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


Review

After looking at this and several others (for over a year), I finally broke down and got one of the last '06s. I had an '01 CL and never had a problem. This is a good reference site and after readimg all of the reviews I bought the base model for $40K. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on the site.


Best Features

AWD, audio, build quality.

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


Review

This perpective from trade in of a beloved 530i..New RL is tight & high build quality. Impressive ride comfort, great handling & power. Nav and other tech interface is intuitive. End of yr incentives added to strong value equation. Other: good view of road, clear displays day & night,good driver position & cockpit orientation. Many plus comments from passengers and wife (who drives an Audi A6 quattro). Now for winter drivin & more time to wash & wax it! Looked at GS350,530xi but Acura best perf/value/quality solution. Dealer contact in NH A++


Best Features

favorite aspect is the total package that the RL delivers -design, performance, safety, tech and value


Worst Features

Acura could add a plus with "S"port type options like less wood & some brushed aluminum on dash & leather color options, a minor critique. Acura misses some opportunities make the buying process simple & equitable for options like winter mats etc. Nice to have powerport up high for radardector.

Review

2006 RL Tech package, great car. Very comfortable quiet ride. I have looked at Lexus, BMW, Infiniti, this is the greatest car for the value and standard options which are optional on the other vehicles. The options on this car compared to the other vehicles would cost 10-15K more. The ride is second to none. Build quality is excellent. Highly recommended.


Best Features

Navigation and keyless FOB.


Worst Features

V8 availability.

Review

Just picked this up a couple days ago. Was looking at many others. I always went back to Acura RL. Has every option one could ask for in the best price. Looks great, sound system rocks, nav looks good. Need to spend some time on learning how to voice activate all options.


Best Features

Seats, look, nav and all other features, and price.


Worst Features

None that I can think of as of yet.

Review

Considered 3 and 5 Series BMW. 3 too small, 5 OK - both too expensive with the options I wanted. RL has them all. Acura nav system is exceptionally easy to use. Plenty of power from 6 cyl. All I need. Handling just excellent, SH-AWD is as advertised. Excellent. And, most of all, I really like the fact that I don't see myself coming and going every day. The RL is a fantastic automobile, built in Japan with all the features and handling I wanted.


Best Features

Power, nav system, comfort, quietness (amazingly quiet), surround sound system, distinctiveness.


Worst Features

6 speed transmission, bit more room in trunk
