Dissapointed with my RL
By John H on


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


I have purchased my last few cars (all used) and I've tried to move up with each purchase. I traded an Infiniti I35 and purchased this used RL (which had 16.7K miles on it). The car has been a pleasure to drive, but the amount of money that I have had to put into repairs has been a major disappointment. In the 16 months that I have owned the car I've had to replace the driver's side power mirror, a major repair to the air conditioner and replace one of the motors in the passenger's side seat. The total repairs cost $3,000 and the car has 50K miles on it. I've owned used Mazda's and Infinit's and never had these type of major repair issues. I am very disappointed in the RL's reliability

Best Features

Interior comfort, keyless start, powerful and smooth ride, radio with Bose speaker system, good highway mileage, look of the car.

Worst Features

Improve the quality of the workmanship on the items I mentioned above, CD player should shuffle 6 discs, city gas mileage is not good
