Outstanding, Reliable Luxury

1999 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan


I have owned my 1999 Acura RL for 6 years.
I bought it used at 158,000 miles.
It now has 212,000 miles.
It has been very reliable, very comfortable, and is a solid vehicle.
Honda engineering with Acura comfort.
Definitely worth every penny!

Best Features

-Great styling. Not too edgy, not too frumpy. -Heated Seats -Virtually bulletproof engine with great acceleration. -High build quality -Very reliable. I drove over 20,000+ miles with an overdue oil change, ABS & TCS light on, the check engine light on, and it ran just as good as it ever did! -Solid. It's just solid! The doors close quietly, the seats are comfortable, nothing seems cheap.

Worst Features

Cons -Requires premium gas (but not ALL the time ;) ) -Not all mechanic shops can work on Acuras. -Not easy to find parts for. Usually have to use eBay or an online parts store. -Manual lumbar on drivers side is awkwardly placed. -6 Disc CD changer is in the trunk.
