Is It Worth Buying a Used Acura?

January 7th, 2020 by

The simple answer, of course, would be yes. Shoppers can never go wrong, buying an Acura vehicle, new or used. Acura cars and SUVs offer higher levels of initial quality, reliability, and standard features than any other brand on the market today.

Why Buy a Used Acura Instead Of a New Acura?

Even at Acura’s incredible “bang for your buck” prices, not everyone has the budget to purchase a new vehicle. And, while Acura’s tend to hold their value more than most other cars on the road, buying a used Acura often offers substantial savings over going the new car route. Because all vehicles (even Acuras) lose value as they age as well as due to mileage, it makes perfect sense for people who put less than 15,000 kilometers on their car every year to buy pre-owned. New car buyers often learn the hard way, at trade-in time, that their pristine vehicle has lost considerable value, even though it has seen minimal use.

Exceptional Levels Of Initial Quality

Knowing a brand’s or vehicle’s history provides shoppers with a significant edge when it comes to buying used. There’s always plenty of available information to help with decision making, such as the specific vehicle’s repair records, as well as customer satisfaction, and recall data. The 2016 Acura MDX, for example, won the Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for the Money award, along with placing as a finalist for the 2016 Best Luxury 3-Row SUV for Families award from US News and World Report. The Acura MDX also earned a score of 8.2 out of 10 from the same publication. Thanks to its decades-long reputation for reliability and resale value, Honda Motors – Acura’s parent company – won the top spot as’s most awarded brand.

Excellent Cost To Own

Every vehicle’s cost to own depends on its mileage, age, and condition. Thanks to legendary initial quality, most new Acuras require little more than regular routine maintenance during their first two or three years. Fortunately, for used Acura owners, evidence suggests that they too will benefit from the exceptional levels of initial quality offered by Acura vehicles. And, if things do go wrong, Acura offers the best certified pre-owned warranty in the business, at least according to IntelliChoice. Also, in 2019, for the third consecutive year, Autotrader recognized Acura as having one of the best Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Programs among all luxury automakers worldwide. Acura’s Certified Pre-Owned program offers 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain and additional 1-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty coverage. Acura also allows their warranty to be transferred to future owners with no deductible.

Thanks to legendary Acura reliability, exceptional initial quality, and a full line of luxury, performance, and family vehicles, it’s always a good time to buy a used Acura.
