Lemon Law Attorney in California

Acura Lemon Law in California


Even with an American presence of over 35 years, Acura is still one of the youngest on the market. It’s Japanese automaker Honda’s performance and luxury division, headquartered in Torrance, California. In its inaugural year, the brand sold just under 53,000 vehicles; in 2020, it sold nearly 137,000. Acura was among the best-selling luxury vehicles in the U.S., outselling conventional brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Acura sales dipped in the mid-to-late 1990s; however, dramatic redesigns and the introductions of new models caused the brand to experience a comeback in the early 2000s. In 2010, Acura announced a partnership with Marvel Entertainment in 2010, featuring a ZDX after the ending credits in Iron Man 2. Acura also became the official brand of Marvel’s fictional S.H.I.E.L.D. organization.
