Amazing car

Vehicle: 1998 Acura RL 3.5 Premium 4dr Sedan

This has got to be my favorite car of all time. It has been a rock for me! As a single girl I need a reliable car that would not break down on me. This car was more than worth the total cost I paid. I have a 98 3.5RL and it has never broken down on me and I drive a ton of miles. I am currently at 325,000 miles and it is still going strong. I have taken good care of it and have had oil changes consistently. I highly recommend one of these cars!

Continues to provide an excellent ride & reliability even after 10 years.

Always reliable. Even after ten years, the build quality of this is incredible. Leather, paint, and all interior trim pieces are still in great shape. I have test driven several cars in the last two years and none offer anything new or better quality. When driving this car, there is a tangible perception that you are experiencing engineering at its best.

I have owned this car since new. It's been an outstanding performer. Always reliable, inexpensive to maintain. It replaced a 1990 Acura Legend, also a great car. The RL is more of a cruiser, not too athletic, but high on comfort. I get 26 mpg on premium fuel. Looking to replace it finally at 148,000 miles.

The car has been perfect except for a brake problem - rear brake on right is wearing faster than others - dealer has failed to fix so far.

I am very picky about vehicles. I have always loved this Accura. I have to trade it in now and hope I can find something that suits me as well!

A lot of people like to compare RL to LS430 or E430 or whatever. The fact is, that LS430 costs pretty close to $60K, a premium of about 25% over the RL. If Acura were to compete in that price class, t...

Headlights have been a very defining things in Acura/Honda lineup since the early 90s. Was there another mainstream car in 1990 or so with single lens headlamp like Accord did? Many automakers continu...
