Acura, the luxury brand of Honda, is a common car make on the streets of Orlando, Kissimmee, Hunters Creek and St. Cloud, Florida, and the entire Osceola area. At RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Kissimmee, FL have been fixing Acuras since 1998 and can take care of your vehicle with confidence and efficiency.
Acura was established in the 1980s as the luxury brand of Honda, at around the same time that Nissan and Toyota released their Infiniti and Lexus brands respectively. Acura was the first Japanese luxury brand, introduced under the slogan: “Acura. Precision-Crafted Automobiles.” The first two models Acura released were the executive class Legend and the compact class Integra. Acura’s first full year of sales in 1987 saw 109,000 cars sold. This success inspired Nissan and Toyota to release their own luxury car lines.
In 1990, Acura released the NSX, a two-seat, mid-engine sports car. The NSX was the first car completely made from aluminum and became known as the “Everyday Supercar” because of its ease of use, reliability and quality, which was unheard of for a sports car at that time. Acura suffered a bit financially in the mid-1990s, however, perhaps because of less inspiring designs they released and the renaming of some of their models, making them more anonymous and less known.
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 Acura TL, an upscale sedan, that was released in 1982. Another refreshed model was the Acura MDX, a three-row crossover SUV that catered to the demands of the luxury SUV market. The Acura was given top honors by Car and Driver when compared to seven other SUVs. In 2001, the RSX was announced to replace the Integra, but was taken out of the Acura lineup in 2006.
