Basically very reliable

Vehicle: 1997 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan

Bought the car at 29,000 miles and now have 144,000 miles. The only problems have been both back window motors, front struts went out at about 85,000, rear struts are also out. Now, i have a broken motor mount somehow to the tune of $725.00. I have really enjoyed the car, though it does have poor cornering manners. Recommend replacing the timing belt as called for in the manual.




Rock solid

Bought the car as a lease return. The car has a great ride along with good road feel. Didn't have a repair until it had over 140k. I now have 169K. The leather interior still has no cracks. I use 87 octane gas. No problem. I can't find a good reason to buy another car. The 3.5 RL has lousy resale making it the best value in used car value.




Quality vehicle

I was running through Edmunds while looking to purchase my wife a new Acura and thought i'd place a review in for my acura. i can't say anything bad about it. i bought it used in 2000 and it's now 10 years old and still looks incredible. friends are baffled on how well it looks, how well it drives and how reliable it is. need i say more.
