TROY, Mich. - OnStar, the nation's leading in- vehicle communication service is now available in three of Acura's top selling luxury automobiles, including, new for 2003, the Acura 3.2 TL luxury performance sedan and the Acura 3.2 CL luxury performance coupe. The Acura 3.5 RL has offered OnStar services since early 2001.

"Each model year our goal is to improve our vehicles by building on their core strengths: performance, luxury and style," said Dick Colliver, executive vice president, Acura sales. "This year, we've added OnStar to vehicles with the Acura Navigation System to make the 2003 TL and CL the most comprehensively equipped we've ever built."

"We are delighted to deliver OnStar's safety, security and information services to Acura drivers," said Chet Huber, president of OnStar. "The addition of OnStar to these two models is further evidence that Acura recognizes the value OnStar adds to its vehicles."

With this service, subscribers have access to a full range of services, including automatic notification of air bag deployment, emergency services, stolen vehicle location and many other safety and security services. Subscribers also have access to OnStar Personal Calling and Virtual Advisor.
