2008 Acura RL User Reviews
- $16,524 - $18,452
- No trim specified for this review
- filled with technology, comfortable cruiser, good for twisty roads.
- Needs a torquey V8, RWD should be standard, more interior space, fake wood glares at you in the sun
I am overall satisfied with the car, I actualy own a 2006 RL with the Tech pkg. It has soft leather seats, its smooth and quiet, and does just about everything right or an everyday cruiser. I don't like the Navigation system, but it is better than BMW, MB, Audi, ect. I live in a smaller city and many roads aren't shown. And it doesn't know all the short cuts either. For $56,000 (A-Spec, wood steering wheel, ect) I expected more space. Its adequate, but not exceptional. I did buy a Lexus LS460 but my wife drives that while I drive the Acura. The fake wood in the RL not only looks cheaper than the real thing, it is so bright in the sun that you can't help but be distracted. Acura needs a V8 with at least 350 bhp and 320 lbs torque. RWD should also be the standard drive, AWD should be opt. And it needs to do something other's haven't, panaramic sunroof, DVD, SOMETHING to stand out in the crowd! But overall, its a satisfying car to own.
