The Best Car Ever Owned
By Moore on 11/30/08 09:33 AM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have owned 6 different cars including 2 Acuras and have driven at least 5 different types of cars owned by my husband. This is the best car I have owned or driven. I would highly recommend it because of its reliability, technology, and styling. Thank you.

Great Car At A Great Price
By R on 05/11/07 13:47 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I moved from an 02 Audi A4 1.8T Quattro w/ sport package into an Acura RL. All I can say is that I love this car. It's loaded with just about every option you would expect from a luxury car. It handles great considering the size of this car and sharp turns aren't dramatic and feels well planted. The ride quality is great although some might consider it a bit harsh, as for me, it's a huge improvement compared to the A4. Coming from an Audi, I'm used to expecting good material and build quality and this car doesn't disappoint. Just drive the cars you are considering and see which you like better. There's not much to complain about the RL, it's a fine automobile and you can bargain on price.

Great car... but

2005 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Leg room driver's side needs improvement. Large foot block left side prevents extending left leg unless you are less than 5 feet tall. Mileage not good in city driving. Highway mileage is good. Needs more insulation. Hard to carry conversation with back seat riders due to road noise.

Electronics are a problem

Vehicle

2005 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Drives great, but watch out for too many gadgets. Battery drain is a common problem, especially since awkward 2nd key position issue leads to frequent battery drains. Make sure you carry a jump box, I've owned the car for about 1.5 years and have had to jump it 20+ times.

Luxury does not need to cost more...

Review

When you determine the price you wish to pay for a luxury sedan and compare features with peer groups the choice is a snap especially with the all the "ginger bread" tech features. Will drive this car for many years to come... and style it's a beauty.

Review

The ride and the drive are EXCELLENT. Drive 65 mph and you get 30+ mpg Road handling in rain & snow ? Handles without pain. The radio (XM) and the Bose!! Feels like you are in a concert hall.
