2009 Acura RL 4dr Sedan AWD (3.7L 6cyl 5A)


For someone who has never owned a decent car, I imagine that they would think the RL is great. But I have had so many reliability problems with it, I will NEVER buy an Acura again. The handling is pretty good, the car is fun to drive, even though it is slow. Overall, I would rate it a 7 out of 10.

Best Features

Nice chassis dynamics, turns great at any speed. Navigation system is stellar. Nice steering wheel. Comfortable seats.

Worst Features

The electronics are terribly unreliable. The car is managed by several controllers, all of which are severely buggy. Sometimes, the car won't start. Sometimes, the radio or climate won't work. Just painful.
