Pros

Very reliable smooth operator.

Cons

Lack of v8, front seats not that great.

Good Value — I like the car but if could redo my decision I would have gone with v8 BMW. Would not repurchase new one and now looking for BMW. Service is a bit questionable as dealer keeps recommending items far ahead of what the manual states.

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" system. Gas milage over the 150,000 miles average is 23.7 MPG with 290 hoursepower. Acura dealers treat you very nice.

Best High End Car Ever...... — if your looking to buy a "high end car," check out the ACURA RL. Very comfortable to drive, has all the bells and whistles and it's RELIABLE......

Pros

Quality; ride; looks (especially from the front). Has good pep, not as much as
the TL, though.

Cons

iPod has to be tweaked every so often, but is worth it for the 7,000 tunes!!!

Great Car.... Good Looks... Great Interior — I've had four Acuras. The other three were TL's (1999, 2002 and 2004). With the 2004, I got exposed to the voice-activated controls and dual AC. This RL does it one better with the iPod controls,
