Forbes.com article: "Acura: The Honda That Didn't"
 Date: April 07, 2003 10:33
 Submitted by:  Ickes_alternate
 Source: Jerry Flint - Forbes Magazine
 Credibility Rating: N/A


From the article: "What went wrong? It's just hard to score in the luxury market when you refuse to do an eight-cylinder engine, wear undistinguished styling and don't offer a rear-wheel-drive car. Acura's absurd system for naming its cars doesn't help either."
