2002 Acura RL Sedan 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

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


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.


Best Features

Clean crisp design and solid reliability.


Worst Features

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.


Best Features

nice interior and engine is very quite.


Worst Features

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

Review

I still have my Legend that is now 10
years old. Not a dime on repairs. Now
this new 3.5 RL seems even nicer. Less
than a thousand miles, but already in
love with the car. Its quiet, smooth,
and very much a luxury car. The build
is quality and the handling is quick
and stable. Not one thing that I can
find as yet a negative. And most of
all a steal at $35.500.00. That is
only 5600.00 more than I paid 10 years
ago for my Legend. What else can I
say, oh yeh who needs a V/8? Power
galore. Hurry go get one, and you'll
love yourself forever.


Best Features

We really love everything about this car, but the Bose sound is really outstanding.


Worst Features

Maybe a little sleeker style, but no complaints here.
