Acura set a new all-time single month record, selling 18,547 vehicles and shattering the previous record of 17,285 set in March 2004 by 7.3 percent and finishing 16.8 percent ahead of last May, the division announced today. Year-to-date, Acura sales rose to 80,556, up 20.2 percent versus 2003.

The TL performance luxury sedan and the TSX sports sedan both set new monthly sales records. The TL was Acura's top-selling vehicle for the eighth straight month, setting a new May record of 7,177 units, eclipsing the existing record of 5,825 set in May 2002 and surpassing May 2003 by 52.6 percent. TL has set four consecutive monthly records and year-to-date sales are up 44.0 percent at 32,508 units, surpassing last year by 9,931 vehicles. The TSX sports sedan also set a new all-time monthly sales record. Up 63.6 percent compared to last year, TSX sales of 3,585 units surpassed the previous record of 2,938 vehicles set in July 2003.

"The TL continues to set new records and along with strong sales of the TSX and MDX, has propelled us way ahead of last year's record-setting pace," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "With the economy and consumer spending picking up during the last quarter, we should see strong sales throughout the rest of the year."

Continued strong demand for the MDX luxury SUV helped boost monthly sales to 4,909 with year-to-date sales of 23,967, up 4.1 percent from last year.
