2007 Acura RL Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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!


Suggested Improvements

Mud guards should come standard, floor mats seem very light and cheap which is surprising for the money.

2007 Acura RL Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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.

2007 Acura RL Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD w/CMBS, PAX Tires (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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.


Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

We wanted an AWD sedan after a string of average SUVs. This vehicle is a beauty. Excellent build quality and finish. It would be difficult to beat the value for money. It rides smoothly and is very comfortable. We are delighted with our purchase so far.


Favorite Features

The reverse camera and interior finish.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel consumption is a bit high.

2007 Acura RL Sedan 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just purchased my RL. Build quality equal to or better than Lexus. A great value with current market support. SH-AWD useful in all weather, not just snow. A smart looking car, however not screaming 'I am here'. Had a 2004 TL and liked it, this is much more car. I hope resale is as good on this as it was on my TL. Also owned a 2001 BMW 525, no comparison. The BMW was more like my TL. RL does seem overpriced until you drive it.


Favorite Features

Seats are very comfortable. Technology only seems confusing, takes about a week to learn. Ride and handling exceptional.


Suggested Improvements

Cooled seats.
