Acura continues to be on the cutting edge of technology, supplying the first vehicles to offer in-dash navigation systems and the first to provide Bluetooth technology standard on all models.

From the sloping rear haunches that curve seductively around the aesthetically pleasing tail lamps to the hidden rear door handles to the aggressively styled front fascia, one thing is very clear about the 2011 Acura ZDX. This is not your ordinary SUV or crossover. In fact, it shares more with works of great art than with most utilitarian family workhorses.
The 2011 Acura ZDX was designed from the outset to be bold and to appeal to a very unique buyer looking to make a similarly elegant visual statement. But just because you don’t want to lose your car in the mall parking lot doesn’t mean you have to be brash and buy a yellow sports car. Because despite its concept car aping exterior appearance, the 2011 Acura ZDX is actually quite spacious and practical.
The cargo area boasts two removable side panels which were designed so owners of the 2011 ZDX could carry their golf clubs down to the country club with ease even without folding down the split rear seatbacks. With the rear seats folded there is 57.3 cubic feet of cargo room available, so just because the ZDX looks rakish doesn’t mean it isn’t suitable to take on antiquing excursions on the weekends.
Effortless power is also part of the 2011 Acura ZDX package with a standard 3.7 liter 300 horsepower/270 lb. feet of torque V6 engine putting down power to all four wheels via the inimitable SH-AWD system. Acura’s SH-AWD (Super Handling All-Wheel Drive) is unlike systems you find elsewhere because it offers superb grip not only in extreme weather conditions but it can also apportion torque back and forth between the individual wheels during acceleration in cornering maneuvers on dry roads.
So what is the end result of all this in the case of the 2011 Acura ZDX? Well, thanks to a sporty yet compliant suspension set-up and steering that betters many German rivals for feel, the 2011 Acura ZDX really is as fun to drive as it looks. Let’s just say that the ZDX doesn’t have that fastback silhouette just for posing purposes, although using it for such an endeavor would be perfectly understandable.
But don’t think for a second that Acura didn’t make the interior of the 2011 ZDX a very special and unique driving environment. The dashboard is partially covered in leather and arcs like a painter’s brush stroke in front of the driver and passenger. A full length multi-panel glass moonroof keeps the interior feeling light and airy even for rear seat passengers who enjoy plenty of leg and headroom thanks to some very clever packaging you have to see to believe.
The 2011 Acura ZDX starts at $45,465** and comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission which affords it EPA fuel economy estimates of 16 city/23 highway* with a 21 gallon fuel tank ensuring excellent cruising ranges. Technology Package equipped models add in-dash navigation, a back-up camera and the excellent Acura/ELS premium audio system, priced at $50,145 with fully loaded Advance Package models coming in at $56,195.**
*Based on 2012 EPA mileage estimates. Use for comparison purposes only. Do not compare to models before 2008. Your actual mileage will vary, depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle.
**Prices shown are Acura suggested retail prices only and do not include taxes, license or an $895 destination and handling charge. Acura vehicle accessory costs, labor and installation vary. Dealers set their own prices. Please consult your selected dealer.
Q. Is it bad to drive on overinflated tires? What could happen?
A. Over-inflated tires reduce handling, ride and stability. They also wear faster in the middle, so you’ll end up having to fork over big bucks to get them replaced sooner than you would with properly inflated tires.
When you over-inflate your tires, they’re literally bulging. The center part of the tire tread is pushed out by the pressure. It’s shaped more like a doughnut than a tire, which means you have less tread touching the road. Less tread means less grip. Some may say that reduced surface area may reduce rolling resistance, but tests have proven that this theory does not hold up on the road. You lose more in damage to your tires than you gain in reduced rolling resistance.
When tires are over-inflated, the tire is also harder and more firm, which means a rougher ride. Overly hard tires can’t absorb little imperfections in the road, so the riders (and driver) feel each and every one. Imagine riding a bike with wooden tires instead of rubber.
The deformation of the tire also leads to premature wear. The car’s weight isn’t properly distributed on the tire, so the part of the tread that’s hitting the road is going to wear faster than it normally would with properly inflated tires.
Do yourself and your tires a favor and follow the inflation recommendations marked on your tire. Embrace the PSI!
While the Scots may have invented the game of golf, Americans have perfected the golf resort. Phenomenal picturesque settings, championship layouts designed by the world’s great architects, and plush amenities are staples of the best golf resorts in the United States.
Here are golf resorts that are universally celebrated by major golf publications as among America’s best:
An AAA Five Diamond Resort Hotel, the American Club in Kohler, Wisconsin exudes Midwestern opulence at every turn. The exceptional golf menu includes four championship golf courses designed by Hall of Fame architect Pete Dye. Most notable among the layouts are Whistling Straits, which evokes a distinctly Irish feel with its rugged coastline setting, and Blackwolf Run, a layout that runs through a river basin. Both courses have hosted major national championship tournaments. After a long day on the course, the resort’s Kohler Waters Spa is a welcome reprieve that offers a long list of soothing treatments.
Set along rugged cliffs on the Oregon Coast overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Bandon Dunes offers a phenomenal seaside golf experience with four exceptional golf courses. The Bandon Dunes Course designed by David McLay Kidd is perched on a bluff more than 100 feet above the ocean. Bandon Trails, celebrated for it undulating dunes and towering pines, is a Ben Crenshaw and Bill Coore design. Pacific Dunes, designed by Tom Doak, has all the elements of Scottish links land golf including natural grassy waste areas and uneven fairways. The newest course, which debuted in 2010, is a Tom Doak and Jim Urbina design located on oceanfront terrain.
A legendary resort built in 1898 in the North Carolina sandhills, Pinehurst Resort has 8 golf courses on its 2,000-acre property. Host to numerous national championship professional and amateur tournaments, the resort offers superb golf, accommodations in a variety of settings, and a European-style spa. Its headliner course is No. 2, a Donald Ross designed masterpiece that will host the U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open on consecutive weeks in June 2014. Amenities include Pinehurst shopping village, tennis complex, croquet lawn, carriage rides, fitness center, afternoon tea, boat rentals, and equestrian facilities.
Situated near Charleston, South Carolina, on a barrier island, this resort has five award-winning golf courses and a variety of accommodations and recreation activities. The most notable layout is the Ocean Course, a spectacular test of skill that has more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere. In 2012, the Ocean Course will host the PGA Championship. In addition to villa rentals and vacation home rentals, the resort’s super luxurious Sanctuary Hotel features 255 rooms and suites dripping with amenities like handcrafted furniture and custom-made beds. Other recreation at the resort includes kayaking, fishing, walking tours, tennis, and boat charters.
Nestled along five miles of private beach off southeastern Georgia’s Atlantic Coast, Sea Island Resort has been one of the nation’s finest golf resorts since its debut in 1928. The Sea Island Golf Club features two 18-hole championship golf courses and the Sea Island Golf Learning Center, which is home to four of Golf Digest’s “America’s 50 Greatest Teachers.” Off the course activities include a shooting school, horseback riding, and tennis. The Cloister Spa is a 65,000 square-foot complex for health and fitness with 23 treatment rooms. Among the accommodation offerings are the 175-room Cloister at Sea Island hotel and the Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club, a luxurious 40-room inn overlooking fairways and the St. Simons Sound.
Are your children tired of the same old PB and J sandwiches for lunch? Are you looking for ways to liven up your child’s lunch box? Don’t be afraid to try different things or introduce new foods into your child’s diet. Kids enjoy crazy combinations just like the rest of us and to them, oftentimes, the stranger, the better.
Try these ideas and include them in your child’s lunchbox. Soon, your child will be saying goodbye to regular old PB and J, and hello to hot dog soup. Seriously. He/she will love it.
Why not try a healthy sandwich like mozzarella and tomato on sourdough bread? Or try a cucumber sandwich with a flavored cream cheese such as chive?
Meatballs are a staple in any kid’s diet. Turkey meatball pitas are a great twist on your every day meatball sandwich. Instead of beef, use ground turkey, which is 99 percent fat free. Instead of marinara sauce, use a yogurt sauce mixed with chopped cucumbers and dill. By switching the usual sub roll for pita, it’s more nutritious and something different.
Try sending your child to school with a kicked up ham and cheese sandwich in his or her lunchbox. Instead of using American cheese, use a sharper, more interesting cheese like Gruyere or Jarlsberg. Instead of ham use prosciutto or Serrano ham. For a condiment, try using honey mustard. For bread, switch to soft-wheat or oatmeal bread.
Turkey sandwiches are healthy and a great item for the lunchbox. If you are sick of sending your child to school with the same old turkey sandwich, why not switch up the ingredients? Instead of iceberg lettuce, use spinach or red romaine. Instead of plain mayo, use a mayo mixed with lemon zest or garlic. Don’t forget to include slices of tomato. And make it fun by turning it into a wrap.
Looking for a healthy soup that’s not chicken noodle? Why not add pieces of hot dogs and bacon to jazz up the usual creamy tomato soup? What kid wouldn’t love that?
Instead of peanut butter and jelly, why not create a Nutella and strawberry sandwich? If you haven’t had Nutella before, you’ll want to run out to the grocery store and pick some up. It’s your kicked up answer to the standard peanut butter. Made with skim milk, hazelnuts and chocolate, this spread is healthy and sure to make any child happy. Even adults will enjoy this one.
