Absolutely reliable. Smooth and quiet on the road, OK power. Layout of controls very convenient, esp. sound system controls on steering wheel. Design is very good, my car has been mistaken for Mercedes and Lexus. A tremendous value

I bought the car new in 1998. This has
to be one of the reliable cars ever
built. Routine maintenance and one
window motor replacement is all this
car has ever needed. It's very
comfortable on long trips and easy to
maneuver in the city. Build quality is
outstanding. Inside and out it looks
like the day it bought it. Acura has
earned my loyalty.

I owned both the 1988 and 1991 Acura
Legend. I have been nothing but
dissapointed with the 98 RL. This
year both rear electric window
mechanisms broke. The plastic pulley
wheel in the door (a $1 part) broke
(on both doors within two months of
each other). The cost for each $244.
You can only replace the entire motor
The power is lacking in the motor.
The noise inside is noticeably louder
than both of my previous legends.
On the bright side, it is as reliable
as the sun rising. One turn of the
key and it is ready to get me to work.

I bought new in 1998 and comming from
Jaguar VDP I was a little bias, but it
did not take long for me to appreciate
The ride is very comfortable and handles
very well on bends, I drop a gear and
It's axceleration is more that adequate
to attain highway speeds to allow ease
Have always received compliments
especialy from male passengers on the
ride and competance the car shows at
high speed on the highways.
When the lease ended I bought the car
for my wife and I still enjoy driving it.
A Great Car!

Purchased for daily commuting (all
highway 110 miles RT). Solid and
exceptionally reliable over last 6
years. Only standard scheduled
maintenance and no breakdowns
experienced. Three different Acura
dealerships provided service and loaner
cars without question - a welcome
service from past experiences with
american manufactures. Thanks Acura..
