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

Review

The 05 RL is a fine automobile. The main complaint I have is on the transmission. The car does not downshift when slowing down to corner. As a result, the car will shudder at low speeds until you begin to accelerate and the transmission and the engine finally get back in sync. I have taken the car back to the dealer several times for the problem, they have installed the new software patch to solve the problem. But it does not work any better. I have called Acura's national service organization and had them review it and they say it is working per "specifications". It was a nice way to say they have blown it on the spec.

Favorite Features

Acceleration at highway speeds is great.

Suggested Improvements

Fix the transmission/engine software so the transmission downshifts correctly
