2005 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this vehicle with about 2000 miles on it. Apparently the person who owned it before me could not master its array of controls and turned it in early. I find the controls very intuitive and love everything about this car except the shifts which seem leisurely. Handling is great, acceleration is smooth and more than adequate, and the climate control system is quite effective. This car offers much more than a comparably priced BMW which I test drove.

Best Features

Navigation System, Keyless Ignition, Auto on-off headlights, Window Screens, All-Wheel Drive (sticks like glue, I can't break the tires loose on dry pavement)

Worst Features

Quicker shifting transmission(I'd also like a stick, but I am not sure it would be appropriate with this vehicle). Separate fan controls for rear heating/cooling ducts. I would complain about the gas mileage, but it is a 2 ton vehicle and matches the EPA estimate.
