Five of Six Acura Models Win Consumer Guide(R) Automotive Accolades

Torrance, Calif. 01/04/2005 -- Three Acura models, the TL performance luxury sedan, the TSX sports sedan and the MDX luxury SUV were named "Best Buys" the highest rating possible, as part of Consumer Guide(R) Automotive's annual listing of Best Buy and Recommended vehicles. The RSX sports coupe and the RL luxury performance sedan were named "Recommended" (vehicles that also represent outstanding values, but fall just short of "Best Buy" status) in their respective categories.

"It's a tremendous honor for five out of six Acura models to be recognized as either a "Best Buy" or "Recommended" vehicle by Consumer Guide." said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "Consumer Guide is a trusted consumer resource for auto buyers and being honored is reassuring to Acura buyers."

Consumer Guide Automotive's editors tested over 200 vehicles throughout the course of the year in a variety of settings including, stop-and-go driving, long trips and commuting and evaluated them on their ability to meet everyday driving needs. Vehicles were judged on attributes including performance, economy, reliability, ease of use, comfort and price. On the basis of this testing, "Best Buys" and "Recommended" choices were designated in 17 vehicle
classes. Vehicles judged to offer the most overall value when compared to their direct competition were designated "Best Buys."

The TL has been honored in the Premium Midsize Car category for each of the past six years. The MDX was named a "Best Buy" in the Premium Midsize Sport-Utility Vehicle segment for the fifth straight year. In its first eligible year, the TSX was named "Best Buy" in the Premium Compact Car segment.
