Drivers new to the world of luxury vehicles often worry that maintenance costs will prove prohibitive. That’s a problem faced by plenty of luxury brands – especially those from Europe. But are Acura models expensive to maintain? We’re proud to report that maintenance costs for Acura models continue to fall well below the average for luxury vehicles, which is just one reason why they’re so acclaimed by industry critics.

Acura Standards

Acura boasts one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry, and that’s largely due to its reputation for producing high-quality products. Everything from interior features to engine components display a superior level of craftsmanship, which means you shouldn’t need to be faced with an unexpected Acura repair cost in the future.

Routine maintenance like oil changes is suggested, and you can take care of that by contacting your local Acura service center or getting replacement parts from your nearest parts center, but unexpected problems are uncommon.
