Torrance, Calif. 04/01/2004 -- Acura set a new all-time sales record this month, selling 17,285 vehicles and shattering the previous record set in May 2003 by 4.8 percent, the division announced today. In addition, the TL sold 7,310 units, eclipsing the March 2001 previous all-time record of 6,922 vehicles by 5.6 percent, while the MDX posted a new March record high.

The TL performance luxury sedan has been Acura's top selling vehicle for the past six months. Year-to-date TL sales are up 43.6 percent at 18,620 units, surpassing last year by 5,825 vehicles. Continued strong demand for the MDX helped the luxury SUV achieve record March sales of 5,194, besting the same month last year by 6.3 percent.

"Despite a somewhat tentative economy, Acura sales continue to increase at a record pace," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, sales. "And next week in New York we will unveil a prototype of the all-new 2005 RL with leading-edge technology that will revolutionize the concept of all-wheel drive."

The hot-selling TSX sports sedan also continues to perform above forecast with sales of 2,206 units. A prototype of the 2005 RL luxury performance sedan will make its world debut at the New York International Auto Show next week.

The monthly TSX numbers seem to be INCREASING from the already-higher-than-projected prior numbers.

I think it had been averaging about 1800 a month, which would mean about 22,000 per year. This current number would mean about 26,500 per year.

The TL continues to do very well. I had thought maybe it was slacking a bit, but I guess not.

I see a lot of TLs and MDXs, and more TSXs, but not as many as the new TLs.

I'm seeing TSX VINs in the 28,000 range nowadays. Anyone want to take a guess as to how high it will reach before it gets "reset" for the 2005 models? (Of course, the trick is figuring out when exactly the 2005 models will come out).

I say it will go up to 39,000.

local dealers have VINs with 27k and 28k numbers. I am guessing it will reach somewhere 40k like larchmont said.

Does that mean VIN's for something like the Camry are up in the billions?

I also would've guessed they got re-set every model year, but really never thought about it before.
I never thought about VIN's or even heard of them until coming on these sites.

Good guess, I think. Might reach 40,000 but not by much.
Yet another classic sign that you are more optimistic than myself.

Or maybe I should say I'm more pessimistic than yourself. :D

Hmmm, I was under the impression that VIN's year digit (the 10th digit) would change to a 5 (reflecting the 2005 model year) and the last 6 digits would be reset.

Guess I learned another lesson for today.
