Yes. They are a better quality made vehicle.

Well, I would respond, but i don't think my answer would be Acura-te. But, I'll try to Ford-ify my answer. I believe Acura is more reliable, mainly because it's made elsewhere than the US.

Acura's generally have better luck with engines, powertrain, and features while Fords have stronger bodies that are more rust-resistant.

Really, they are both top-end vehicles.... it mostly depends on how well they are treated.

Oh... and PS... Acuras are made in the USA... the MDX for example is made in Lincoln Alabama.

Yes. It has been known for years now Japanese cars are ranked most reliable than any other American or German car. Especially Acura/Honda. Acura all the way!

They both make good reliable cars. about 10 to 15 years ago i would say the Acura, but with the technology today and quality standard they are pretty much even. it all really depend on who it is taken care of and how sensible it was driven. and to correct some unknowledgeable people here, all cars are pretty much made here in the US somewhere. they don't import cars in mass amounts like it use to be. some are still imported but most are produce here in North America somewhere.

For 5 years every weekend i was getting overtme replacing/rebuilding manual and automatic transmissions in Acuras , we never had a run of bad transmissions like that when i was with domestic car company's, but we had our share of problems though ,, basically I'm saying there's good and bad in all car companies with different models so buy what you prefer!

Generally speaking, Fords last longer. Let's just face it...anything that uses a timing belt is junk. No quality automaker would build $50,000 SUVs and use a rubber belt for something so critical as the camshafts. That means the engine needs a $1000+ repair (if you can't do it yourself) every 60-100k miles. No Ford I've owned has ever needed that, because they use chains. Likewise, when was the last time you ever saw an Acura with over 500k miles on it and still all original? I've never seen one with more than 250k.
