Mercedes quality without the pretense

2001 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Review

This is my daily commuter car, for which purpose it is flawless. I have had absolutely no problems with it, except I have had to replace the special tires I put on it (I put wide rims with wide tires for style). My wife's Mercedes 300e is boring, with vague suspension characteristics and a lousy sound system(Bose, but still lousy) by comparison!

Favorite Features

Superior cabin air quality and HVAC system--best I have ever had. Very comfortable seats, dynamite sound system, great tracking due to FWD. Standards include heated seats, sunroof, ESP, TCM, ABS, Xenon,6-CD player and cassette. Nav system is fantastic.

Suggested Improvements

The standard wheels look like they belong on a Buick. I added Borbet wheels w/wide tires = sports sedan! Rear-end styling is bland. The engine could stand a boost. I am always trying to justify a more expensive upgraded car, but can't seem to!
