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


Review

I use my RL for my short commute to work, and taking the family around the town, it's just terrific. It has every feature that I need, and a lot I will never use. The 6 cylinder engine puts out more than ample power. This is a great car and i would recommend it to anyone who can afford its steep price.


Best Features

Standard navigation, standard sunroof/leather, standard side and rear sunshades, xenon headlamps


Worst Features

The wheels are nice, but could be a little flashier

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


Review

If you want to be pampered, this is the car to purchase. Though not short in performance, its strength is its smooth effortless ride and its on board technology. Best navigation package in the market with a full compliment of voice activated systems.


Best Features

Navigation System Voice activation Audio system Cabin layout


Worst Features

Needs a little more kick in acceleration

Review

I just love my car. I have driven others and owned other more expensive cars and none came close to the overall pleasure I get from my rl. I love all the instrumentations and all the extras that come standard with this car. It is the best I have ever had. I like it even better than my corvette.


Worst Features

needs better gas mileage

Review

Comfort on the road is outstanding. Visuals as far as instrument panel are perfect. Room in back seat is outstanding. Also love the gps and the voice activation system. Also the best sound system i've heard, better than my 430 mzb.


Best Features

gps, xm stero, keyless entry system. trunk space is great and the car's styling is great.


Worst Features

I'm having a problem with the power outlets. they don't seem to work with my verizon power cord, and my laptop. it is very frustrating when I can't charge my phone or laptop. I wish AMH would get their act together and correct the problem.

Review

Have now owned new Acura RL for one week. LOVE this car. The V6 is quicker than I thought it would be - it really flies, albeit not as pulse- raising as a BMW or Audi. LOVE the tiptronic - can really zoom in low gear. Have averaged 22.5 mpg in mixed suburban/highway driving. The ergonomics are spectacular. Absolutely the best overall VALUE in its class, no question.
