What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Acura RL

Acura RL Personal Experiences: Pros
2004 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.5L V6
4-speed automatic FWD
Like I said above, this is my fifth Acura. I leased a Legend and an RL, bought an Integra and a TL, and finally bought this last vehicle, an RL. It has 65K miles and is as good as new. full 2004 Acura RL review
