"My brother bought this car new, and I purchased it about 6 years ago with 235000 miles on it. It has been a pleasure to have! It is super comfortable for long trips, and has every option, premium sound also. As long as the recommended maintenance is performed with a few others, mostly front end axles, tires, and premium gas. The oil changes now are like $70 for high mileage synthetic. This car inside and out is top of the line!
I call it "The Beast""
"I have had absolutely no problems with my RL. It is one of the most comfortable luxurious cars of its time. I would recommend this car to anyone who is starting to drive or even just someone looking for a powerful, strong and comfortable car to daily drive."
"At first I didn't think anything could beat German engineering but I was wrong. I bought this car new in 2000. other than normal maintenance that you would expect the vehicle has been perfect. even the paint is still perfect . All amenities in the car still operate effectively. Engine has not loss any compression according to my mechanic. Mountain climbs are of no consequence in this vehicle. Its a sedan so don't expect rocket acceleration but it will hold it's own."
Cons: "slow accelerator, CD disk changer is in the trunk"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"The 1998 Acura RL is a good vehicle for in-town commutes, but durable enough if you have to take it on a long drive. The leather seats were comfortable and the design of the entire car is very nice. The 6-CD disk changer is in the trunk, which is sometimes inconvenient when you are tired of your CDs. This car has a V-6 engine, but it accelerates at a snail's pace. Overall, I enjoy owning this car. It is a good first car that is both a starter vehicle, but a step up the base/basic model cars."
"Well maintained, reliable, smooth ride with all accessories and features in working order. Clean interior, owner and all passengers non-smokers. All service records available. Original manual available.
Burl trim, interior leather in excellent condition."
"Love this car and do not want to give it up, its really low mileage. My husband thinks I should have a SUV. (he has owned 2 Acura SUV's) and loves his MDX. Traffic is very heavy on the Island esp at vacation and holiday times. feels I should update for the elevated view and ease of loading groceries etc."
