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


Review

This 2005 model replaced an earlier RL 3.5. It is roomier, faster, adds all wheel drive, adds all the electronics and voice commands you can imagine, the Bose 5 channel surround sound is the world's best. Nice car!


Best Features

300 HP is better than the previous 200, handling is great, stereo is great!


Worst Features

Cabin noise may be a little higher than previous model?

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.

Worst Features

I wish it was seated a little higher from the ground and was maybe a foot longer.

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.


Best Features

All the technology and features for the price.


Worst Features

More power would be nice, but the car isn't slow at all and fuel economy is better than a V8.
