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


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.

Review

Fun car to drive, unfortunately I totaled it last week. Got hit head-on by a large SUV. Car did its job well, I got a broken foot but I'm lucky to be alive. I already ordered another one. The five star crash ratings are well deserved.


Best Features

Navigation system, DVD audio, handling.


Worst Features

Little bit more horsepower, ventilated seats, rain sensing wipers.

Review

I really agonized over the decision to trade up from my 2004 TL - I loved the technology, styling, acceleration and fuel economy. The "killer app" on the RL was navigation with real-time traffic. The first time I drove the RL it felt "floaty" to me. Now that I've driven it for a month, it feels serene. Interior amenities are much nicer than the TL - I don't ache anymore after an hour and a half on the road. The sound system ROCKS and technology is nicely integrated. The real-time navi saves some time, though mainly it gives a sense of mastery over the environment. Handling is secure, especially in the curves. Gas mileage is so-so, around 20. I love that there are no options.


Best Features

NavTraffic, great sound system with XM radio, adaptive cruise control, great seats, amazing value relative to competitors, rarity on the road.


Worst Features

A few more HP, 6-speed tranny, standard iPod link, edgier stying.
