2002 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Car is well build, reliable, and sound. But a bore to drive try to rent one for a week before driving, Deal discounts abound, but don't fall in love of the deal (I did) OPPS! With deep discounts and an overload of lease returns, your 10,000 mile value will devistate you. Bearly in the black after $11,000 down at purchase and after $9,000. discount of sticker.OUCH! Working hard to trade for BMW or Benz.....REAL HARD


Favorite Features

Good AM radio (seriously sports talk fan) Wife can borrow for extended work trips.


Suggested Improvements

A little of that "maintianing of value" we hear soooo much about from Acura/Honda

2002 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For a 6 cylinder, this car drives great. I always feel like a million dollars when I drive it. No way that anyone should buy a Lexus, Mercedes or Infiniti for thousands more. This car measures up nicely.


Favorite Features

Classic interior and exterior appearance. Stereo is 2nd to none. Quality. Quality. Quality.


Suggested Improvements

Sunroof wind noise. Gas milage. Brightness of dash gages only has two settings.

Review

Car has plenty of power in most circumstances. Indecision of the automatic transmission is partly to blame. Gas pedal placement is slightly encroached by the center console. Some compartments are too small (sun glasses, change) and the seat controls are hard to reach. There was one very small dent that I noticed that seemed to have occurred at the factory. Reliablity has been top notch. Overall I am very pleased with this car. It is very comfortable and I enjoy driving it as well as being seen in it. I was originally going to buy a TL-S but opted for the larger size vs. performance. I am 40.


Favorite Features

Clean crisp design and solid reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Upgrade to a 5-speed automatic to inprove fuel economy and less importantly acceleraton time.

Review

I bought this car about year ago and it still feel like new. I had Lexus GS300 before this car. But I like 3.5RL much better, its much smoother, quite, and better for value.


Favorite Features

nice interior and engine is very quite.


Suggested Improvements

option with V8 would be better. Honda will make great V8s.
