Perfect sedan for the Money
By jasonwipf on


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


Perfect Used sedan for the money.
Why spend 40-70k for luxury sedans when you can get a 2004 Acura for 10-13K??? They changed the styling in 2005 and its completely different.
The newer ones are sporty and pre-2005 they are luxury.
I have owned 2 so far they are that great. my 1998 RL I ran to 265,000 before giving to my sister inlaw who is still running it today.
And my 2004 I picked up with 88K and know it will go easily to 300K miles. thats over 200,000 of luxury car for only $14K (thats on the high side for buying it in 2012 but it was a cherry! and worth every penny).

Best Features

Comfortable drive. I put 25,000,-50,000 miles on a car in a year. I abuse my cars and the 98-04 RLs will always come back smiling for more. Any maintenance or repairs are cheap compared to other luxury brands. I'd rate part prices a 4-6 (offbrand vs. OEM) on a 10 scale in my opinion with most luxury brand parts costing 7-10 on that same scale. (I pull my hair out with my Benz)

Worst Features

I just hoped Acura brings the luxury RLs back some time soon.
