CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas’ Car Washing Tips

Monday, August 28th, 2017

Keeping your vehicle clean is an underrated but important habit for you to maintain during your vehicle’s life cycle. Our CardinaleWay Acura location recommends washing your vehicle at least once a month, to keep the vehicle’s value as high as possible.

Don’t Use A Normal Rag

Old material that you find in your garage or closet are not suitable for drying off your vehicle. They may feel soft, but they can easily damage your vehicle’s finish if they’re used a lot. A gentler wash comes from a microfiber cloth, which you can easily find online.

Use Two Buckets

Wiping dirt on your car repeatedly can cause damage to the paint. That’s why using two buckets is a good method to avoid that. Fill one up with soapy water and the other with water. Use the soapy water to apply to the vehicle then rinse it off in the bucket with just water.

Brush and Vacuum Floor Mats

The vacuum doesn’t magically make it all disappear. A stiff brush should be used first to loosen dust and mud.

Don’t Use a Circular Motion

Circles cause small scratches that are extremely hard to fix. It is recommended that you move your towel in straight or z-pattern motions. This is because a scratch is much easier to fix in a straight line.

Clean and Protect Your Seats

Cleaning and moisturizing leather seats is extremely important, especially if your car sits in the sun.

Wear Car-Friendly Clothes

Zip-up hoodies, belt buckles and bracelets can always hurt your paint job if you aren’t careful. Do not wear these clothes while you wash your vehicle and you’ll be happy you did when it comes time to sell your vehicle.

Our staff will be glad to help you with any issues you have and our service team is always prepared to tackle any problems you may have with your vehicle.

CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas’ Three Underrated Vegas Attractions

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Everyone knows the basics of Vegas: see the casinos, the fountains of Bellagio, etc. However, there are some destinations in Vegas that are overlooked and you may not initially consider. Our Las Vegas dealership came up with a few of our favorite underrated Vegas attractions.

The Mob Museum

Las Vegas at one point in time had the largest mob presence in the entire world. This museum shines a light on what the city was like during its infamous 20th Century gangster era. This building is located in the downtown area, a few blocks northeast of the Fremont Street Experience.

Visiting this exhibit will expose you to notorious criminals like Al Capone, Bugsy Siegel, John Gotti and the dedicated G-men. This also includes the other side of the coin with FBI agents like J. Edgar Hoover, Eliot Ness and Harry Anslinger.

New York-New York

It’s easy to spot New York-New York as it features the Manhattan skyline with scale models of the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge. It is so massive that it almost takes up a full block of the Strip!

This attraction recreates the big city experience with a New York-style pizzeria, several bars and multiple shops. The casino is filled with slot machines and table games for you, your friends and family to enjoy. There are other entertainment options like “Zumanity” by Cirque du Soleil and Hershey’s Chocolate World.

SPEEDVEGAS

Many thrill seekers are simply satisfied with playing cards with money on the line but others want a different experience. That’s where SPEEDVEGAS comes in, an exotic driving experience. Located just south of the strip, you can find yourself behind the wheel of a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Jaguar, Corvette and Audi if you like.

We’ve never heard of someone who didn’t enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime driving experience and you’ll be extremely happy you did it.

Visit Us Today!

Our CardinaleWay Acura Las Vegas staff hopes that you can really enjoy your time in Vegas with the help of this list. We also encourage you to visit our Acura location to discover our selection of new and used Acuras. For all of your Acura needs, visit CardinaleWay Acura today!

Acura’s Future Plans Revolve Around The RDX And Hybrid Vehicles

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

Acura has set its new sights on the future in the 2018 cycle and it is going to set a new standard from this point forward. CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas shares this forward-looking vision and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for Acura new cars.

ILX

The redesigned ILX will likely debut in 2018 as the 2019 Model. A new model would use the same 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine to generate 205-horsepower. There is also a possibility that a performance-designed model could be released in the likes of the Civic Type R 2.0-liter turbo four.

TLX

Acura has given this midsize vehicle a new look for the 2018 cycle that added a new corporate grille and new sheet metal in the front and rear. In addition to that, there is a host of chassis and refinement upgrades and a new A-Spec trim package. There is an expected redesign due in 2020 as a 2021 model. There are rumors that it will get rid of the current engine in favor of Honda’s 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder and the 2.0-liter turbo four.

RLX 

In the 2018 year, you can expect a cosmetic upgrade similar to those on the recent TLX update. The six-speed automatic gearbox has a chance to be replaced with Honda’s nine or ten speed automatic and hook up to the same 3.5-liter V6.

CDX 

There hasn’t been much buzz about this China-exclusive vehicle coming to America. If it does, we can expect it to show up in 2019.

RDX

The redesigned RDX is the first major overhaul and will be expected in early 2018 as the 2019 model. This compact crossover will use the same platform as the Honda CR-V and you can expect to see Honda’s 2.0-liter turbo four to replace the current V-6.

MDX

The MDX was redesigned in 2017 with a new front clip and an optional hybrid powertrain. These changes will carry the crossover up until a new looks hits it in 2019 as the 2020 model.

NSX

Everyone is anticipating the various versions of the NSX to hit the marketplace. The models people are looking for is the open-top targa model, an all-electric version and a track-focused Type R model.

This bright gameplan for the future is another reason you should visit your CardinaleWay Acura dealership! You can share this vision with us and ask any questions you may have about our various Acura vehicles and what the future holds. Our Las Vegas dealership is excited to bring on this new wave of Acuras and we want you to be a part of it, too!

Finding The Right Tires For You

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

A common rule of thumb is to never go cheap with shoes, as an uncomfortable pair will make your life miserable. Our CardinaleWay Acura dealership feels the same way about the “shoes” of your vehicle—the tires! Our Las Vegas dealership wants to help you find the perfect tires for you so that you won’t ever cause damage to your car.

All-Season Tires

These are likely the most common and easily the most flexible tires for all four seasons. Deciding between winter tires versus summer tires is a decision that you will have to make. A lot will obviously depend on your area’s weather conditions. Choosing tires with that mindframe will help your vehicle stay healthy.

Winter Tires

Winter tires are shaped a bit differently, as the tread compound is crafted to remain pliable in temperatures below 45 degrees. This feature teams up with widened grooves to give you good grip in slippery conditions. Drivers with rear-wheel drive should think about getting winter tires.

All-Terrain Tires

These tires are made for pickups and SUVs and can be a good choice for each. These kinds of tires give you the option of going off road for camping, hunting and more. The reason they work off road is because there is more space in the traction lugs and grooves of the tread, allowing you to go across rough terrain safely. These tires can also be useful for those who spend most of their time on the highway, as well.

Run-Flat Tires

These are the perfect tires for those who don’t want to carry that spare tire around with them. They are engineered to roll on low tire pressure to ensure safety when the tire is flat. They have a reinforced sidewall that allows it to support the weight of the vehicle without damaging anything else.

Sport Performance Tires

For those who want to maximize the driving experience and bring the ‘racer’ out of their vehicles, these are for you. These tires for speed and precision will respond to your every move and make even the most routine drives a blast.

Visit CardinaleWay Acura of Las Vegas For Tires!

Don’t think twice about visiting our Acura location to see what tires we have to offer. Our service staff is highly trained and will assess your vehicle and driving habits to recommend the perfect tire for you. We also offer routine maintenance checks at our dealership.  We will install your tires on your vehicle and get you back on the road in no time. We look forward to serving you!

The 2017 Acura ILX Is The Car for You!

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Technology

The ILX is packed with intelligent features that help make the vehicle a more fun driving experience. An on demand multi-use display is available with an intuitive touch screen that combines all the controls you can ask for into a 7-inch screen. This allows you to control audio, climate and other programmed shortcuts at your fingertips with no issues at all. A keyless access system with pushbutton ignition lets you unlock the doors, enter the vehicle and start the engine while never taking the keys out of your pocket. It even remembers your preferred seat position and side mirror settings for you and another driver. Automatic climate control teams up with the GPS system to track the sun’s position relative to the vehicle while a solar sensor measures its intensity and changes system output to keep the set temperature for each of the system’s dual-zones. This allows both the driver and front passenger to enjoy the temperature that they want, rather than finding a happy medium.

Safety

Safety is personal with Acura, and it starts with the ACE body structure. ACE stands for Advanced Compatibility Engineering and this body construction is implemented into every Acura model to reduce and disperse forces in front crashes with any sized vehicle. A collision mitigation braking system is available to alert you to obstacles ahead, programmed to provide visual alerts when a crash is possible. It can even brake for you if you do not react in time. Vehicle stability assist comes into play during wet conditions and reduces the dangers of overcompensation while steering by applying brakes at each wheel as needed and when necessary.
