Mercedes quality without the pretense
By Creek Car Guy on


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


This is my daily commuter car, for which
purpose it is flawless. I have had
absolutely no problems with it, except I
have had to replace the special tires I
put on it (I put wide rims with wide
tires for style).

My wife's Mercedes 300e is boring, with
vague suspension characteristics and a
lousy sound system(Bose, but still
lousy) by comparison!

Best Features

Superior cabin air quality and HVAC system--best I have ever had. Very comfortable seats, dynamite sound system, great tracking due to FWD. Standards include heated seats, sunroof, ESP, TCM, ABS, Xenon,6-CD player and cassette. Nav system is fantastic.

Worst Features

The standard wheels look like they belong on a Buick. I added Borbet wheels w/wide tires = sports sedan! Rear-end styling is bland. The engine could stand a boost. I am always trying to justify a more expensive upgraded car, but can't seem to!
