2008 Acura RL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We cross shopped Audi A6, Q7, Infiniti M35x, Cadilac CTS4, Acura TL and RL, after we returned a 2006 BMW 530xiT. We finally decided to lease an RL because it has all the basic elements of being a luxury car. This is the 4th Honda/Acura we had owned so far. And probably the most conservative Honda/Acura we ever have. Having said that, the RL is still a wonderful car to drive. Only hope 3 years later, Acura can have another face lift base on the coming 2009 RL (it is NOT attractive at all) plus a RWD-biasd AWD. Then I think we will continue to be in the Honda's family.

Best Features

Quiet ride, comfortable seats, and top quality of the material used for its interior.

Worst Features

Acura's SH-AWD cars are heavy. That extra weight not only hurts RL's MPG but also its performance, which both should be Honda's advantage. The keyless operations should extend to both rear doors, not just to the front doors.
