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


Review

This car is great for traveling. I retired in January 2006 & have taken several road trips this year. I usually get 28-30 mpg on the highway. I have had many positive comments on the interior design & sharp appearance of this vehicle. I previously owned 2 TLs before the RL. The TL is a great car too, but at this point in my life, I thought the RL is better suited for my needs. Overall, I love my car!


Best Features

The navigation system, keyless ignition & XM satellite radio are by far my favorite features.


Worst Features

I think the front seats could be a little more cushy & designed a little better. It would be great for the rear seats to seat 3 people comfortably. There is a slight hump in the middle of the back seat. I have found a couple of mislabeled highways in the navigation system.

2006 Acura RL Sedan 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.

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.
