2004 Acura RL Review Rankings
2004 Acura RL 3.5L Review
Outstanding handling, Extreme head turner, Wonderful build quality
Not the fastest car on the road, or the best braking, somewhat bumpy suspenion
This Car Matches My Personality The Best. Jack Of All Trades... — I'm going to go by list of the recommended: Performance: It's adequate as Rolls Royce would say. Acceleration Braking etc. is par for the course Build Quality: Outstanding, nothing else to be said Appearance: While subjective, this car is definitely a GREAT looking car when modified. Aggressive and elegant at the same time. A timeless design Cost of Ownership: Well it's been pretty trouble free so far, we'll see. gas mileage is okay for a large car, but keep you pocket stacked because it's definitely not a Diesel in the MPG department. Fun Factor: well, all things considered, this car is a BLAST to drive. in model year 2002-2004, the suspension and chassis was stiffened to take advantage of the car's original Sporting nature. It handles EXTREMELY well for a car its size and even for a car smaller. VERY well planted and begs to be driven. However, it will let you know you've gone too far by stepping the rear out on you.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Very Solid, No Issues, Nothing Goes Wrong.
For a long distance commute car, you can not go wrong. The Acura has been bullit-proof without exception. The radio sounds great and very little outside noise due to the "Bose Active Noise Reduction... Read More
