2 quick tips to help keep your car clean!


Between kids, pets, friends, and yourself, the condition of your car's interior is always in peril. So, how do you keep it clean when you've got kids spitting up and spilling, pets drooling and tracking in dirt and people eating four-course meals in your car? Here are a few tips that will keep your Acuraas clean as possible.


The first, and possibly the easiest step, is to always have a trash bag on hand in the car. You can keep it in the trunk, or someplace convenient in the back seat. It is great for keeping fast-food bags, cups, trash, even occasional wet clothes or muddy shoes from doing harm to the leather seats or floor mats. It also helps when it comes to the convenience of having a clean car. One bag to dispose of and you're done!




Next, be sure to schedule a regular time to clean your car. Even if you can't quite commit to cleaning once a week, even a few times a month can really make a difference when it comes to the appearance of your car. Wiping down the dash and steering wheels, a quick vacuum, and a little elbow grease can fights stains, discoloration, and improve the eventual resale value of your car!

Why the Acura MDX is a truly smart buy

When looking for a luxury SUV, buyers should expect more from their manufacturer. Simply slapping a luxury price tag on a car doesn't make your car instantaneously better, or even a smarter purchase. Instead, Acura believes that luxury buyers deserve more. That is why the MDX should be considered the best value in the luxury SUV market.




The interior of the MDX allows drivers and passengers alike the chance to enjoy the quality materials, without sacrificing the functionality of the car. Autoblog.comwas quoted as saying "It's a nice place to spend time, featuring high-quality Milano leather on the seats and steering wheel, soft-touch plastics on the dash and nicely arranged strips of wood trim." Overall, the MDX offers a well thought-out interior. The controls are mostly concentrated around the bottom of the two displays, and are easy to reach. Visibility is excellent, as are this SUV's supportive, comfortable leather seats. The addition of both heating and cooling functions, as well as 10-way power adjustability, makes the MDX a great place to sit for extended periods.




At the end of the day, the Acura MDX should be on the shopping list of every single consumer in the midsize luxury SUV segment. It offers an excellent value in a market segment that isn't known for being affordable, and provides value where others provide consistent upcharges.



Acura Master Certified Technician Award


Congratulations to Kyle Costabile, for becoming an Acura Master Certified Technician. He joins the elite group with Mike Sadlowski and Mick Yee.


Acura: Where luxury meets practicality
The 2015 TLX made its grand entrance last month, and critics have been gushing over it ever since. Most of the time when you are in the market for a luxury car, you have to choose between an undersized practical vehicle, and a fully equipped car that is reminiscent of driving a yacht down the street. However, Acura has been hard at work making sure that drivers can have a practical choice that has all the amazing features you would expect to have in a car of this stature. Here are a few highlights of what the TLX will be bringing to you soon.


According to the New York Daily News, the TLX "shares its long wheelbase with the TL but loses several inches off the overhangs, giving it a nice, solid-looking stance without compromising interior space." With slick new LED headlamps, elegantly rising character line in the body, along with the tapering window-line and tidy rear end, the 2015 TLX is easily the most handsome new Acura to appear in a decade.


The cabin feels just as roomy in front and back as the outgoing TL, and there's a marked step-up in quality. The TLX reeks with quality with optional Milano leather, lots of soft-touch materials, real alloy and wood grain trim. When it comes to features, you bet there will be heated and ventilated front seats, Bluetooth connectivity, keyless access, navigation, real-time traffic, a seven-inch touch screen display, and an amazing surround sound system. While we could talk for days about how amazing this car will be, the real proof will be when you step inside and feel the difference the TLX makes. Luckily, you won't have to wait too long to try one out on the lot.




Acura MDX and Acura RDX Awards

We want to take a moment to brag about some of our family members: The Acura MDX and the Acura RDX.

Anyone who has driven an MDX and an RDX already knows the meaning of true joy, but let us tell you something you may not know: Our pride at the MDX and RDX's achievements isn't just all in our heads. They've got the awards to prove it.

MDX

AutoGuide.com Utility Vehicle of Year Award

This one is pretty self explanatory (and not surprising for Acura MDX owners).

"It's never an easy decision to give an award to a luxury car because they obviously come with top quality finishings and plenty of high-tech features, but what impressed us about the MDX is just what you get for your money," said AutoGuide Editorial Director Colum Wood.

He's of course referencing the class-leading fuel economy, the uncompromising 290 hp engine, and the comfort and quietness all 7 passengers will enjoy during your car rides.

RDX

2013 Polk Automotive Loyalty Award

The Acura RDX is such a great car, and people love the experience of driving it so much, that it creates loyal Acura brand advocates.

This means that because of their experience with the Acura RDX, people went back and bought another Acura that was the same make, model, or manufacturer. And this isn't a based on a judge's opinion, it's based on actual purchase and leasing data.

U.S. News and World Report 2014 Best Cars for the Money Award

Each car won a U.S. News and world Report 2014 Best Cars for the Money Award, the MDX taking the "Best Luxury 3-Row Midsize SUV For The Money" Award, and the RDX taking the "Best Luxury Compact SUV For The Money" Award.

"The MDX and RDX continue to win accolades for their outstanding combination of exhilarating, performance, great fuel efficiency, and outstanding value on a luxury scale," said Jeff Conrad, vice president and general manager of Acura Sales. "With the five-passenger RDX and new seven-passenger MDX, Acura has unquestionably two of the most competitive luxury SUVs in the market."

And we tend to agree.
