Did you know an Acura extended warranty can save you from unexpected costs even after your original Acura warranty has expired? The first step is learning what your current Acura warranty covers, so you can make an informed decision regarding your protection—and get the most for your money.

Some of these instances may even void your warranty, so carefully read your owner’s manual to make sure you don’t accidentally lose your protection.
Keep in mind these Acura limited warranties only cover faulty parts—normal wear and tear isn’t covered. Also, repairs and replacements that your auto insurance would normally cover, such as flood damage or damage after a collision, isn’t under this warranty.
Acura’s Reliability and Repair Costs
No car owner wants to find himself stuck with surprise repair costs. If your Acura warranty doesn’t cover a repair or replacement, or if your warranty expires, it’s up to you to foot the bill. Your car’s reliability becomes more important as it ages.
Is Acura known to be reliable? According to the 2016 American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI), Acura placed last among 24 surveyed automakers and saw an 8% decrease from its 2015 ACSI score. In Consumer Reports’ comparison, Acura went up six spots in 2019 but then dropped eight spots in 2020. That means you should do research on your specific Acura model to get a good idea of reliability.
That said, it’s normal for cars to have maintenance costs and the occasional repair. These are some common Acura repairs for a variety of models:
