Good Value? Yes. Great Car? Hmmmmm...

Vehicle

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

Review

I am a BMW 7-series and Benz S class owner. Also had Escalade previously. The RL looked unique in design and the interiro was impressive at first. Factory refuses to address design flaw...exhaust stains the rear fender and no response provided. Stereo system about the best I've ever heard in a car...first-class. Like the 6- cylinder performance and road mileage. Tends to rumble in low gear early in the day. Dealer hasn't fixed yet. Lots of interiro rattle from rear window shade. Dealer has not fixed. With MSRP arounds 50 or a little less, a good value. But I don't know I would get another.

Favorite Features

Sound system. Cruising performance.

Suggested Improvements

Bigger trunk. More interior space. Better quality build...knock off the interior rattles and noise. Re-design so exahust does not stain rear fender (especially in white or lighter cars). Factory/dealer response has to be much better. This is a Luxury division, not a Honda.
