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


Review

I've had my Acura for over a year now and enjoy it very much. I've had no problems with it and love the navigational system, Onstar, and XM radio, all standard features. The Acura won't win a lot of races, but the power is adaquate for my driving, and the ride is smooth, quiet and enjoyable. Lots of people comment positively about the looks of the car when it's parked.


Best Features

By far the favorite features are the XM radio,and the navigational system.


Worst Features

More hand space between the door and the driver seat to adjust seat (I believe Acura has addressed this in 2005).

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


Review

This is my 4th Acura. All are pleasant
and reliable. Car has all features
needed in a luxury car. Classy styling
that tells the world you have something
important, but you are not rubbing it
in their faces. Sat radio not important
to me, but On Star is valuable, as well
as Nav system.


Best Features

In dash 6 cd changer. Nav system. On Star.


Worst Features

Noise from sunroof when closed with shade back. Gas mileage bad in all 4 cars. Front too low for parking lot bumpers. Power seat adjustments hard to reach.

Review

Refined, responsive, and nicely
appointed. Intelligently designed and
well executed. On Consumer Reports Most
Reliable list.


Best Features

Lovely car for the money. Front seats much more comfortable than Lexus. More reliable than Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Jaguar and Mercedes.


Worst Features

Inexplicable minor omissions for this price class. No under hood lamp, for example. Gasoline consumption greater than anticipated.

Review

This is my second RL in 3 years. It continues to
reflect great quality and workmanship. The new 05
will provide the extra ponies needed. A very reliable
car and the service is excellent. Continue to think
Acura just makes a good product. Only negative is
HP and placement of Nav screen which has a
problem with sun relfection.


Best Features

Interior finish, ride on highway and Nav system.


Worst Features

Placement of Nav screen which has been solved on 05.

Review

The Japanese have it together. They
know how to take the best ideas,
perfect them and the processes to
build them, and make an unbeatable
path to market. Unless US
manufacturers can make a significant
paradigm shift and radically change
production methods and processes, we
have given away one more card in the
poker game of World Powers.
