Customers’ favorite accessories:

floor mats
Floor mats—Not only do floor mats help keep your car clean, but floor mats from Nissan or Acura are made of high-quality materials that are especially made to outfit a specific model. Because the mats would be coming from the original manufacturer of the vehicle, the mat fabrics can also be a match to the interior colors of the vehicle.

Aero body kits—If you love the look of a sporty car but don’t want to pay sports car prices, aero body kits have been a big hit with our customers. They love the aerodynamic benefits, and the sleek, cool aesthetic enhancements they make to the vehicle.

ground lighting interior lighting
Lighting—Exterior and interior lighting accents not only make it easier to see around and inside your vehicle, but customers love the lighting color choices and the personal flair lighting accessories add to the vehicle. If you have a “signature color” for a business or to represent your favorite sports team, this might be just the thing for you!

spoiler
Spoilers—Finally, our customers who want to blend the natural design or luxury of their car with just a touch of sportiness are big fans of spoilers.

Accessories not only enhance the look of your vehicle, but often will add value to the vehicle. If you are interested in accessorizing your car, there are several ways to go about it.

  1. Individuals can order Nissan or Acura accessories of their choosing online and install the accessories themselves.

There are a number of places drivers can buy accessories for their vehicles.

Essential Smartphone Apps for Acura Owners

Essential Apps for Acura Owners

Last week, we shared our list of Essential Smartphone Apps for Car Owners and this week we wanted to focus on the apps geared specifically toward Acura Owners. These apps are designed to sync and work with the Acura websites, My Acura and AcuraLink®.

  • MyAcura: This app is designed to be an extension of the My Acura website, the online owner’s resource where users can get up-to-date info on their vehicles. The app includes how-to videos for a variety of the brand’s in-car technologies as well as vehicle settings, including how to use the Acura Navigation System, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, and personalized settings. You may also retrieve personal info such as radio and navigation security codes. The MyAcura app is currently only available for iPhone, but is free to download from the My Acura web interface.
  • AcuraLink® Roadside Assistance: An extension to Acura’s AcuraLink®, this app features support for the roadside assistance program. The app allows Acura owners to quickly and easily request roadside assistance, towing services, lock-out assistance, tire changes, and fuel delivery. In addition, the app automatically provides GPS location to dispatched support and can provide ongoing real-time updates to users during an emergency event. The service is free to owners still under warranty protection and available for a small fee to those out of warranty. AcuraLink® is available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry users and is free to download.
  • Acura Accessories: For Acura owners seeking to accessorize their vehicles, this app offers a full list of all automotive accessories designed, engineered, and tested specifically for Acuras. You are able to watch videos featuring the accessories available for each Acura model, learn about the philosophy behind each, and even see what different features would look like on your particular model! Once you link to your specific dealership, you can check availability, pricing, and schedule a time to have the accessories installed. At this time, Acura Accessories is available just for iPad users, but it is free to download from iTunes.

Although we mentioned the next few apps in our last post, they are apps that will complement the Acura-specific ones listed above.

  • GasBuddy: With the cost of gas on the rise, drivers need to think economically when it comes time to pay at the pump. GasBuddy uses your iDevice’s built-in GPS to locate the nearest gas stations and compare the price of fuel at each. In addition, the app allows you to search by city/zip code in order to find the best prices for areas to which you may be traveling. GasBuddy is available for iDevices and is free to download from iTunes.
  • Car Minder Plus: This is the perfect app for managing all of your car maintenance needs, logging repairs, and tracking fuel economy. Keep track of oil changes, tire rotations and even windshield wipers for multiple vehicles–all while monitoring fuel consumption. The app also syncs with iTunes, so you never have to worry about missing necessary maintenance. In addition, the app allows you to email the service and fuel economy records you have stored for sharing with repair shops/dealerships/buyers, etc. Car Minder Plus is available for the iPhone and costs $2.99 to download from iTunes.

Between the Acura-specific apps and the apps that help you with maintenance and finding the best prices for fuel, Acura owners have a variety of resources available to them to help maintain and protect their investment.

If you’re an Acura owner and have tried any of these apps, let us know what you thought of them in the comments below – as always, we love to hear your feedback!
