I bought a certified preowned low mileage RL. The car was everything I thought and hoped it would be. I looked at Mercedes, BMW, Lexus and found this to be hands down the best value for the money. If you are considering this car, buy it, you won't be disappointed.
The information console is a technological marvel.
I bought this car a little over a year ago and within a month I started experiencing total electrical failure. This has happened about six times over the last 14 months. I brought it to two dealers and nothing seems to fix it permanently. Acura roadside assistance is a joke unless you liking waiting 3 to 4 hours for help. The car looks great and when it is working (which is rare), it performs well. Gas mileage is dismal.
The RL is a wonderful car to drive as it's very smooth riding and is extremely comfortable. It also has a beautiful design. It's a very quiet riding car. The AWD, navigation center, XM radio,and moonroof are all positive features of the RL. I bought it also for the many safety features. Love it!
Safety features. X M radio. Blue-tooth hands free phone set-up. Navigation center, however, somewhat complex.
Would be good to turn a complete circle, if needed. Navigation system could be less complex.
I have had my RL for about 9 months now. This is an amazing vehicle. It could use a little more low end torque, but I knew this when I bought the car (V6 can't give V8 torque). The ride is smooth and quick, but still with some "feel". The interior is incredible: comfortable seats, well laid out controls. Best of all everything!!! is adjustable, and retained in memory, for each driver: from seat and mirror positions, to when the auto headlights turn on, to auto door locks, to radio presets. Voice recognition is very good. Looks a little too much like the Accord but this is minor when all the rest is considered. This is the most tech. advanced car on the market.
Bluetooth telephone followed closely by the interior comfort.
Replace the "key" type ignition switch with a push button
