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


Review

This is an excellent car. Very well designed with all the features you need or want. Even better all the technology works and is easy to use. This is vastly different than so many of the other cars in its class. The BMW and Mercedes NAV Systems are hard to use and inferior, the Lexus GS has no back seat or trunk space, and the AWD puts all of them in the shade. It is a quality car for the real world, not a special use vehicle that can only be used part time for some things. The only thing I would add would be some additional torque since the AWD will allow it to be used effectively.


Best Features

Real time traffic and navigation system, Bluetooth, SH-AWD, and 30+ miles per gallon on the highway.


Worst Features

More torque and a 6 speed automatic.

Review

After much research and thinking between Toyota and Acura plus several test drives I decided on the Acura. I must say I am very happy. I have taken several trips from Chicago to Florida with no issues. I have navigation and it is a help and comfort. I once got lost in Milwaukee and the navigation system got me right out of trouble. I highly recommend this automobile.


Best Features

Climate control, Bose sound system, navigation.


Worst Features

Increase adjustability of driver seat and add more adjustability to passenger seat.

Review

My 2005 Acura RL is state-of-the-art with a superior navigation system, live traffic alerts, and terrific voice command design. All of my luxuries come standard. The ride is terrific and wow does it ever take corner well. I have owned Mercedes, Lexus, and BMW in the past - I am now a permanent convert to the Acura RL. Best buy for the money, and, sexiest car I have ever owned. If you want luxury and performance at a bargain price get an RL!


Best Features

Navigation system with simple voice commands and live-time traffic alerts via navigation map. Voice command design keeps your eyes on the road. Keyless entry and operation. XM Radio - superb. Handling on corners and curvy roads makes driving this car fun. Stylish exterior design turns heads.


Worst Features

Develop a hybrid version of this model.
