Automotive Brands Score With On-Point Super Bowl Spots

Watch automotive Super Bowl 50 ads

    Super Bowl 50 ads cost $170,000 per second. Per second.

    That astronomical price doesn't mean that every brand hit it out of the park, though. Looking at you, puppymonkeybaby.

    Automotive-wise, the ads were pretty entertaining, though.

    A standout was the Honda Ridgeline commercial.

    "Talking animals always amount to a well-received Super Bowl spot, and Honda took full advantage of the familiar trope with this Babe-inspired ad for the Ridgeline that featured a bunch of sheep belting out Queen's classic "Somebody to Love." Throw in a talking dog at the end and you have 70 seconds guaranteed to put a smile on even the saddest Panther fan's face." (Rolling Stone)

    Honda's luxury relative Acura also had a good night with their NSX supercar spot.

    Edmunds tweeted that, on their site, searches for the 2017 NSX skyrocketed, up 661%.

    Just behind Acura on searches was Buick's Cascada convertible.

    "Oh well done, Buick advertisers. There is a lot that is just great about all of this. First off, the fact that Odell Beckham is able to get his own Super Bowl commercial is pretty awesome in itself. The catch of the bouquet was masterfully done as well.

    "Then, of course, we have the crown jewel of it all — the nice old lady dropping the, “She Odell’d it.” I mean, does it really get any better than that?" (FanSided)

    Kia also tapped a celebrity for their ad, which was also considered a top spot.

    "Christopher Walken is the perfect celebrity for a Super Bowl commercial. Add that to the perfectly punny concept of having him hanging out in a walk-in, no, Walken closet and giving inspirational life advice, and you have a winner." (Billboard)

    Which Super Bowl 50 commercial was your favorite?

2014 Acura RLX with Jewell Eye Headlights

This is an Acura First. These LED headlights are designed for both beauty and practicality. The “Jewel Eye” look is a trade-mark of the all-new 2014 RLX. They will also be available later this year on the all-new 2014 MDX. Most likely, overtime, they will become available across the Acura lineup.

These headlights are polished so they have a beautiful, stunning look without needing to be turned on. But when they are on, they have outstanding clarity. 20 total lights shine in slightly different angles to cast a brilliant light both straight ahead and also down into the area that fog lights would normally cover. As a matter of fact these new headlights render fog lights obsolete.

A benefit of any LED light is their energy efficiency. These lights will last up to 10 times longer than the standard halogen light and up to 5 times longer than HIDs. There will be less of a power draw on the car which can enhance fuel efficiency.

Ask The Experts: Battery Low Message


What does the Battery Charge Low or the Battery Low messages on my dash mean when they come on?
For vehicles equipped with the Battery Management System , this message occurs when the battery’s State of Charge (SoC) , has dropped below a predetermined level. The message is intended to inform you that the battery requires charging to guarantee proper performance under all conditions (extremely cold conditions, high electrical system demands, etc) .

What conditions make the Battery Low message appear?
Extended time spent with the ignition on , but the engine not running. Driving short trips repeatedly without a longer trip between them . Running high-demand electrical accessories, such as seat heaters, can make this situation even worse. Extremely cold weather is also hard on the battery.

How does the Battery Management System Work?
The system constantly looks at the battery’s charge level and determines the optimum charging rate for the current conditions in the vehicle. It provides a first indicator of low battery charge; so the system m ay occasion ally display “ BATTERY CHARGE LOW ” or “ BATT LOW ” on your dashboard when your battery falls below its optimum level of charge. This helps to ensure that fuel economy and battery life is both maximized. 

What should I do if the Low Battery message comes on ? Does it mean that my battery needs replaced?
If you see the BATTERY CHARGE LOW or BATT LOW message, don ’t panic. It simply means that the battery’s charge is lower than it should be. This can be fixed by taking longer trips between shorter trips, minimizing unnecessary electrical accessor y usage (such as power seats) during short trips, and spending less time using electrical accessories while the engine is not running.

My current Acura RDX doesn’t get the Gas mileage that I was hoping for. How does the new RDX compare?

Answer: The new 2013 RDX AWD represents a vast improvement in gas mileage. The EPA estimates an average of 27 mpg hi-way for the new RDX while it estimated an average of 22 mpg on the outgoing 2012 RDX AWD. The new RDX also does not require 91 octane but does recommend it. Also the new RDX does not require fully synthetic oil.
