2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have had my Opulent Blue Pearl RL for 6 months & have just over 12,000 miles on it. No problems. This is my 4th Honda product. It replaced a Lexus GS 400. The RL has the best integration of tech on the market. Bluetooth, nav voice recognition all blow the comp away. Esp the nav that you can use while driving instead of just in park like the Lexus. The SHAWD is great I live in the south & did not think I needed it ut it works great. Car is a great highway cruiser.


Best Features

Electronics, nav, voice recognition audio. Comfort, keyless entry.


Worst Features

Cooled seats, audio to play std DVDs instead of just DVD audio. Do away with the nag screen at startup. A better iPod integration.

2006 Acura RL 3.5 4dr Sedan AWD w/Navi System (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have been an Acura owner from the first day they went on sale in 1986, this is my fourth, still have my 1992 Legend. I am getting 20 to 22 mpg in daily driving, my 2002 TL type S was about 1 mpg better. If you overlook this car you are missing something very good.


Best Features

Navigation, AWD, Keyless entry and starting


Worst Features

More optional wheels, is a strange offset so very few available.

Review

Fun car to drive, unfortunately I totaled it last week. Got hit head-on by a large SUV. Car did its job well, I got a broken foot but I'm lucky to be alive. I already ordered another one. The five star crash ratings are well deserved.


Best Features

Navigation system, DVD audio, handling.


Worst Features

Little bit more horsepower, ventilated seats, rain sensing wipers.
