Had for 1 year, 14,000 miles. Excellent fuel economy 27-30 on all highway. No mechanical problems. My wife would like an adjustable passenger seat, seating position too low. Fit and finish second to none. RL has plenty of power I use it often on steep hills. I like the styling much more than the 09 grille has a richer more elegant look than the 09. Handling is great in high speed situations, far superior to the TL. I like the exterior design, quite understated, however I do see the point of someone saying it looks too much like a Honda. I understand the 2011 will be a totally new car. Acura/Honda really does want to compete with the best from Lexus. After all is said and done would I buy it again... for sure.
Fuel economy, fit and finish, reliability, understated looks, superior electronics.
This has been an excellent purchase and both my wife and I are very pleased with the car. My only comment is that I feel the passenger seat should have the same power features as the drivers side - i.e., the seat is too low for my wife.
Beautiful paint. Ours is white pearl.
The passenger seat should have the same power features as the driver's side as my wife finds the seat too low.
So far I have owned the car for a couple of months and do not regret the purchase at all. I bought it for safety primarily but realized that it also has the legendary Honda quality. The details of this car are incredible, better than the German cars and value wise by 15 K at least also. The car feels like a tank but has the power to go when needed,. This car has near 300hp and you feel every horse! The AWD is incredible, it would take a bulldozer to take it off course.
AWD, adaptive lights, navi, electronics are incredible, styling is sleek and practical, tire size provides stability, safety features are plentiful and seldom found in other cars as a complete package, parts are very reasonable, LED and other cabin lighting is great, drive is solid, fun to drive!
Mud guards should come standard, floor mats seem very light and cheap which is surprising for the money.
Like most readers I've driven them all, but this one delivers a lot of bang for the buck. Does not handle like a 5 series, will not out accelerate a 550i, but it handles beautifully, is great on the road, and has an interior and audio system that puts the 5 series and E-Class to shame. Put that together with Acura's reputation for reliability and we have a BIG winner.
This car looked like a terrific value, but it has not turned out that way. I was looking forward to "Honda Reliability" but too many things just don't work well or are gimmicky. Fuel economy is atrocious (14-15), electronics don't work that well, run-flat tires are super loud, there is some wind noise, key fob/keyless entry never works the same twice in a row. Car is pretty slow off the line, but decent on the highway. Ride is too much of a compromise. Handling is good, but the Michelin run-flats are lousy performance tires in all but the correct temperature range. I came out of an Audi A8, and would NOT buy this car again.
Decent seats, amazing navigation system, bluetooth phone support works most days, climate control is basically nice, motor runs nice on the highway (not around town), interior is reasonably well done.
Fuel consumption is outrageous. Steering column stalk controls are goofy, Tires are terrible. Locking mechanism gets confused and locks you out and/or prevents the car from starting (stranded 3 times). Too much electronic mumbo jumbo.
