More Car for the Money
By friedoyster on


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


Absolutely qualifies as an entry in
the luxury car segment, but is not as
technically current as it's
competitors (like the Lexus LS430),
BUT it costs a lot less money. Since
this should be the last model year for
the existing design, rebates and
incentives should be plentiful as
well. It drives well, is extremely
quiet, and has many cool creature
comforts like XM sat, voice activated
nav, on-star, etc. The engine is an
old design and eats more gas than it
should (similar MPG to the 8 cyl
Lexus). Overall, it's a good trade-off
for value vs state-of-the-art luxury.

Best Features

XM/Bose Radio Navigation Ride/Comfort/Quiet Price/Value

Worst Features

This car fills it's niche well. Add the VTEC engine, 5 sp automatic, etc etc, and you end up with the Lexus, and a 60K+ price tag
