2002 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Far and away the best, most reliable
vehicle I have ever owned, and the most
enjoyable driving vehicle I have ever
been in. For a car it's size, it
handles very well in local, surface
road traffic and is very comfortable on
long Interstate highway trips. Very
easy for full size adults to enter and
exit the cockpit. So smooth and quiet
on the highway that you don't realize
you are going as fast as you are.


Best Features

Aerodynamic body design, head, shoulder, & body room inside, smooth & quick acceleration when needed, Bose stereo system, overall fit & finish.


Worst Features

Optional V-8 would be nice. More color options; Red ext. w/tan leather int., blue ext. CD magazine inside the cockpit!

2002 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

With 45,000 miles on my 2002, I am
trading in for a 2004. I have been very
pleased with this car. The Honda
quality in Acura products shows through
in the fit and finish and the engine is
superb. Could use about 15 more HP but
otherwise it is the best car I have
owned. Would recommend the RL to any
one. I disagree with some critics the
body style is 'outdated' I think it has
classy lines and Acura would be foolish
to "dress it up" too much in the 2005
model.


Best Features

Interior is the best in class. Navigation system is very user friendly and the finish on the car is superb.


Worst Features

Slightly more HP but otherwise no other recommendations

2002 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Classy car with a sporty look. Tight
handling more like the Legend.
Powerful with refined appearance. Just
the right mix of style & performance.


Best Features

Easy to see instrument panel. Bose sound system is excellent


Worst Features

This model did not have an in-dash CD player. CD changer is located in the trunk. Also, would like to see a full sized spare tire rather than the little "donut" in the event of a flat.

Review

Car is well build, reliable, and
sound. But a bore to drive try to rent
one for a week before driving, Deal
discounts abound, but don't fall in
love of the deal (I did) OPPS! With
deep discounts and an overload of
lease returns, your 10,000 mile value
will devistate you. Bearly in the
black after $11,000 down at purchase
and after $9,000. discount of
sticker.OUCH! Working hard to trade
for BMW or Benz.....REAL HARD


Best Features

Good AM radio (seriously sports talk fan) Wife can borrow for extended work trips.


Worst Features

A little of that "maintianing of value" we hear soooo much about from Acura/Honda
