Purchasing a pre-owned Acura doesn’t get much easier!
Our customer-friendly focus on shopping is then matched by our commitment to quality vehicles. So out of all the used cars for sale in Phoenix, the expert consultants at AAA Car Buying only select the best ones for our customers.

It’s also important to remember that just because a pre-owned vehicle is in like-new condition doesn’t mean you have to pay a like-new price. Depreciation — the bane of new-car buyers — can significantly reduce the value of almost any vehicle as time goes on. Consider: The typical brand-new car will depreciate by some 20% after its first year on duty, with depreciation rates often jumping past 60% after five years. The bottom line is that buying a used car or SUV can save you massive amounts of money compared to buying a new one.
Oh, and don’t forget about insurance. It’s one of the biggest ongoing ownership costs with any vehicle, but again, you’ll usually pay less when insuring a used vehicle than a new one.
Acura is a brand that firmly believes in better driving through technology, and that’s something you’ll notice in the brand’s pre-owned models, too. After all, the company’s many advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), incredible infotainment resources, and high-tech powertrains are hard to ignore. Acura also stacks up well in terms of upscale equipment compared to many premium used cars for sale in Phoenix. (Note: Exact features vary by model and year.)
In the 1980s, the Japanese Big Three — Honda, Nissan, and Toyota — were all doing fairly well in the marketplace, and that gave their leadership the confidence they needed for a major expansion project into the premium car segments. The result was the introduction of Nissan’s Infiniti brand, Toyota’s Lexus brand, and Honda’s entry, Acura, which first began selling cars in the United States in 1986. Acura got off to a hot start, too, with its Legend and Integra cars helping to propel it past Mercedes-Benz and BMW on the U.S. sales leaderboard by 1990.
That same year saw the announcement of the original Acura NSX, engineered to combine the performance and design of a supercar with the reliability and everyday usability of a high-end Honda. It’s that dedication to offering both performance and practicality that defines today’s Acura lineup!
