Best Value / Best Luxury Sedan
By Walter Flynn on


2004 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


This is my second RL. A totally
reliable luxury sedan which I
rate 'best in class' and price
competitive (especially now with the
dealer discount of $3,500). I like the
traditional body style (unlike the car
review critics) and believe it is a
much better 'value' purchase over the
much pricier Lexus and Mercedes
equivalents. Honda products are just
clearly a better performing and more
reliable car over any other make.
Change the oil and rotate the tires and
it will run like a clock for 100,000 +
miles like my old RL. Please do not
change the body style too radically in

Best Features

Fit and finish. Interior cabin is superb and quiet highway ride. The V-6 powerplant, while slightly underpowered, is technically superb. The voice activated NAV system is great.

Worst Features

Like many RL "loyalists" a few extra ponies would make it the "perfect machine" and would clearly move Acura up the list of car magazine reviews. I do NOT believe a body style is needed!
