2006 Acura RL Sedan 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++


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

Navigation and keyless FOB.


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

6 speed transmission, bit more room in trunk

Review

Just fun to drive. Accelarate on the curve the you will know what I mean. Stability is outstanding. Powerful and smooth drive is really. Voice activated navigation, handsfree phone is excellent and on star satellite service is really first notch. Quiet inside but when put on gas pedal, racing Honda sound awakes. Braking is superb. Inside is roomy with enough leg room for rear seat. Voice activated temperature and audio controls are handy. Auto cruise control will keep the distance with the car in front of you, and the seat belt will rattle when you get too close to the front car. Nice safety feature.


Favorite Features

SH-AWD. Flatless tire. Monitoring system, tire pressure, even loose gas cap. Navigation system is handy and easy to set. Voice command system will recognize even Janglish !! Keyless enter system is well thought with fool proof features.


Suggested Improvements

Windshield wiper is a bit noisy when it is not so wet. Front bumper is a bit too low for my steep garage slope. Well this is not suggested improvement but my headache for daily use.
