Best Value / Best Luxury Sedan
By Walter Flynn on
Vehicle2004 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewThis 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 2005!
Best FeaturesFit 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.
Worst FeaturesLike 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!
