Great used value

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


Love the car. I have a fairly long commute and am quite pleased with the low-mileage 04 RL that I bought this fall. Some say the Acura has "no soul." Nonsense. If "no soul" means "car stays out of the shop" then I'll take it. Steady 21 MPG in mixed driving. Reliable as the day is long. Not the most exciting car I've owned but quiet, comfortable and a great value. Build quality is exceptional - tight, and all seams and panel gaps are very well done. Car mags hated this car new, suppose it wasn't such a great value at $40K+ brand new, but in the used market its a great value.

Best Features

Heated seats, quiet interior. Controls very easy to find and used, no mysteries. Huge trunk. Very comfortable, relaxing cruise. Reliable and economical.

Worst Features

Bluetooth for cell phone would be nice. Optional charcoal wood trim on center console (my car has this option) turns a strange dark green color with sun exposure. 5-speed auto should have been available, even in '04.
