The engine for the 1998 RL is a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 210 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque. Gas mileage is 19 city/25 highway. The car comes standard with leather seats, power windows, and power door locks.
Drivers praise the smooth and agile ride of the 1998 RL, though some want more power. Many just want the car to feel more luxurious and less like an Accord.

The 1998 RL Special Edition has the same engine as the base RL: a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 210 horsepower and 224 lb-ft of torque. Gas mileage was estimated at 19 city/25 highway. The Special Edition trim adds heated front seats, a CD changer, and two-tone paint.
Drivers have complained that the CD changer should be an in-dash model rather than in the trunk. Otherwise, the Bose stereo gets very positive reviews.
