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


I purchased a leftover 2006 RL w/o tech in September. I got a car with stately design and that, once I added A-Spec suspension and 18" wheels, handles well in the twisties while maintaining excellent composure on local bumpy streets. The interior is nearly perfect except for small buttons. Luckily, voice activation works for all the common controls. I have owned Hondas previously and so am used to having to stomp on the gas to get adequate power and when you do, this car really does accelerate fast. In 50/50 city/highway mileage I am getting about 17.5 mpg, not so great especially when gas is so expensive. Overall, a good deal on a gorgeous ride!

Best Features

Interior quality, voice commands, stereo system, driving dynamics, AWD performance in winter.

Worst Features

V8 power or find a V6 with better low-end torque please. Bigger trunk. Bigger dash buttons.
