Pros: "comfortable, fun to drive, rides well"

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."

"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."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I bought this car new in 2000. I've changed the oil every 4K miles and done little other maintenance. I had to replace the catalytic converter, timing belts, filters, etc. The car is reliable, comfortable, good for long road trips. I would be happy to get a bit better mileage around town, but have accepted this relatively small issue. I would like to add bluetooth capability but there is no available input to audio system."

Pros: "Quiet, great ride, Bose sound - hard to beat"

Cons: "MPG"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"This is an unbelievable car. Great ride, plush interior, quiet. The only surprise was the MPG. I am getting around 15 miles per gallon in the city, but the size and weight of the car which helps with the ride hurts the gas mileage. I don't drive it much so the tradeoff is tolerable. All in all, the Acura is a great car."
