TLX in the 2.4-liter comes with Acura’s all new eight-speed dual clutch DCT transmission. Meanwhile, the high-end 3.5-liter V6 model will come with the new nine-speed transmission and Super-Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD). The TLX went on sale in the Summer of 2014.

 

In 2015, Acura redesigned the ILX for the 2016 model year. Now with a 2.4L 8-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) instead of the 2.0L 5-speed and 2.4L manual. Added is the signature Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights, LED taillights, updated wheels, suspension modifications, bumper redesign, and new packages such as AcuraWatch Package (includes adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, lane keeping assist system, road departure mitigation, and forward collision warning) and A-Spec (sportier appearance). Replacing the color Fathom Blue is Catalina Blue Pearl.

 

Also redesigned is the 2016 RDX. Featured with the same 3.5L 6-speed automatic with some slight adjustments for efficiency and hp/torque boosts. The RDX gets the Acura Jewel Eye LED treatment as well. A new suspension is added to “solve” the shock failures of 2013-2015 models. A new Advance Package is being offered with the inclusion of upgraded wheels, parking sensors (front and rear), rain-sensing windshield wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, remote start, ventilated seats, and foglights. Acura is making foglight an option for those lower trims such as Technology Package and Premium. AcuraWatch is also now being offered throughout the line.

 

Marketing

2016 Acura NSX

 

The Acura logo, introduced in 1990 for the 1991 model year, is, according to Honda, a caliper – a design tool used for measuring[14] that can also be interpreted as a skewed “H” (for Honda) or a stylised “A” (for Acura). The logo that was originally authorized without approval by Soichiro Honda did not contain the small horizontal bar joining the two vertical pillars—thus, it did not form the letter “H”. Soichiro Honda ordered the 5,000 badges already produced to be destroyed, including prying off the emblems applied to 309 cars already (US-spec Integra, Legend, and NSX models).[15]

 

Acura’s current marketing slogan is “Precision Crafted Performance[16].”[17] Recent models include Technology, Advance, Type-S, and SH-AWD trim levels. Technology and Advance models typically come with the latest hi-tech features such as keyless start and a blind spot information system. Type-S and SH-AWD models are performance-oriented, with a substantial increase in horsepower compared to the lower trim levels. Some models, such as the TL, also combine trim levels (i.e. “SH-AWD with Advance”).[18]

 

Acura began an association with Marvel Entertainment in 2010, upon release of the film Iron Man 2, which featured a ZDX after the ending credits. On April 20, 2011, Acura and Marvel announced a promotional campaign, making Acura the official brand of Marvel’s fictional S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.[19] Soon thereafter, several Acura models—such as the MDX, ZDX, RL, and TL—appeared in the films Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger. In the 2012 film, The Avengers, Iron Man (played by Robert Downey, Jr.) drove an exotic sportscar by Acura, made specifically for the film,[20] rather than the Audi R8 he previously drove. It was rumored that the car spotted during filming was a concept for the second generation NSX,[21][22] however, a different-looking 2012 Acura NSX Concept was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show, on January 9, 2012.

 

From 1995 to 2007, Acura sponsored two WTA Tour tennis tournaments, both named the Acura Classic.

In 2012, Acura was the presenting sponsor and official vehicle of the Sundance Film Festival.[23]

Acura also has a ‘Mobility Program’ that ensures drivers who are disabled are safe in their vehicles. The program offers cash reimbursement towards the cost of adaptive equipment for disabled drivers.[24]
