2001 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Excellent car - best car for long trips - quiet and easy to drive. Performance is adequate as is the mileage. Zero repairs other than normal oil changes etc. I do my own work and regular maintenance is easy. Deal visit (1-brake flush) was good - price and service. Special note - Acura paint is great; it just doesn't get rock chips like other cars I own.

Best Features

No gimmicks - just solid & reliable. Nice engine - smooth and deliberate. Predictable handling - and resale value is always great. (not selling)

Worst Features

See 2004 TL - more power and 5 speed auto + more exciting styling. (4 speed auto seems very dated.) New RL seems to address issues. Always prefer 2 shift modes in auto -economy and sport. Mauual shift modes waste of time and energy.
