Pros: "FUN TO DRIVE, INTERIOR,EXTERIOR FIT AND FINISH"

Cons: "FUEL ECONMONY, PREMIUM FUEL"

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

"Previous 2006 Cadillac STS owner,a very beautiful car, amazing to drive,but could not pull out of garage if it snowed. Wife wanted a dependable luxury car that could drive in any weather, and was not wanting to drive a SUV,so bought 2012 Acura RL advanced package,not a single disappointment as far as the way car looks drives or handles, fuel economy could be better,and buying premium gas is different,I believe the 30 dollars a month will be worth it."

Pros: "Reliability, quality, comfort, performance"

Cons: "Trunk space, complex controls, 2d power outlet"

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

"Never any mechanical problem. Only occasional new brake pads. Very comfortable, especially on long trips. Great sound system, but no MP3 hookup. Only down side: small trunk room, overly complex digital controls, poor location for second power outlet. Acura is top of list for next purchase."

"Powerful V-6, smooth, quiet, comfortable, the swift AWD gets you anywhere, wet/dry pavement! You marvel at its reliability & comfort for a Honda-built car. A sweet machine! Sorry, but nothing like it comes close to being built in the US, and I LOVE the USA !!!"

"Dependable, comfortable, peppy & sporty for a sedan. The all-wheel drive gives this car remarkable control on slippery/wet pavement, although this feature does take away from its overall mileage (avg: 18.5 city, 29-30.5 hiway)."

Cons: "None"

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

"I have owned many cars over the decades and this is absolutely the best. It has the SH-AWD system which provided fantastic traction and response. Will get you "there" in any weather - rain, snow, etc. Comfort is amazing. My wife prefers it over her Mercedes for any road trips. Have owned 3+ years and no problems, weaknesses, etc to report. Well-designed, engineered and built. Probably the best-dept secret on the road. Will look seriously at Acura for any future car purchases."
