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


Review

If you want to be pampered, this is the car to purchase. Though not short in performance, its strength is its smooth effortless ride and its on board technology. Best navigation package in the market with a full compliment of voice activated systems.


Best Features

Navigation System Voice activation Audio system Cabin layout


Worst Features

Needs a little more kick in acceleration

Review

I just love my car. I have driven others and owned other more expensive cars and none came close to the overall pleasure I get from my rl. I love all the instrumentations and all the extras that come standard with this car. It is the best I have ever had. I like it even better than my corvette.


Worst Features

needs better gas mileage

Review

Comfort on the road is outstanding. Visuals as far as instrument panel are perfect. Room in back seat is outstanding. Also love the gps and the voice activation system. Also the best sound system i've heard, better than my 430 mzb.


Best Features

gps, xm stero, keyless entry system. trunk space is great and the car's styling is great.


Worst Features

I'm having a problem with the power outlets. they don't seem to work with my verizon power cord, and my laptop. it is very frustrating when I can't charge my phone or laptop. I wish AMH would get their act together and correct the problem.

Review

Have now owned new Acura RL for one week. LOVE this car. The V6 is quicker than I thought it would be - it really flies, albeit not as pulse- raising as a BMW or Audi. LOVE the tiptronic - can really zoom in low gear. Have averaged 22.5 mpg in mixed suburban/highway driving. The ergonomics are spectacular. Absolutely the best overall VALUE in its class, no question.

Review

This car really has the best of everything. Luxurious and roomy, yet responsive and fast. Quiet, yet possessing an unbelievable sound system. Simple to operate, yet loaded with features such as handsfree Bluetooth telephone, real-time satellite traffic and XM radio. And best of all - it's all standard. There is no other car in this class - not BMW, not Mercedes, not Lexus, not Audi - where you get what the RL offers for $50K. When you get done with all the upgrades needed on other models to even come close to matching the RL, you've already moved into a whole different price range. You just simply cannot go wrong with this car, and its a pleasure to drive.


Best Features

Real-time traffic, XM Radio, Keyless Ignition and Entry
