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.

Understanding the 2017 Acura NSX

Friday, August 4th, 2017

The Acura NSX is one of the most exotic cars in the Acura family. However, with it being such a rare vehicle, nobody really knows what makes it stand out. That is until now, this CardinaleWay Acura description should help you understand more about the unique vehicle.

Driving around curves in the NSX is a pleasure, as it is smooth and responsive around turns like you’re traveling on a cloud. Have no doubt, this vehicle is extremely fast, as it totals 573 horsepower from its twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 and three electric motors. This extreme speed demands great control and it delivers with quick steering that is direct without being darty and this combines with carbon-ceramic brakes to make stops easy.

A unique feature of the NSX is the torque fill which is only found in the McLaren P1 elsewhere. This uses the hybrid drivetrain to dose in electric motor grunt while the gasoline engine builds turbo boost. In layman’s terms, the thrust is seamless with zero flat spots, delivering a driving experience you won’t find anywhere else.

The interior seats are comfortable and provide plenty of space for the legs, head and arms. The windshield is one of the tallest you’ll find on a modern performance car, offering a great vision that you often find in minivans.

This amazing vehicle will be hard to come by for most due to its price, but it represents what makes Acura vehicles so amazing. Our Las Vegas dealership will gladly show you our great selection of Acura new cars as well as used cars. We offer test drives and much more at our dealership and our staff will work with you to find the perfect vehicle for you! For more information, visit our website at www.CardinaleWayAcura.com.

Behind The Wheel Of The Acura TLX

Friday, August 12th, 2016

Acura TLX

The Acura TLX is offered with two engine choices – a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine and a 3.5-liter V6 engine. Both versions come with direct fuel injection and i-VTEC. This makes even the 2.4-liter TLX quite a fuel efficient car with good, sporty performance. The 2.4-liter engine with front-wheel drive generates 206 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm. The performance abilities of the TLX 2.4L is in large part to the conventional automatic transmission torque converter featured in the 8-speed automated manual transmission. The dual-clutch design makes changing between gears swift and smooth. The torque converter helps the car move between gears quite strongly, with minimal lag.

Driving the TLX is enjoyable, with its good performance and luxurious features. The superb NVH qualities of the vehicle makes the driving experience even more pleasing. Steering is decent, although not the best since it’s a front-wheel drive. Even with Acura’s Precision All-Wheel Steer (P-AWS) system which is supposed to help in maneuvering the vehicle through controlling the direction of the rear tires, handling is not as smooth and quick as you would like. Even so, the TLX can handle turns with relative ease.

The TLX is based on the ACE (Advanced Compatibility Engineering) structure, so it is lighter than the old models it replaced. The reduced weight is noticeable in the way the car handles itself. The suspension system on the TLX includes a four-wheel independent suspension – MacPherson strut in the front and multi-link in the rear with front and rear stabilizer bar. Riding on the highway is smooth and the car is easy to control. All in all, the 2015 Acura TLX provides a comfortable, luxurious ride with a sporty performance feel.
