Review

What's not to like about this car? It's comfortable and classy looking. Big enough for my family of five and it drives so beautifully. By the way, Open Road in East Brunswick, NJ is a great dealership - highly recommended.


Favorite Features

Navigation and XM radio.


Suggested Improvements

So far, none...but will try to think of some.

Review

Actually my lease is a 2002. This car simply is not worth the dollars for the lease. The ride is just OK, the handling is poor compared to the Toyota Avalon which was my previous auto. The performance again, not as good. The interior back seat is too small for the average size man. No leg room. The reliability I have no complaints about.


Favorite Features

Style (Looks)


Suggested Improvements

Larger engine, better handling, more interior room

Review

A very solid car. I like the classic (others call is bland) styling. The 2004 does not have the acceleration of the TL, but the ride in the RL is nicer and quieter. The interior leather on the RL also is higher quality. I looked at a Lexus ES-330 for $33,000ish and a Toyota Avalon at $31,000. The RL at $37,000 was more than I wanted to spend, but I really am happy I did.


Favorite Features

Navigation system, On-Star and XM radio. I just moved to a new city and the navigation system has been fantastic. It doesn't always know the best/fastest way, but you NEVER get lost and always have a map at your disposal.


Suggested Improvements

The gas tank reportedly holds 18 gallons. Twice I have driven with the gas light until the car started stuttering. Both times I immediately bought gas. The car took 16.4. Either it does not hold 18 gallons or the tank design is flawed. With over 1 gallon left it should not stutter.

Review

Last year for this body style for the '04 Acura RL so you can negotiate a great price on the flagship Acura car. It is fully loaded including navigation system, OnStar, heated seats, XM Radio and real wood trim. This car may not turn heads with its dated body style but it will provide you a luxurious, quiet, and spacious ride while providing years of quality and enjoyment from the precision craftsmanship.


Favorite Features

Navigation system, XM Radio, 6-disc CD Changer in dash, On star, heated seats, front wheel drive, dash VERY easy to read and illuminated well


Suggested Improvements

Needs more horsepower, new body style, rear sunshade, rear heated seats.
