An Acura is a Honda with lockwashers and the price to cover gold.

Honda - Acura

Nissan - Infiniti

Toyota - Lexus

Ford - Mercury

well you get the idea.

CB is right, but didn't explain. The Japanese wanted to compete with luxury car makers and didn't think they could do it under their own brand. Who would pay almost BMW or Mercedes prices for a Toyota? So they developed cars with all the luxury features expected and developed a new brand. Lexus has done well for Toyota, Acura has done well for Honda and Infiniti has done just OK for Nissan. Japanese engineering is great and it's qualty control is the best in the world.

No, Honda didn't buy Acura. Acura IS Honda. Acura was a brand that Honda came up with to get Americans to pay more for their more upscale economy cars during a time when Honda's were thought to be cheap, disposable cars that you drive for 100k miles and then throw away. They knew nobody would pay (then) $30,000 for a Honda, so they created the brand Acura.

So they are the same.

a new acura has a 4yr/50K mile warranty, along with roadside assistance, a 4 yr. unlimited mileage warranty on it's battery. Honda has a 3yr/36K mile warranty-I own a 06 tsx, bought new in Nov. 06. It now has 166K+problem free miles.
