I compared all the luxury sedans and thought RL was a good value. Well, I was wrong.
I bought RL Tech package and found problem from the 2nd day. It's been 6 weeks, and Acura/Honda corporate and dealership do not care. I initially noticed abnormal noises coming from at least 8 difference sources. On the 2rd day, I reported and dealer started fixing problems by ordering parts and tearing apart covers and seats. It has been the 5th time since I took this car back to the dealership and yet, mechanical problems continues to arise. Half of the time since I own this vehicle, the car is the dealership getting fixed.
Good to know they fixed some problem, and yet, the major ones they just wave their hands. The windshield does not sit tight and it is moving and hitting against the column holding it. This is a major manufacturing structural problem and it is taking weeks to fix.
Acura/Honda corporation does not care even though they managed to always say nice words and after weeks, you found no actions taken. Dealerships is probably making a lot of money from Acura, but even they are trying to maximize their profile keeping my car without giving me a loaner.
How funny to pay 50k for a RL tech only to find out that this car is a major defect and is going to be their engineering experiment to learn how to design car only at the owner's expense.
I am selling this car for a 10k lost after owning it for 6 weeks and the car has 500 miles now. (300 miles is to drive back and forth the dealership for repair).
This car is a total engineering disaster... stay away from it.
