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

Review

I have found the new RL to be a pleasure to drive. The technology is outstanding, with Voice Control that is superb. You can control the Nav system, Climate Control system, Radio, Information screens and Bluetooth enabled phones WITHOUT removing your hands from the steering wheel or your eyes from the road. The interior is well laid out. Controls are located logically, where you expect them to be. The halogen headlights with the adaptive front lighting system and fog lights produce excellent night visibility. No more fumbling with a remote, since the Keyless Access System does all the work for you. I do a fare amount of driving and enjoy every minute of it behind the wheel of my RL.

very happy with my purchase. this is a solid, super-handling vehicle. i test drove bimmers, audis, and have a c- class. This car is better than those vehicles. And the telematics are just a bonus. Looking forward to getting the AWD in the snow.

It's the real deal! From the user friendly interior controls to the tech- gadgets, it is first class. The car is very responsive and handles extremely well. I have been pleasantly surprised by the large number of people who have complimented favorably on the appearance of the RL. I thought that the car was attractive, but I did not expect total strangers to tell me it looks fantastic. If you are looking for luxury, but want the feel and ride of a sports car, the RL will do the trick.

The RL epitomizes automotive excellence! Silky, solid and smooth best describes it. The handling is incredible as demonstrated by its agility and immediate responsiveness. The ergonomics are text book perfect as evidenced by the size and placement of the Nav system screen and center stack controls. Quality materials abound, nice touches such as electric rear and manual side window shades impress. Voice activated controls actually work and seem magical. It's performance/power is strong! It is without question, IMO, the - "best in class". I have no regrets or buyers remorse. It exudes luxury and elegance - it just feels so good! Highly recommended!

It has set a new Standard for Luxury

It has set a new standard for Luxury. When you look at the price of any of the cars in its class and the price tag that goes along with them, why spend more when everything is standard in the RL and it has so many more amazing features like the Real time traffic, DVD Audio, Active Front Lighting system and especially Super Handlind Rear Wheel drive..nothing else touches it! There is so much value here, and talk about fun to drive!

Thumbs up (pretty much)

If you are looking for a 50,000 car that won't turn heads, the new RL is for you. even in the dealers lot you'll have a hard time telling the Rl from acura's lineup. Get inside though and the fun begins, actually even before I got into the car the keyless entry thing is way cool (no more fumbling for keys). the interior design is very sensible and pleasing to the eye, the nav is great (i'm coming from a 01 mdx) and this rl nav blows it away. The power and confidence of this machine is awesome, pull away from a traffic light and watch people on the side shaking their head asking each other "what was that". my only problem is finding a comfortable position,(coming from a suv)

This RL rocks!

If you're technically challenged, this is not the car for you. But if you love technology and use it, you're gonna love the voice activated technological advances this car offers. By voice one can control the gps system, bluetooth phone, temperature control, audio control and OnStar. Once you figure out how to work everything you never need take your hands from the wheel or your eyes from the road. It corners like the BMW I test drove - maybe better. I think I'm in love!

Black on black - what a ride!

Review

This is the third RL/Legend I have owned from new. I owned my previous RL for 7 years and didn't even replace a lightbulb; my previous Legend had a similar track record. If you are looking for a European style, throw you back in your seat acceleration along with significant tail pipe effect, this car isn't for you - it is silky smooth and it out performs my wife's 2004 Volvo T5 Wagon automatic (barely) - you just don't know it until you look at the speedo and realize the scenery is moving by very quickly, thank you. Quiet! When you push it the unique all wheel drive that transfers torque from left to right almost feels like you are being sucked around a corner. Great ride! Enjoy.

A Mountain Climber

Review

Quiet, smooth-running car with sufficient power. I drove it up a narrow, twisting, dirt road to the summit of a 1,750 ft. mountain (Mt. Riga, Salisbury, CT). Traction and stability were outstanding - even on the steepest grades. Highly recommended!
