2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

While the Acura RL handles extremely well and is generally a solidly built vehicle, I am disappointed by the amount of interior rattles. I traded out of a VW Passat that had no squeaks and rattles into the RL and the unwanted noises are most annoying. The quietness of the cabin just serves to amplify the interior squeaks and rattles. I would not buy another for the price of the car.


Best Features

The technology, the reliability, the SH-AWD, a very accurate navi system, voice recognition, and bluetooth phone connectivity.


Worst Features

Lose the squeaks and rattles, reduce the turning radius, improve the city mpg - 13 mpg in city driving is absurd for a 6 cylinder engine but hwy mpg is double that and add height adjustment and memory for passenger seat.

2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Great autormobile for driver, not so great for passengers. Front passenger seat should be 6 way to go up and down, not just forward and back. Back seat area is small for long trip for two guests. For driver a perfect car,best I've ever owned and I've had them all.


Best Features

Performance and reliability. Great in snow compared to Mercedes rear wheel drive I owned before the RL. Superb handling at high speeds. No rattles after 23,000 miles or problems of any kind.


Worst Features

6 way power seat for passenger. A few more inches in back seat area so passengers can be more comfortable. If no changes is made are made by 2008 I will buy an Audi A8 next time in spite of the price.

2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have had my Opulent Blue Pearl RL for 6 months & have just over 12,000 miles on it. No problems. This is my 4th Honda product. It replaced a Lexus GS 400. The RL has the best integration of tech on the market. Bluetooth, nav voice recognition all blow the comp away. Esp the nav that you can use while driving instead of just in park like the Lexus. The SHAWD is great I live in the south & did not think I needed it ut it works great. Car is a great highway cruiser.


Best Features

Electronics, nav, voice recognition audio. Comfort, keyless entry.


Worst Features

Cooled seats, audio to play std DVDs instead of just DVD audio. Do away with the nag screen at startup. A better iPod integration.

Review

Have been an Acura owner from the first day they went on sale in 1986, this is my fourth, still have my 1992 Legend. I am getting 20 to 22 mpg in daily driving, my 2002 TL type S was about 1 mpg better. If you overlook this car you are missing something very good.


Best Features

Navigation, AWD, Keyless entry and starting


Worst Features

More optional wheels, is a strange offset so very few available.
