Acura’s support of the non-profit Trombone Shorty Foundation will have a year-round impact on the city’s cultural community by furthering the musical heritage of New Orleans through music education, instruction, mentorship and performance. To learn more, visit our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas dealership.

2017 is also the 18th year Acura has sponsored the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival as the official automotive and main stage sponsor.

“For 18 years the music scene in New Orleans has been a dynamic fit for the Acura brand and we are honored to support the incredible contributions the Trombone Shorty Foundation is making to advance local musicians and maintain the one-of-a-kind musical culture of New Orleans,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president of Acura Sales.

Acura and Jazz Fest
Acura has also been the official vehicle partner of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for the past 18 years. #AcuraMainStage, or “Acura Stage,” has hosted legendary musicians each year at Jazz Fest.

Driving While Drowsy?

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 at 6:52 PM

Have you ever had that strange sensation that you just woke up even though you’d been driving the whole time? Did you know there’s an actual term for that scary phenomenon? It’s called ‘microsleep.’ Microsleep is a very brief state of drowsy unconsciousness that can happen even you think you’re totally awake with your eyes wide open. It happens more often than you think, and is the cause of more than 100,000 crashes every year, according to the NHTSA.  At CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas, your dealer of choice, we want to let you know about the latest technology that’s designed to keep you awake and safe when driving.

Drowsiness Detection Technology
Drowsiness detection systems are certainly not new. Safety technology already exists that can monitor a vehicle’s movements and detect a driver who’s dozing off. The sleepy driver is given a warning sound and a coffee cup graphic. Some systems alert the driver by jiggling the seat. New systems are being developed that work even better.

For example, Bosch is working on a camera-based technology that monitors eye and head movements, body posture, heart rate and body temperature. The system is able to measure body temperature, as well as how many layers of clothing the driver is wearing, so it can adjust the interior temperature to keep the driver alert.

Another promising development is a monitor that detects heart rate changes. Plessey Semiconductors is working on this new technology. Their system works through sensors that are placed in the driver’s seat that can monitor heart rate changes. This technology will indicate when breathing patterns become similar to someone who is sleeping. The system then provides a warning before the driver actually dozes off.

Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas Dealership Wants to Keep You Awake & Alert On the Road
We know there’s no substitute for a good night’s rest. However, we know that’s not always possible. We invite you to come see our inventory of new #Acura vehicles that feature safety technologies designed to keep you alert and safe while driving. Our dealership has the complete line of Acura models, including the sporty RDX and the sophisticated TLX. If you’re shopping for a new or pre-owned vehicle, financing or want to bring your vehicle in for service, we hope you come to #CardinaleWayAcuraLas Vegas. Acura is owned by Honda and we are proud to feature the entire line of Acura new cars.

The Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens Features Japanese Spring

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Monday, May 22nd, 2017 at 6:49 PM

Each season, the tremendously talented horticulturalists and designers who make up the #BellagioConservatory team transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground into a showcase of distinctive seasonal sights and colors of spring, summer, fall and winter. They also feature a special display for Chinese New Year. Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas dealership highly recommends a seasonal visit to these fabulous gardens. This year’s Spring Celebration, “Bellagio Japanese Spring,” is on display until June 3.

Bellagio Japanese Spring
This Japanese-inspired spring display will take you on a journey. The gardens are rich in Japanese culture and include a stunning 35-foot floral Kabuki figure, a traditional tea house, golden temple and 80,000 flowers. The gardens are rich in Japanese culture and tradition.  The Japanese-inspired walkway design occupies center stage and its uniquely designed pattern is in harmony with the traditional Japanese Garden theme.

Over 65,000 flowers are in the Japanese Spring arrangement, including Foxglove, Easter Lilies, Cineraria, Snapdragon, Cyclamen and Calla Lily. The 630 shrubs range from Hybrid Yellow, Nandina Domestica Gulf Stream, Mugo Pine and Selaginella. The outer dressing of the Kabuki figure is made up of textiles and preserved flowers. When the displays are rotated, 90% of the trees, flowers and plants in the conservatory are recycled, to further honor the Bellagio’s commitment to the earth.

Conservatory Seasonal Displays
A horticulture staff of 120 maintains the Botanical Gardens and the entire grounds of Bellagio. The Conservatory season begins with Chinese New Year and features traditional designs of the celebration. Following Thanksgiving weekend, the gardens are transformed for the Christmas season. Bellagio’s holiday display is one of extraordinary beauty.

‘What A Ride’ Marketing Campaign Accompanies Acura 2018 TLX Debut

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Thursday, May 18th, 2017 at 10:24 PM

Acura debuts the 2018 TLX with an innovative, mobile-first campaign created entirely using vertical video. Entitled, “What A Ride,” the campaign takes viewers on a colorful, dynamic and unexpected journey to the hip-hop anthem, “The Movement,” by Kid Ink. The 2018 TLX arrives in CardinaleWay Acura dealership in Las Vegas this June. We invite you to take it out for a test drive.

“Building on the success of the MDX campaign, we’re launching TLX with a dynamic and energetic approach that features rich colors and bold sounds,” said Jon Ikeda, vice president and general manager, Acura. “Over the past year, we’ve established a unique and consistent voice that is resonating with consumers and differentiating our brand.”

TLX Gets Creative
The new 2018 TLX campaign features several commercials illustrating the many new aspects of the performance sedan, using the campaign tagline: “What a Ride.” Here are a few of the commercials.

“Geek + Chic” demonstrates Acura’s approach to performance, using the TLX to show what happens when you combine high-level engineering with a love for driving to create unique behind the wheel experiences. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKLubuI8QTc)

How Much Do You Know About Shocks & Struts?

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017 at 10:16 PM

For example, did you know that your vehicle’s shock absorbers and struts are responsible for the control and handling capability of your vehicle? They basically keep the tires connected to the road, giving you a secure ride. They also keep your vehicle from bottoming out when you hit a pothole or other uneven road surfaces. It’s extremely important to keep your shocks and struts in top condition at all times. That’s why we recommend you include a shock and strut check in your regular vehicle maintenance schedule. Our certified technicians at #CardinaleWayAcura in Las Vegas can do an inspection for you.

What Causes Your Shocks to Wear Out?
Under normal conditions, shocks and struts wear out gradually. However, there are several factors that affect the rate of wear. Shocks are operating in a very hostile environment on the underside of your vehicle. It’s easy for debris and gravel to affect their performance. The kind of driving you do also has a big impact on the wear and tear on your shocks. If you’re mostly driving in the city on straight smooth roads, your shocks are likely to last a long time. However, if you’re driving on winding, muddy, gravel and dirt roads, your shocks and struts could take a beating. For example, flying gravel can easily nick or damage the piston rod allowing grit and dirt to damage the piston seal.

How Do You Know Your Shocks And Struts Are Wearing Out?
There can be several signs your shocks and struts are wearing out. Notice if your vehicle bounces more than three times when going over a railroad crossing. Does your vehicle rock back and forth after a sudden stop? Do you find your vehicle drifting to the left or right when you apply the brakes firmly at high speed? Or does it rock or sway when changing lanes quickly? Any of these are signs that mean it’s time to bring your vehicle in for service. Our Acura-certified technicians can take care of your vehicle.

A Clean Fuel System Provides the Best Engine Performance

By David Sayas | Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 at 9:59 PM

If your Acura has lost its pep, it could mean it’s time to have your fuel system cleaned. Our factory-trained Acura service team at CardinaleWay Acura in Las Vegas can evaluate your system, clean it and get it back to performing its best. We encourage you to schedule regular maintenance check-ups with our service team. They can help you determine the best routine maintenance schedule to keep your Acura performing its best.

 –

How to Tell If Your Fuel System Needs Cleaning

The three components of your fuel system are the fuel filter, fuel pump and fuel injectors. Over time, dirt and other debris builds up in your fuel system. Just like clogged arteries, a clogged fuel system keeps the fuel from flowing adequately enough to power the engine, so you may notice that your engine is not performing like it should. If you notice that your vehicle is losing power, running sluggishly or acting like it’s out of gas, contact our Service department to schedule a fuel system evaluation and cleaning. Maintaining your fuel system improves engine performance as well as fuel economy. It can also prevent damage to the engine and it will extend the life of your vehicle.


Let Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas Service Professionals Clean Your Fuel System
Our service technicians at #CardinaleWayAcuraLasVegas can answer any questions you may have and will also assist you in setting up a regular maintenance schedule for your vehicle. And, while you’re here, we invite you to take a look at our inventory of new and Certified Preowned vehicles. We have the complete line of Acura models, including new, pre-owned or used vehicles. Acura is owned by Honda and we are proud to feature the entire line of Acura new cars. To learn more, please visit our website at www.cardinalewayacura.com.
