Is Acura More Reliable than Honda?

Is Acura More Reliable than Honda?

 

Honda and Acura are two distinct car brands, but they share the same parent--Honda Motor Company. With the same parent company, they share a lot of similar features, including look, style, safety, parts, and reliability. However, they also have their own advantages and disadvantages. Acura vehicles cost more than their Honda counterparts but not without good reason.
 
 

Acura vs. Honda - Reliability

 
Acura - Wikipedia
 
Honda is known for its reliability and dependability, which has made it one of the best-selling brands in the world. Made by the same company, Acura also offers increased reliability over other car manufacturers. In a head-to-head comparison, it would not be fair to say that Acura is more reliable than Honda. They are equally reliable.
 
Acura is known for luxury, so that parts found in the interior, on the exterior, and under the hood are of a higher quality, and therefore at a higher price point, than those found in a Honda. This means that when a repair is necessary on an Acura, it costs more than a repair on a Honda. Because reliability ratings often compare the price of a repair, it is not fair to say Acura is less reliable than Honda because a repair to an Acura costs more.
 
Both Honda and Acura offer reliable vehicles that will get drivers where they need to go without issue. However, an Acura is a more expensive vehicle than a Honda, so corresponding routine maintenance and unexpected repairs will cost more. In an annual maintenance comparison between the two, Honda vehicles cost $428 in maintenance and repairs over the course of a year while Acura vehicles cost $501.
 
 

Acura vs. Honda - Durability

 
In the same light, Acura vehicles offer increased durability over Honda vehicles. Because they are initially made with higher quality parts, they are going to last a very long time with regular maintenance and care. The difference between Acura and Honda durability can be summarized in kilometres--Acura vehicles can go an additional 100,000 kilometres or more beyond what a Honda can offer. This means several more years of no auto loan costs.

Acura vs. Honda - What Sets Acura Apart

 
Acura vehicles are really set apart from Honda vehicles based on the luxury that they offer. Honda vehicles are practical, and that is what a lot of people want. However, Acura offers something beyond the normal car experience, and it brings along increased reliability and durability as well.
