    1996 Acura Rl — Very under-rated car. Also under priced. High quality luxury car for affordable price used. Good acceleration, good enough handling (change stock tires), interior build quality is top notch, low noise, solid transmission. This car is good for 300k miles or more.

    Pros: good buils quality, dependable

    Cons: suspension a bit soft

    1996 Acura Rl — the car has balways been in the family, and always been maintained. best thing i can say is its overall dependibility. as far as mechanically the car has been a dream. it has 172 ,000 miles on it now and is still running smooth. though it did have a major mechanical problem that went wrong, the transmission due to a lack of fluid. it does have a check engine light on because of oxygen sensors and the abs because of a sensor also. havent really looked into them because they in no way affect the driveability. i recently had the gauge lights burn out on me. so i replaced those for about 20 bucks and a half a days of work( though i could have doe it in less if id known what i was doing). again overall it is a pretty strong car and is looking to run well into the mid 250 k range. gas mileage ranges around 19 - 22. does ask for premium but itll take anything

    Pros: dependibility, dependibility,

    Cons: the likeliness to accumulate little problems ie. hard to access lightbulbs

    229k And Counting — I bought my '96 RL used in 2000 with 48k on it. I now have 229k and it is still going strong. Best car I have ever had. I've done mostly the usual repairs (tires, brakes, coil packs, etc.). It is expensive to insure and the parts are expensive but it has been great. Not the most powerful car (v6, 220 HP) but it cruises the highway effortlessly at 80 MPH and the acceleration from 40 to 80 is fine...
