We are talking about the beautiful Japanese – Acura TLX. Well, what else can I add? As a true mistress of roads, the car does everything on its own, from acceleration to cornering

However, this mistress-car on the roads of Russia appeared with some delay. Rumor has it that Japanese Akura is a young premium brand. But, as it turned out, one can argue with this point of view.

But speaking of Akura, it’s worth saying that she is the most-most of all her kind. Although, many already had the opportunity to be closer to her through the MDX SUV. And the car got its history from the life of everyone’s favorite Sedans, which became famous and popular in the markets of North America.

The question arises, what class can be assigned to a Japanese beauty? Speaking of dimensions, it is larger than the Lexus GS, slightly smaller than the Infiniti Q70, BMW 5 Series. Its chassis is an improved and upgraded version of the Honda Accord trolley. It has a 5 liter V6 engine. Probably a bit still similar to the Lexus ES. But there is that same “but.” In Akura, there is a SH-AWD all-wheel drive system with integrated traction vectors that are adjustable. Therefore, it is probably better not to say anything more about its uniqueness. In addition, in addition to all of the above, Akura has a 9-speed automatic ZF, which is already known and attractive to many drivers in the Russian Federation.

Speaking about the design of Acura-car, it’s worth saying that there are no comrades in taste and color. It will seem to someone classically seasoned, and to someone a little outdated. Perhaps this is some new demonstration of the future fashion that needs to be caught. Although, if you meet her on the road, she will win attention, that’s for sure. It has an automatic transmission control button machine, which were previously found only on government ZILs. Its value is 2.5 million US dollars. However, comfort in the car will give the driver an incredible pleasure. Sitting in front of Akura, you can feel the space and freedom. But the passengers at the back will have to feel a certain infringement in their movements. Most likely, they focused on the comfort of the driver.

The car is started by the button, at this moment the driver’s chair moves closer to the steering wheel, then press the “D” button located on the central tunnel. But the built-in collision avoidance system will all the way along Moscow avenues remind you of the terrible “traffic jam” on the roads at rush hour. There is also a cruise control program in the car, which allows you to automatically maintain the required distance to the car located in front. But is it convenient on the roads of Russia – the drivers themselves will say. But outside the city, respected drivers can relax, as Akura can accelerate and even slow down, as well as steer and keep the car in a lane even at bends.

Facing the choice of a car, we determine for ourselves several important criteria that in the future will bring us driving comfort, service benefits, passenger safety.

Among the most common brands of cars on the CIS market, in particular, we will consider the Russian and Ukrainian markets – Japanese and German manufacturers. The variety of comments from the owners of the first and second gives us the opportunity to collect, more or less, true information about what problems drivers face when they purchase a new car from a car dealership. In order to be the most objective in this matter, let’s define a class of cars, since it will be extremely unfair to compare a boat and a ship.

First of all, we offer to compare premium cars of Europeans and Asians, take several models of both SUVs and passenger sedans to understand the picture of the market as a whole. The battle will take place between the Mercedes-Benz GL with the Lexus LX, and the sedans – Volkswagen Passat with Honda Accord, year of manufacture, engine size, of course, the same. Choosing a car that is potentially interesting for a future purchase, the client, having narrowed the circle to several models, looks at the price and quality. What can a car dealership offer besides the metal itself with plastic on wheels?

Here comes the third most important point – after-sales, namely warranty and after-sales service. Having a two-year warranty on the main package of spare parts, in fact, you don’t have to worry, dealerships provide fast and high-quality service for warranty cases, both Japanese and Germans. But, there is a huge BUT. For example, when buying a new Mercedes GL, the company guarantees service at any point in your location, in the event of a breakdown, and now attention is completely free, yet, for the given cost of the car, the services should be exceptional, a pretty impressive bonus, what do you think? What really happens, Mercedes really provides this package of services, only the problem is that if you are outside the city of the car dealership’s territorial location, you will be denied free support. The nearest car dealership is simply obliged to go to you, but within the framework of the fact that we, in the countries of the post-Soviet space, can avoid the fulfillment of obligations that are costly for the store, we hire a tow truck and carry the car on our own for repairs. And here we are deprived of such a nice bonus for the purchase. Lexus, in turn, initially does not provide this service, although it is aware that in non-standard cases, the owner will have to spend money on a tow truck.

As for the cost of the so-called consumables and the cost of maintenance, in this matter, the cost is different. Europeans sell their services more expensive than the Japanese, no wonder the euro has always been more expensive than the dollar, plus, the position of the Germans in the market is much higher. Replacing any parts during the first two years, after a purchase, is made unquestioningly at a car dealership, the event is several times more expensive than doing it on your own in the “garages”, the same with replacing materials that do not fall under warranty replacement. Most motorists use the services of official dealerships, as practice shows, it is more profitable.

A well-known fact, BMW and Mercedes-Benz cars provide the driver with an incredibly comfortable ride, softness and at the same time driving power, in terms of ride quality, few can compete with them, including the Japanese, although Lexus is a worthy opponent in this fight, but still inferior by several points . If we take the Passat and Accord sedans in comparison, the situation here is ambiguous, Honda may be inferior in softness, but in terms of comfort, sound insulation, maneuverability and power – the Japanese, specifically of this model, satisfies the requirements of even the most capricious driver. In terms of fuel consumption, new generation cars are generally similar, but the Japanese, in turn, are making attempts, and quite successful, to produce their cars with more economical indicators. Having dealt with the positive aspects of ride quality, both sedans and SUVs, we can conclude that Mercedes gives the buyer the opportunity to feel like the king of the road, having repeatedly proved his advantages and superiority in driving. As for passenger sedans – a moot point, it is difficult to give a specific assessment of a particular model, in general, they are equivalent in terms of comfort, but the Passat design is several positions lower than the Accord model, Mercedes jeep, in turn, according to many car fans giving a head start to a Lexus car.

If we talk about the number of calls to the car dealership due to another breakdown – the Germans are definitely ahead of the Japanese and many times, especially if you buy a car of Russian assembly. Cars simply do not withstand the quality of our roads, so after the warranty ends, get ready to be a frequent visitor and sponsor of Ukrainian and Russian car dealerships.

Which manufacturer to choose – you choose the comfort and ride quality of Mercedes, or the practicality and accessibility of Japanese car service, rest assured, your choice will be winning.

How not to make a mistake in choosing a used Japanese car

Any true connoisseur of automobiles knows all the Japanese automobile companies and models of their automotive equipment. Today, there is an opportunity to buy Japanese cars, which can be purchased at many car markets from the hands. However, there are a few features that you need to pay special attention to when choosing Japanese cars..

Before you go to the market for a Japanese car, you must definitely invite a friend or comrade with you. If there are no such people, you can hire a car specialist. Two people will be able to notice much more features of specific car models, in addition, the invited specialist will remain calm and calm when choosing a vehicle.

Inspect your favorite Japanese car to start with the body. It is necessary to check whether the vehicle was in an accident, whether there are signs of body repair on it. This can be determined by comparing the shades of paint on all parts of the machine, internal and external. Next, open the hood and doors to inspect the inner surface of the roof. After the repair, the difference in paint tone may be noticeable, as well as traces of paint on wires, rubber parts, and much more..

At the next stage, the geometry of the body is checked. To do this, you need to sit in front of the corner of the body in front and put corrugations in front of your eyes. If the joints are uneven, despite the high-quality paint, traces of deformation will be noticeable. If this method did not help to determine the re-staining, you need to use a magnet. In suspicious places, the magnet will be attracted much worse. This will indicate that a lot of putty was put in this place.

Next, inspect the side members. Usually they are stretched after a blow, but this can still be noticed. Gloves must be worn and parts inspected. Traces of paint, chips and thickenings are direct signs of ongoing repairs. It is necessary to check the doors, the closing of which must be applied the same effort, In addition, they should not be with gaps greater than 3-4 mm.

Make sure that the engine is in excellent condition. Oil film and persistent odor of gasoline should be excluded. If the power unit is diesel, check the lines and the fuel supply system.

You need to look at the color that has a sealant in the engine compartment under the hood. If its color is black or white, then the car has already been repaired in Russia. Japanese experts apply a light gray shade.
