"This car used was a bargain - because it is overlooked and underrrated. Many publications talk about its bland style and poor performance with the V6. Let me tell you - go the to local Lexus dealer and put an ES 350 and an Acura RL from 2005 bumper to bumper and you tell me which is the 10 year old design. Performance? With the SH AWD it corners as if on rails and when that VTEC kicks in you feel all 290-300 HP. Traction in winter is incomparable. It has every creature comfort imaginable and still today - comparison shop. Ours has leather, adaptive headlights, backup camera, navigation, multi disc CD changer, real wood inlay in the dash and doors, power rear window sunshade, side sunshades, heated seats, - go to an Audi, BMW or Mercedes dealer and see on what models those features are STANDARD as on our 2008 RL? $3000 of options on the Audi A6. Adaptive headlights alone on the BMW 5 series are $1900!"

"Obviously, you will be buying one of these RLs used now since this body style is no longer made. In my opinion, you cannot buy a better used car for the money. Good examples cost less than $10,000. That is Honda Civic money. The SH-AWD system is amazing. I have always driven 4WD and AWD vehicles. This is the best system out there. The car isn't perfect, the seats are a bit tight for "big" people like me. But normal people just rave about the comfort. The stereo is awesome. I get over 30-mpg on the highway at 75-plus. In 175,000 miles, here is what has been done to the car. Oil changes for engine, transmission and rear diff. Brakes - once. Timing belt. Wiper blades. Tires. That is it."

Excellent, dependable, luxurious car

"Purchased new in 2007. The RL came standard with Navigation, SH-AWD, rear camera, surround sound Bose system, 290 HP V6. Test drove the BMW 5-series, Lexus and Acura. MSRP was about the same on all three. The key difference was that the Acura RL had all the options mentioned above as standard, on the BMW and Lexus they were all at an extra cost. There was no discerning difference in performance between the 3. Going into my 9th year with the Acura RL and its still performing as well as when it was new, Great car."
