Can't believe we get to drive an RL
By follow_jesus on


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


It's the ride quality, folks! Doesn't the brochure say something about the
seat springs being tuned to filter out vibrations. Our RL is so smooth it
shames my '98 Accord (which has "vault-like quietness" according to
Automobile magazine!).

Also, less is more. The controls are few in number and easily accessible

Ridiculous to have a "Fun to Drive" rating in this class of car -- like minivan
buyers looking at slalom figures! It's a true limousine -- no surprises, perfect
manners and looks beautiful. I still am in awe that we get to drive it around.

Best Features

Heated seats and overall roominess. Classic styling. Quiet, smooth and soft ride CD changer Steering column audio controls Gorgeous navy blue color

Worst Features

In-dash 6+ 1 CD changer. Tweak that sweet V6 to give better 0-45 mph times.
