RL full of electrical gremlins

2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
My RL has proven to be a myriad of gadget glitches. No doubt the RL is a quality constructed vehicle, however this does not extend to the electronic gizmos of Acura’s flagship. The voice recognition does not work properly; it is a cumbersome and time consuming system, frequented by voice interpretation errors. The 300hp VTEC is sluggish, and has a very annoying 2- 3 second mid-range acceleration lag. Dealer service says “they all do that.” It is sluggish and lacks torque. Self adjusting headlights cause some serious safety concerns. Acura missed the target here, and RL sales are showing it. Look to the Infinity M for a true sports-luxury car.
comfortable seats, build quality
poor performance, low torque, better stock tires and wheels, poor ergonomics and visability. Many voice recognition errors.
