Video: 2010 Acura ZDX Customized For MusiCares Auction (Ends Today!)

A musician's life isn't easy. Like other entrepreneurs, the musician has to hustle, piecing together jobs to make a living, but the earnings can be slim and the competition tough.

2010 Ford Mustang Convertible Makes Good On Safety…This Time

The 2010 Ford Mustang Convertible has now achieved top 'good' ratings from the IIHS in both frontal offset and side impact tests.

Testing Acura’s Super Handling-All Wheel Drive TL (SH-AWD) in Southern California’s Torrential Rain

Life in Southern California just isn't supposed to be like this. Where did the sun and the semi-azure blue of the skies that used to hover so peacefully over my head disappear to? If it's not sunny here then where is it sunny? When will the endless monotony of all these rainstorms finally pass?...Read More»

The Weeklong Test Drive: 2010 Acura RDX

Although it isn't the newest vehicle in Acura's ever expanding fleet that isn't to say that the 2010 Acura RDX isn't full of its own unique delights.

Bluetooth Pairing: Getting Better, Still Sometimes Maddening

If you drive several different vehicles, or have several cellphone or smartphone handsets to juggle, you're likely familiar with the frustration: Not every phone will pair with every new-vehicle system. Whether you're shopping for a new handset or a new vehicle, you should keep this in mind, and...Read More»

2010 Acura TL SH-AWD
Driven: 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD

For 2010, the Acura TL is once again offered with a manual gearbox. But you're probably going to have to special-order it, or at least do some calling and searching to even find one. Why?

Consumer Reports' Annual Auto Survey Sees Gains For Detroit

2010 Suzuki Kizashi
Audi, Acura Buyers Offered $100 To Test 2010 Suzuki Kizashi

The 2010 Suzuki Kizashi has been a fairly big hit with auto journalists. Our own Bengt Halvorson gave it an impressive 8.2 rating and favorably compared it to the Ford Fusion, the Mazda6, and the Subaru Legacy, but Suzuki has more upmarket aspirations for the new sedan. Specifically, Suzuki wants...Read More»

Sedan or Hatchback? Which Is Best in Case of a Dog Emergency?

This may all sound like a far-fetched concept (pardon the dog pun) but if you own a medium to large sized dog what would you do if that dog became utterly immobilized or passed away at home? Would you feel comfortable locking him or her in the trunk or trying to open the folding pass thru seats so...Read More»

2010 Acura RDX
Driven: 2010 Acura RDX

Cutting through marketing hype, the Acura RDX is one of relatively few crossover vehicles that actually do feel like agile sport sedans—especially if you'd like to keep the price well under $40k. That is, provided you're one of those people who won't consider wagons like the BMW 328i Sport Wagon...Read More»

Acura Announces TSX Sport Wagon

A couple of months ago, we mentioned that Honda was looking to bring an upscale wagon to American showrooms.

Honda, Acura Offer Domestic Partner Benefits

Honda is one of the most popular auto brands among LGBT consumers, so it's slightly surprising that the company only recently began offering domestic-partner benefits to all of its employees. (Sales and marketing staff got the option in 2008, but manufacturing folks weren't brought on until this...Read More»

2011 BMW 5-Series Touring Wagon Rendered

The past 48 hours have been big for wagons. Apart from the buzz surrounding the 2011 Mercedes Benz E-class Wagon, there's also been news of the Cadillac CTS-V SportWagon and Honda's likely U.S. launch of an Acura wagon based on the popular Acura TSX. Now comes a new rendering of the next-generation...Read More»

Euro-spec Honda Accord Touring (Acura TSX)
Acura TSX Wagon Considered; Benz C-Class Wagon Off The Table

Generational biases are nearly impossible to overcome when it comes to cars and image, and what types of cars are hot or not. At least until recently, much of the Baby Boomer generation, which has held most of the new-car buying power, has been decidedly anti-wagon. My generation, the young side of...Read More»

Honda May Bring Acura TSX Wagon To American Showrooms

Since the advent of customized vans in the late 1970s -- and subsequently SUVs in the early 1990s -- wagons haven't gotten a lot of attention from consumers. True, many companies continue to produce them, but they typically lack the snazzy, front-page appeal of crossovers and other sporty...Read More»

2010 Ford Taurus Pushes The Luxury Envelope

The 2010 Ford Taurus is a sweet ride, and by many accounts it's more classically stylish than previous Taurus iterations. On the lots, it'll go head-to-head with other full size sedans -- for example, the Chrysler 300, which is also priced in the upper $20s and features the same low roofline/high...Read More»
