    First Drive: 2014 Acura RLX
    1360947420

    Good. But Good Enough? Spoiler alert: The 2014 Acura RLX is a good car. But that shouldn't come as a surprise. Despite the fact that Acura is subject to a lot of criticism for things like its odd positioning in the automotive landscape, questionable styling choices in recent years, and the fact that, more or less, its products feel like lux'd-up Hondas ...

    Rumormill: Acura RLX revealed in production form by patent filing
    1340321340

    If you're looking for a phrase to capture the excitement of a new flagship sedan, "patent filing" is probably not it.

    Honda can thank Wal-Mart for the automaker's recent victory in a class-action lawsuit over Acura RL models equipped with the company's Collision Mitigation Braking System.

    These are your top 10 worst-selling vehicles of 2011
    1325811420

    Where there are winners, there are inevitably losers. Last year was exceedingly kind to big pickups, sprawling family sedans and SUVs, but not every model came out of 2011 with big sales figures. We took the time to dig through the low-selling models of the past 12 months to find out which vehicles produced throughout the year were the biggest duds. Since ...

    For the 2011 model year, Acura has freshened up its flagship RL sedan. What exactly does "freshened up" mean when it comes to the RL? It may not look like much more than a cosmetic touch-up, but there are quite a few new tricks going on under the nip-tucked skin. The 2011 Acura RL continues to utilize the 3.7-liter V6 engine with 300 horsepower that ...

    Strange But True: Honda Motor Co. reportedly denied trademark for "Acura RL"
    1236864720

    In what appears to be a classic case of sweating the small stuff, the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board have refused to grant Honda a trademark for the term, "Acura RL," which, as we're sure you are aware, is the name of the luxury firm's flagship model. From what we can tell, this means that the Japanese automaker does not hold a trademark for the car's ...
