Best car ever

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I love it in every gas pedal. I love it in every turn. I love it when it is stopped or when it is running. Too good car to write a review about it.

Great downsizing

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I have just recently downsized from much larger and more expensive vehicles. I have taken a huge hit in my business which forced me to look for something nice, but less pricey to own and operate. I almost bought a 2003 Lexus LS430 but I'm glad I didn't. I bought this Acura with 90k miles and to my amazement it runs like a brand new car. There isn't a thing wrong with it and it rides and handles perfect. The great thing is that most people who have these cars are 1 owner, well taken care of cars and if you find one with high miles that is in great shape you can buy it so cheap and you have such a great car for the money. I paid 1/2 of the price of the Lexus.

Vehicle: 2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Our 2003 Acura is the best vehicle we have owned and our previous experience has been with Volvos (850's), Camry's, Buick and Honda. So far, and we have had the car since May 03, we have changed the oil once. The OnStar navagation system is fantastic and it has saved us from getting lost any number of times, not to mention the security of knowing help is available immediately. Strongly recommend the 03 Acura, you won't be disappointed.

Vehicle: 2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I looked at Mercedes E Class, Lexus, Infinti and found this car which was the best in power and handling. It has been the best value car for the money I paid. You need to drive it to see for yourself.




Another good one

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

This is our 4th Acura. Reliability has always been our experience. Keep up with recommended maintainence and experience few if any problems. Price of '04 RL was terrific, comes standard with Navigation system and satillite radio-we would not have purchased them seperately. There is not $15-20K difference in the Lexis, BMW and Mercedes models.

My Audi A6 lease is up soon, and I've decided to go Japanese this time. I'm torn among three choices: 2005 Acura RL, 2003 Lexus LS430, and 2006 Lexus IS250 AWD. I don't want to spend more than $40k. I...

Acura sells over 60K TL per year, about 10-12K RL per year and Honda sells more than 15000 Accords in two weeks. So, TSX will come fully equipped with no 'base model' and only option being NAV. Still...
