An Adult Car
By bobbycar on
2000 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan
After driving/riding in any other
vehicle(eg, BMW 740), I'm immediately
surprised by the smoothness of the RL.
The car handles very well on the
highway @ 80-90 mph - precisely,
quietly & smoothly - with four adults
in the car & all their luggage in the
Only one option-DVD navigation. It
doesn't cost another $5,000 to get a
sunroof, heated seats, xenon
headlights, etc. Everything else is
standard. The seats are very
comfortable. I like the headlights -
between the xenons & the foglights, the
road is very well lit up at night.
As options, a 260 hp V6, a ~4.2L V8
with 330 hp & full time all-wheeldrive.
The AWD option would reduce the FWD/RWD
debate, & additional engine options
would placate those who want to spend
another $12K for a V8 (LS430 @ $55K . .)
