2004 Acura 1.7 EL Touring 1.7 EL from North America
A sure winner
Nothing at all!
I love this car, everyone that sits inside always comments what a nice luxurious car it is, leather seats, heated seats… etc… sometimes they comment… Honda right?..... in which I correct them while booting them out at the next stop light; it’s an ACURA!... hahahah.
Anyhow… just like to report that I have had no major problems with my car, I have only performed regular service as needed advised by my Acura Dealer, oil change, tune up, and recently at 105,000 kms replaced my brakes and tires.
The Acura dealer where my car is serviced has been very honest to date. When the car was purchased, I had asked the question? “Do my tires and brakes need replacing or servicing?’, the answer was, no, plenty of tread and brakes left.
Three years later (2009), I just replaced both my brakes and tires. However this decision was completely up to me, I was never pressured in any way. I drive my car each day about 120kms, driving a windy aggressive mountain side, traveling at speeds of 90km/h to 110km/h. Overall the engine could use more horsepower, but I have to admit I have had five passengers loaded in my car and have little or no whining from the engine traveling up steep hills.
It’s bad to hear that others on this site have not received equal customer service from dealership, especially the girl with the gas needle problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
