Pros: "reliable, power, comfortable, HEATED SEATS"

Cons: "gas, high mileage maintenance"

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

"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""

"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."

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."

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

"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."
