Nice step up from the TL

ReviewI 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 FeaturesNavTraffic, great sound system with XM radio, adaptive cruise control, great seats, amazing value relative to competitors, rarity on the road.
Worst FeaturesA few more HP, 6-speed tranny, standard iPod link, edgier stying.
