In a time of financial crisis, selling your car may be hard as there are only a few people who will be interested in spending money for car acquisitions. However, if you have an Acura car, you may have a good chance of finding someone who will be interested in buying your car and also a high possibility that you will get a better than expected resale value. For those who do not know it yet, Acura is actually a line of luxury cars introduced in the US market back in 1986 by Japanese car maker Honda.
Acura cars were sold as Honda’s in other places except the United States because the Japanese company thought that Americans, at that time, would not really be interested to pay about $25,000 for a Japanese-made car, even if it is classified as luxury. the Acura luxury car may not be as renowned as its European counterparts, a lot of people in the West actually like it because of its luxurious features and its affordable price. In fact, you can own an Acura at a much lower cost than its European and American counterpart.
So if you have an Acura RL or TX sedan, you will surely have fewer problems with regard to selling your car. According to many car resale experts, you can actually sell your car for as much as 60% of its original selling price, depending on the model and, of course, the state of your Acura.
If you are selling your car, you have to make sure that when you show it to prospective buyers, it is clean and well-maintained. You will not get the most cash out of your vehicle, if you do not properly preserve it. According to auto magazines, the resale price of a 2006 Acura MDX (with a suggested retail price of $37,000) is in the $32,000-range. This means that its depreciated value can be comparable to that of European-made luxury brands, such as BMW and Audi.
When you are selling your car, especially to a private individual, you have to know the features that make Acura a good car to buy. Some of the innovations that the car maker is proud of include Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (VTEC) and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive, among other things. What’s more, the RL sedan from Acura was named as one of the top ten safest cars in 2006 by Forbes.com.
