When It’s Taco Tuesday in Las Vegas

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

At CardinaleWay Acura in Las Vegas, we love Taco Tuesday.  Even though it comes around every week, it always feels like a celebration.  The crisp taco shell, the shredded lettuce and cheese, stuffed with beef or chicken or beans… Of course, tacos are getting a little more sophisticated, and more and more restaurants are offering gourmet tacos, fish tacos and street tacos. In our service department, we were discussing where we could find the #BestTacosInLasVegas and decided to see what Yelp had to say. Here are a few of their favorites, and ours.

 

Mi Pueblo Taco Shop

This is a humble, family-operated restaurant that delivers authentic tacos and Mexican food favorites made with super fresh ingredients. You’ll find three different salsas available at the salsa bar, and every one is a winner.  Everything on the menu rocks, and the folks who work there are nice and make you feel at home. If you’re looking for the real deal, this is it.  No wonder it’s earned five stars. It’s located at 1920 N. Decatur.

 

Tacos La Carreta

What a great variety of authentic street tacos, including pastor, lengua, asada and chorizo tacos.  It’s a great little hole in the wall, and you don’t come for the ambience.  It’s the tacos that will win you over.  You’ll get nice friendly service at this mom-and-pop taco shop, but alas, no cervesa. $1.50 tacos?  We’re in! 3930 Spring Mountain Road.

 

Jefe’s Taco Shop

This Vegas gem is located inside a Sinclair gas station in the north side at 5700 Sky Pointe Dr. There are only three tables with about 8 chairs.  Sometimes you have to wait, but it’s worth it. Our favorite is the beef rolled tacos with sour cream and cheese.  Mmmm, crispy, tasty and lots of meat. And the only thing better than the food is the service!  Talk about friendly.

 

KoMex Fusion

That’s right.  Think Korean Mexican fusion.  And as crazy as it sounds, it’s awesome.  The food is creative and beyond fresh.  Think kimchi tater tots, Bulgogi bowls, Korean fusion tacos and burritos and classic Mexican, as well.  Pay cash and you save 5%.  Dine in, and you get free chips and salsa.  We’re all over that.  It’s just a tiny place in the corner of a strip mall on Decatur just south of Washington, but it’s a real find. 633 N. Decatur.

 

Visit CardinaleWay Acura

Here’s an idea.  Come see us at CardinaleWay Acura,  Test drive any of our Acura new cars or certified preowned vehicles. Feel like comparing SUVs?  We have a great selection.  We also have the best Acura service technicians in town, who can keep your Acura running great mile after mile, year after year.  After your visit to #CardinaleWayAcura, you’ll have worked up an appetite. Then you can head out for some of the best tacos Las Vegas has to offer.  Yum.

Bring Your Acura to CardinaleWay Acura For These Top 5 Car Maintenance Tasks

Monday, February 27th, 2017

When it comes to taking care of your car, we know there are a few simple maintenance tasks that you could do yourself after watching a video or reading a book. But there are certain types of maintenance best left to the professionals. At CardinaleWay Acura, our factory-trained service technicians are skilled and factory-trained to keep your Acura running like new. Bring your Acura in and let our technicians provide you with a recommended maintenance schedule that will give you peace of mind!

Spark Plugs
Your Acura, like all vehicles, needs clean spark plugs to operate efficiently. Over time, your spark plugs can wear out and/or get covered in oily build-up. This can prevent your engine from working as efficiently as it should. Many copper spark plugs last about 30,000 miles, while iridium plugs can last up to 100,000 miles. To find out how long your spark plugs are likely to last on your vehicle, check out your owner’s manual.

For some vehicles, changing spark plugs is difficult, because of where they are placed in the engine. Our expert service technicians can make sure your spark plugs are in good working order, which will save you money on gas since your vehicle’s fuel efficiency will improve with new spark plugs. Spark plug maintenance can also help prevent a breakdown.

Balance, Rotate and Align Your Tires
To keep your vehicle driving smoothly, you must regularly rotate, align and balance your tires, which requires special equipment. By rotating your tires periodically, you’ll avoid uneven wear and tear.  Tire rotation can lengthen the life of your tires and help you save on fuel costs. If you notice unusual wearing of tires or veering to the left or right, it can mean your tires need to be aligned. Let a service professional perform a proper alignment and you’ll be driving straight again!

Belt Replacement
As a rule, your belts need to be replaced every 40,000-60,000 miles. You can check your owner’s manual to find out the optimal mileage for replacing your belts. However, when it’s time to have the belts replaced, we recommend bringing your Acura to CardinaleWay Acura so our service team can replace them before they fail. Don’t wait too long! Your belts could break, resulting in major damage to your vehicle.

Repair Exclusive Systems
Acuras have special systems that should only be repaired by our factory-trained technicians. When in doubt, bring your vehicle to CardinaleWay Acura.

 

Bring Your Acura to CardinaleWay Acura Service Department

Our Service technicians at CardinaleWay Acura in Nevada can answer any questions you may have and assist you in setting up a regular maintenance schedule for your vehicle. Our experienced and friendly #CardinaleWayAcura staff can also show you our inventory of Acura new cars, preowned and used vehicles.  You can also come check out the new Acura MDX redesign!  Check it out on our website at www.CardinaleWayAcura.com.  We’re your Las Vegas Acura dealer!

Acura ILX Makes the Grade with New Transmission and Suspension

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

When it comes to Acura new cars, no one knows them better than we do at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas. The 8-speed dual-clutch with torque converter of the new 2017 Acura ILX  is a gem worth getting to know and taking on the road.

Mounted on the steering wheel, twin paddle shifters come on all trims of the Acura ILX and deliver quick and smooth shifts to bring the driving experience alive. The torque converter allows for better acceleration. Combined, the dual clutch and torque converter give you total control of your ILX on any type of road and contributes to better fuel efficiency as well.

Smooth as Silk

Also new to the Acura ILX are new amplitude reactive dampers on the suspension system. These dampers provide stability in any road condition. There are two performance zones on the damping system, one to handle smooth surfaces and one that handles more demanding surfaces simply by turning up the damping power to the suspension. No matter the road conditions, you will ride smooth as silk.

 

High Performance Sports Sedan

The high performance suspension system on the #AcuraILX is designed by engineers to provide a refined and responsive sports sedan. Motion-Adaptive Electric Power Steering with Vehicle Stability Assist provides safe, quick and smooth steering. It is responsive and agile, making those curves and turns seamless.

Las Vegas – Not Just Bright Lights

Monday, February 20th, 2017

When you don’t live here in Las Vegas, you might think there isn’t anything else except the bright lights along the four mile strip of Las Vegas Boulevard. All of us that work at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas know better.  We know, for example, that Las Vegas can be the site of some of the most incredible art work known to mankind.

 

Degas to Picasso

While the best in Nevada Acura can be found at CardinaleWay Acura, currently at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino, the best from the world of Impressionist art is on display. The “Town and Country: From Degas to Picasso” exhibit highlights how greats the likes of Van Gogh, Degas, Monet and Picasso, along with others, tells the tale of urbanization in the U.S. and Europe in the 19th Century through the fine art of painting.

Together with the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art showcases 47 works of art by world-renowned Impressionists.

 

Not the Only Game at the Bellagio

Any time you are at the Bellagio, stop into the lobby of the “O” Theatre, home of Cirque Du Soleil, and see the striking sculptures of Richard MacDonald. Each statue features the wonder of movement by the dancers and contortionists of Cirque du Soleil.

Some of the 50 bronze sculptures on display took more than eight years to complete. Not only will you be dazzled by the sculptures, but your mind will bend trying to conceive how MacDonald could capture such physicality.

 

The Art of Acura at CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas

All of us at #CardinaleWayAcura are proud to live in a city that is not just about entertainment, but has a culture that includes fine art. We are also proud to work for CardinaleWay Acura here in Las Vegas, a dealership with stylishly designed Acura vehicles as fine as any piece of art you will find here or anywhere.

Say Hello To Green Car Journal’s 2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

CardinaleWay Acura is proud to announce that our NSX was named Green Car Journal’s “2017 Luxury Green Car of the Year.” This second generation NSX was up against other contenders in its class, such as the Mclaren, BMW and Porsche. Once you see this complicated, user friendly, tech driven sport hybrid, you’ll know why it was awarded its new title.

 

The Meaning of “Green”

The term “Green” might mean something different and be more broad than what you might think. It can especially mean multiple things in the automotive world of critique and design. It is not always defined in ZERO carbon emissions or innovative fuel efficiency. Our NSX, however, excels at both of these when compared to others in the elevated segment. The track to “Green” takes time rather than “leaps and bounds” when it comes to the world of future manufacturing and automotive design.

 

What Makes The NSX Stand Out

Ron Coga, Green Car Journal’s publisher, was astonished at how polished the #NSX drove on the street in “normal” mode. Our Acura manufacturer made sure that the supercar performs just as well on the road as it does on the track. It definitely has two personalities. Ron notes the interior cabin as being supportive yet comfortable, surprisingly quiet and not restrictive as one might expect in a supercar.

 

Come See The NSX At CardinaleWay

If you want to get a first hand feel of the NSX under your feet, head on over to see us at CardinaleWay Acura. Our outstanding Sales Team will assist you in finding your dream vehicle. Visit www.cardinalewayacura.com for specials and additional finance information. We look forward to showing you what the best in Nevada Acura dealership is all about!

Pack A Survival Kit In Case Of Emergency

CardinaleWay’s Favorite Lunch Spots

Monday, February 13th, 2017

Is it just us, or do you think about what you’re having for lunch at 8:30 a.m.? The struggle is real when you realize you left your brown paper bag on the kitchen counter. Luckily there’s a lot to choose from near our CardinaleWay Acura location. Here are our top 3 favorite lunch spots near #WestSahara Avenue.

 

Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza & Grille + 6500 Tavern

This thin-crust pizza joint opens at 11 a.m. seven days a week and even has gluten-free items on the menu. We enjoy the upbeat atmosphere for lunch and after work, we head to the 6500 Tavern gaming room. Happy hour is daily from 4-6 p.m. where you can pick from the Bites menu and take advantage of the $2 off beer and wine by the glass specials. By the way, 6500 Tavern is open 24 hrs a day. Doesn’t get much better than that!

 

Sushi Fever

In the mood for Japanese? This great spot also opens at 11 a.m., just in time for lunch. We suggest starting out with the garlic edamame or gyoza. The California roll is always a safe decision but if you’re the raw fish type, try the Mountain, Volcano and Grand Canyon rolls. My, oh my, they are delicious! We like to finish off with the mochi ice cream.

 

Sonic Drive-In

If you’re looking for something quick and easy, head on over to Sonic. It’s open from 6-1 a.m. so no need to worry if it will be open when you take an early lunch break. Our go-to meal is the bacon cheeseburger or corn dog with a side of tots and cherry limeade. If you need a sweet treat to take back to the office, try the chocolate chip cookie dough master blast. Don’t feel like lunch? No worries. They serve breakfast and coffee, too.

 

Come See Us At CardinaleWay Acura

CardinaleWay Acura is just a hop, skip and jump away from these great restaurants. Once you fill your belly, head over to our family owned Acura Las Vegas dealership for a quick test drive or service appointment.
