Not all it's cracked up to be
By Wingnut on


2007 Acura RL 4dr Sedan AWD w/CMBS, PAX Tires (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


This car looked like a terrific value, but it has not turned out that way. I was looking forward to "Honda Reliability" but too many things just don't work well or are gimmicky. Fuel economy is atrocious (14-15), electronics don't work that well, run-flat tires are super loud, there is some wind noise, key fob/keyless entry never works the same twice in a row. Car is pretty slow off the line, but decent on the highway. Ride is too much of a compromise. Handling is good, but the Michelin run-flats are lousy performance tires in all but the correct temperature range. I came out of an Audi A8, and would NOT buy this car again.

Best Features

Decent seats, amazing navigation system, bluetooth phone support works most days, climate control is basically nice, motor runs nice on the highway (not around town), interior is reasonably well done.

Worst Features

Fuel consumption is outrageous. Steering column stalk controls are goofy, Tires are terrible. Locking mechanism gets confused and locks you out and/or prevents the car from starting (stranded 3 times). Too much electronic mumbo jumbo.
