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

Review

I had two reqs. when looking for a car; AWD and reliability. The RL seemed to be the best of a few options (M35,A6,Passat,500,Benz). The RL is expensive, but is a reasonable value. I moved to the RL from an Avalon and miss the rear-seat/trunk room. Many comments about lack of low-end torque/need for V8; I disagree, the RL has acceptable power but lack of road noise and handling give the impression you are traveling slower than you actually are. Easy to be going 80 mph and not realize it. The RL controls are confusing. The RL feels 'heavy' (which it is) making the vehicle feel sluggish but solid. I fill the tank 75% to reduce veh weight which helps performance and MPG.

Favorite Features

Nav System. MP3 stereo. Highway speed handling.

Suggested Improvements

The stereo is very good, but not great, could use +20% volume. Guzzles Premium gas. Too much toggling required to access interface systems - AC / Stereo / Navigation. Voice recognition not reliable enough to use frequently. Trunk too small. Two more inches of leg room in the back seat.
