That, and a commercial would be pretty hard to understand if a podcast was playing at the same time as the voice over, right?

Tips for keeping cool when your a/c is broken
If you drive a car long enough, and when you drive a brand like Acura you’ll likely spend many years in it, it’s possible that your air conditioning will eventually take a dive. A/C uses a refrigerant, sometimes called “Freon” for the brand name, that helps to turn the air blowing through your vents to a frigid temperature. If you have a leak, you might find that the cold air isn’t as cold as it is used to be. Naturally, we recommend that you get your air conditioning fixed as soon as possible and have regular inspections, because once it’s dead, it can be costly to repair. But if you’re here looking for tips for keeping cool when your a/c is broken, it’s very likely too late. Read the rest of this entry »

What is Acura’s involvement with the NOLA Jazz Fest?
With new technology comes an increased focus away from things many of us consider traditions. This can be fine for ideas that become outmoded, but can also lead to a feeling of lost heritage. New Orleans is well-known for its rich focus on jazz, but it’s important to make efforts to preserve this cultural heritage or it could be lost. Which is why the NOLA Jazz Fest is such an important annual event. Today we’re looking at Acura’s involvement with this festival as well as other strong efforts to keep jazz alive.

How to stay focused while driving long distances
Do you know what the leading causes of accidents are? You might think that speeding or drunk driving lead the list, but the number one cause is actually driver distraction. When we first begin driving, many of us are aware that we should keep our hands at 10 and 2, or 9 and 3 depending on when you learned to drive. After years behind the wheel, we start driving with one hand, and sometimes even balance the wheel on our knees. Most days, we’ll get away with it just fine. It won’t seem like the risk is worth it if you get in an accident even once. In honor of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, we’re talking about how you can stay focused while driving long distances.
