1998 Acura RL 3.5 Special Edition Review


Front wheel drive, 4 wheel disc brakes, Dual Air bags, long sevice intervals, and 8 way adjustable power seating. Interior equipped with Locking adjustable front console, Large center console in rear seats with 2 cupholders integrated, and rear ash trays. Wireless antenna, and premium sound system. Acura's top shelf luxury model.


Premium fuel consumption only, misfires on regular and shows a flashing engine light when regular unleaded is used: and the disk brakes are overly sensitive. Almost dangerous to tailgaters behind your car during heavy traffic.


1998 Acura Rl Premium — Excellent overall quality and resale value. Acura's Flagship Sedan. Performance is tightly equipped with a 210hp 3.5 V6 and FWD fully automatic transmission. Produces between 22 and 26 miles per gallon. Plush leather seating for 5 adults, with a spacious trunk capable of accomodating 3 full size luggage bags or fold the center console down and unlock the "ski through" access door and forget the ski rack. Only found on Acura Luxury Models. Interior equipped with Hi-Low heated seats for seat top and seatback, Front and rear climate control for with foot and body vents, heated mirrors and woodgrain accenting. Steering wheel functions, cruise control with volume control and track-to-track play mated to it's 10 speaker Bose Premium Sound System and 6-disk cd changer. Acura's largest luxury model.
