2003 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This care drives like a dream.
Everything is beautifully layed out
and the navigation system is fun and
almost always accurate. The fuel
economy, however, is nothing to write
home about. Low to mid 20s per gallon
for a combination of driving.
The navigation system, press a button
that sets all of the seats and mirrors
for easy use by two different drivers.
The trunk doesn't close as solidly as
I'd like. It almost seems cheap,
though it does work perfectly. I'd
also like to see the fuel economy
Brought this car after thinking about
cars for a few months. Was really
interested in buying the Lexus ES300.
Have small children so I knew I would
need a car that was roomy. When I
arrived at the dealership I just looked
for a while before asking for help.
There where no ES or Volvo's S80's on
the lot. (The Volvo was another choice
I was thinking about) Saw the RL in a
distance and immediately loved the look
of it. Even forgetting the look,
(though I'm a stickler for a luxury
style car) the ride was a dream. Of
course I listened to the sales pitch
about it's resale value and great
reliablility. You won't be
disappointed in this baby.
We've only had our 2003 for a month
now but it's been sublime! This car
was not built nor manufactured it was
DESIGNED and ENGINEERED!
No difference between 87 and 92 octane
performance. 0 defects
at delivery and 30 day useage point.
The most solid feeling exterior door
handles. Made in Sayama Japan, (one
of the top 3 auto manufacturing
facilites in the world) etc. ad
Upgrade the steering wheel switches.
The present ones are from the Plebian
Honda parts bin. The ignition switch
has at least 40 degrees of unnecessary
travel. iVTEC for improved fuel
efficiency. (now at 12.8L/100km city
but improving steadily as break-in
Had a Legend 140,000 miles only one
minor unscheduled mx (stuck brake
caliper). The RL is the same.
Bulletproof, excellent ride and
comfort. For thousands less than BMW,
LS430 and Q45 you get the same comfort
