Best Value / Best Luxury Sedan
By Walter Flynn on
2004 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
This is my second RL. A totally
reliable luxury sedan which I
rate 'best in class' and price
competitive (especially now with the
dealer discount of $3,500). I like the
traditional body style (unlike the car
review critics) and believe it is a
much better 'value' purchase over the
much pricier Lexus and Mercedes
equivalents. Honda products are just
clearly a better performing and more
reliable car over any other make.
Change the oil and rotate the tires and
it will run like a clock for 100,000 +
miles like my old RL. Please do not
change the body style too radically in
Fit and finish. Interior cabin is
superb and quiet highway ride. The V-6
powerplant, while slightly
underpowered, is technically superb.
The voice activated NAV system is great.
Like many RL "loyalists" a few extra
ponies would make it the "perfect
machine" and would clearly move Acura
up the list of car magazine reviews. I
do NOT believe a body style is needed!
