2004 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is our 5th used RL. All have been bullet proof. While it lacks the go of a V-8 it still has good performance with excellent comfort. Excellent sound system and navigation. Averages around 20 mpg. Is a great highway cruiser and is wife's favorite car. It's no wonder it is hard to find a low mileage one!


Favorite Features

Comfort and navigation.


Suggested Improvements

A dream but would like a RWD V-8 in this body style. Not crazy about the new smaller RL. Seat controls on door, quieter or "better sounding" engine, stronger brakes.

2004 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Since I have been driving Acuras since 1996, all I can say is that they are very reliable cars. All the bells and whistles one could wish for come standard with the exception of a navigation system. Your mother would love it as well as your child.


Favorite Features

Automatic seat adjustment with memory, automatic tenperature control, seat warmers, traction control and a Bose audio system with cd and cassette systems.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any.

Review

Pretty Good Gas Mileage, Great for off the Line, Ok passing, when punching there is a large blank spot of no speed 3/4 of the pedal pushed. Tough Leather, I think it will last forever!! Love the STANDARD heated seats and Navigation!!!


Favorite Features

Standard heated seats, Navigation, Wheel and Body Design!


Suggested Improvements

Performance, And Acura has already fixed this withe the New RL from 227HP to 300HP. This car, still gets up and boogies!!

Review

I was fed up with high maintenance $$$ of my BMW. Refused to pay high price $$$ for Lexus. A friend, car salesman, suggested Acura RL which has everything but is not flashy! Got it for a steal "brand new" on ebay! I admit it doesn't handle like the BMW, BUT its a better value for the cost. I actually like the more classy, conservative look of the 04 vs the "all- look-the-same" look of the 05!


Favorite Features

XM, NAV, In-dash 6-CD, seat memory.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel gauge with miles remaining before out of gas. Trip timer(s) Lower octane fuel + better gas mileage
