2008 Acura RL 4dr Sedan AWD w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Traded in 2003 3.2 TL. Had A4 before that and living in Northeast missed the AWD. Ratings lower for fun to drive as it is a matter of what you want....a small fun car like an A4 or BMW 3 Series to zip around and corner in or the luxury of a bigger car. I went for the luxury and am happy I did. The lower rating for the exterior design is because let's be honest this does not have the flash of some rivals. Otherwise, I love this car. Great upgrades, interior, loaded with bose stereo, bluetooth, nav. system. AWD fantastic thru 3 snowstorms that would have crippled TL. Car is solid and feel safe. Lot of highway, getting 21 MPG! TL never a prob, anticipate same or better with RL

Favorite Features

no doubt the all wheel drive. Better than my Audi had. Interior is first class. Roomier than it looks on the outside. Car is heavy and with two kids feel quite safe. Read about bad acceleration, but better than TL was and am acutally quite pleased with it. Interior has all the bells, whistles

Suggested Improvements

car still looks like a Honda. I like the newer TL design better. in the give and take, it is roomier, but it is therfore going to drive more like a sedan than a sports car. But I knew that going in Great car, and when shopping against a 5 series or lexus, get SO much more for money here. Buy it
