1992 Acura Nsx, Low Miles, Accident Free on 2040-cars
Iowa City, Iowa, United States
| For sale is my 1992 Acura NSX. I am the third owner and have owned the car since 2004. The car is an absolute blast to drive and is a serious head turner. I am complimented on the car every time I drive the car, most people think the car is a Ferrari. For those who know the history of the NSX, the "cockpit" of the car was designed based on the F-16 fighter jet which becomes very obvious when you drive the car. The sound of the 3.0L VTEC right behind your head as it revs to 8,000 rpm is pure ecstasy.
The car currently has around 57,000 miles (see photo for exact miles). It is a great AFFORDABLE exotic sports car that has maintenance similar to a Honda Accord. Simple additions I have made to the car are Eibach lowering springs, Koni yellow adjustable shocks, 18" chrome rear wheels, 17" chrome front wheels and a K&N intake. I still have the stock wheels and airbox which will be included in the sale of the car. Only bad thing is currently the stereo does not work in the car, it will power on but does not produce sound. However, I rarely listen to music in this car because I love the sound of the motor.
The car is in great shape and has been very well taken care of. It shifts smoothly with no grinding and handles like it's on rails. I have been a car detailer for over 13 years and meticulously care for my vehicles, you will not be disappointed. Car has been garage kept, never driven in snow, driven in rain less than 5 times and gets waxed at least 3 times a year. I adore the car, but I am finally ready to try something different. Please bid with confidence, this is a well taken care of car.

Not to be outdone by Lexus and its new LF-CC racecar, Honda is also bringing a little more excitement to the Japanese Super GT racing series with its NSX Concept-GT. Yes, just like the original NSX, this racecar will wear the Honda badge in its home market when it replaces the current offering in that series, the non-production HSV-010 GT, which itself replaced the NSX in the series back in 2010.

Looking exactly how we'd imagine a race-prepped 2015 Acura NSX to look, this racer is mean and sexy at the same time, and it will be powered by a racing hybrid system with a turbocharged four-cylinder mounted behind the driver. No word on power output, but it will compete in the GT500 class, which restricts power output to 500 horsepower. Unlike the Lexus racecar, the Honda NSX Concept-GT will being competing this season starting with this weekend's race at the Suzuka Circuit before running the full 10-race 2014 season. Scroll down for the short press release.
The Acura ILX just can't seem to catch a break. The Japanese automaker recently decided that the ILX Hybrid would no longer be offered in the US for the 2015 model year. Now, a possibility for fires has also cropped up in the compact luxury sedan. Acura has announced a recall of 14,078 examples from the 2013 and 2014 model years because the headlights could overheat and ignite the car. The company also issued a stop-sale for examples still at dealers until they can be repaired.

The campaign covers ILX and ILX Hybrid models with halogen projector headlights from specific build dates. The problem is that the headlights aren't cooled sufficiently when the cars aren't moving. After several hours of sitting with them on, it's possible for the lights to build up so much heat that they melt and potentially cause a fire.
To Acura's knowledge, there was only one case of an ILX actually catching fire due to this problem, though. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defect notice, a car was idling at a dealer for about two hours when the model went up in flames. The automaker brought the vehicle in for a detailed investigation to find what caused the blaze.
There are certain vehicles on sale today that are affected by what I call 'Camry Syndrome.' Named after Toyota's ubiquitous family hauler, Camry Syndrome affects a fair number of cars and trucks, many of which are exceedingly popular with consumers.
The issue I have with these vehicles is that while they're adequate, they lack ambition. Their looks are clean and reasonably attractive, but they're not particularly stylish, let alone adventuresome or - heaven forbid - polarizing. Their interiors are comfortable and well screwed together, with the sort of popular features that consumers expect at a given price point. Their engines are decently powerful and vocal enough to set the heart very slightly aflutter, yet they're not too thirsty. Their transmissions are invisible and their rides are best described with whatever buzzword synonym Joe Consumer might come up with for "sporty" or "luxurious." In short, they're boring.
In reality, provided they sell well, there's really nothing wrong with automakers building Camry Syndrome vehicles - they're reasonably competent at everything and clearly meet a need. The problem is that I want some aspects of my vehicle to be better than others, because contrast breeds character. I wish someone at Acura felt the way I did when it redesigned this MDX for 2014, because for me, there's so much of this premium crossover that's merely middle of the road.
