Not Quite as Good as I Expected
By stonehenge on

Vehicle

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

Review

While the Acura RL handles extremely well and is generally a solidly built vehicle, I am disappointed by the amount of interior rattles. I traded out of a VW Passat that had no squeaks and rattles into the RL and the unwanted noises are most annoying. The quietness of the cabin just serves to amplify the interior squeaks and rattles. I would not buy another for the price of the car.

Favorite Features

The technology, the reliability, the SH-AWD, a very accurate navi system, voice recognition, and bluetooth phone connectivity.

Suggested Improvements

Lose the squeaks and rattles, reduce the turning radius, improve the city mpg - 13 mpg in city driving is absurd for a 6 cylinder engine but hwy mpg is double that and add height adjustment and memory for passenger seat.

This is my second RL that I have owned the first was an 2008 but I trader it in for a 2006 due to the miles i put on my car. I love this car and anyone who rides in it always complements me on it. This car is pure class. The one recommedation I would have is not to put cheaper tires on it.
