American Honda Motor Co., Inc. today reported April 2014 Honda and Acura vehicle sales of 132,456 units—an overall increase of 1.1 percent (-2.8 percent based on the Daily Selling Rate, or DSR*)compared to April 2013.

Acura light trucks continue to sell well above last year’s pace, led by the hot-selling MDX and RDX. However, vehicle supply is becoming a factor as Acura begins winding down production of TSX and TL models in preparation for the new TLX models, which are scheduled to hit the ground later this year.

  • Acura division sales increased 1.6 percent vs. 2013 with 14,122 units sold in April
  • Acura trucks set a new April sales record with an increase of 35.9 percent on sales of 9,536
  • MDX posted another major increase with sales up 80 percent in April
  • RDX sales increased for an unprecedented 24th month in a row, climbing 6.3 percent

“With RDX posting two solid years of continuous growth and MDX sustaining its hot sales pace, our Acura SUVs continue to set the standard in the luxury light truck segment,” said Mike Accavitti, Acura division senior vice president and general manager. “In a few short months, we will unleash the all-new 2015 Acura TLX to reestablish Acura’s reputation for thrilling luxury performance sedans and establish the Acura brand as a force to be reckoned with in the luxury segment.”

*The daily selling rate (DSR) is calculated with 26 days for April 2014 and 25 days for April 2013. Year-to-date, the DSR is calculated with 101 days for 2014 and 101 days for 2013. All other percentages in release are unadjusted; see table for adjusted DSR figures.

Josh Clymer’s 400,000 Mile Acura TSX

Posted by   on April 29th, 2014 2 comments

Josh Clymer's 2005 Acura TSX

Congratulations goes out to Josh Clymer who last week passed 400,000 miles(643,738 kilometers) in his 2005 Acura TSX. To no one’s surprise, the TSX still runs like a champ and has had very few issues over the years.

“there’s no engine swaps, rebuilds or any other major work. In fact the only problems or things I just plain wore out were the door lock actuators, serpentine belt bearing, cooling fan motor and the starter. I replaced the starter because it was starting to slow down. Meaning it took a few extra seconds to start then it used to. It still actually worked just fine. It lasted to 330,000 miles!” Josh Clymer – TSX Travels

Josh started documenting his TSX experience just last year, with the goal of eventually joining the 500,000 mile club. You can follow along on Josh’s blog TSX Travels – tsxtravels.com.

Good luck on your travels Josh!

2014 Acura MDX | Vossen 22" CVT

If you’re wondering what 22″ wheels would look like on the 2014 Acura MDX look no further. The folks over at Acura of Pembroke Pines put a fully accessorized 2014 Acura MDX SH-AWD on 22″ Vossen CVTs. All other things aside, I think this setup looks fantastic.

Also pictured is a 2014 Acura RDX sitting on 20″ Vossen CV5s.
