Best of the Luxury Sedans
By Andy Acura on


2008 Acura RL 4dr Sedan AWD w/Technology Package (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I have had them all. Audi, BMW 535, Infinity, Lincoln, MB E350. I couldn't believe the RL when I drove it somewhat reluctantly. Incredible road hugging and plenty of power with 300 hp for a v6. You can punish this car and it keeps coming back for more. I almost went for the Lexus GS 350 but felt it was rough riding and a little noisy compared to the RL. The GS 460 would have been more fun but much more expensive. Great technology and maybe the best GPS and Bose stereo with noise abatement. Cabin is whisper quiet. I got 26 mpg on 160 mile highway trip. Not bad. Fit and finish among the best. I will enjoy this car for 36 month lease, I know.

Best Features

The 4 wheel drive, gps, voice command, Bose stereo, noise suppression in the cabin, fit and finish is great. I love the dessert sand paint and matching interior.

Worst Features

Let you know in 6 mo. The driver's seat seems a little low even at the highest setting. All Honda's have this characteristic.
