"I travel for work and have put a lot of miles on this car. Highly recommend this car. The newer ones have some nice updates with the new saved music files and xm radio weather, but over all the 2005 is very similar to the new models and I actually prefer the looks of the front grill on my 2005 compared to more recent years."
"I was looking at buying a used TL until I test drove a RL. What a difference. This car does it all. The voice recognition isn't the best, but other than that a great car for the price. Rides great, handles great and looks great. With your keys in your pocket you can unlock all the doors and trunk by just touching the handle. Hit the unlock button and then hold down on the unlock button on your remote and it will roll down your windows and open the moon roof. Nice on a hot day. I did it from 40 yards. The TL is for people who still have the need for speed and don't mind feeling all the little rocks and bumps on the road. The RL is for us who are looking for a comfortable ride."
"The 2005 RL is my second Acura and I will buy another for sure. Easy to shop for since they include almost every imaginable option. Never a mechanical problem with either Acura. Performance, styling and finish are first-class and, in spite of some negative reviews I have seen related to gas mileage, I have been pleased with mine. . . 27 mpg on road trips. 85,000 miles on the first one (no good reason for getting rid of it, really) and 42,000 on this one without a malfunction of any kind. One complaint only...the RL trunk space is surprisingly limited. I can carry four big golfers but only two sets of clubs!"
"I've driven the equivalent BMW, Audi, and Lexus models, and the Acura RL beats them in price, features, and handling. The car has fairly indistinct designing, but it says to others that you value luxury features, but aren't willing to pay luxury prices. It's all wheel drive system makes driving in rain and snow as easy as driving on dry pavement. The cockpit is well designed to give the driver the feeling that the car is countoured around him. A pre-owned RL is only a few thousand more than the Acura TL, and it comes with far better features, such as AWD, larger seating areas, and refined styling."
"I have had this vehicle 2 years (since new)and it has spent a total of over 4 weeks in the Acura shop with various electrical and air conditioning problems. This is my 8th Honda/Acura product and it's the only one that's spent any time in the shop. It has great electronics, and a fine AWD system. While it's performance is adequate, it does not match up with some of the German made vehicles I have owned previously."
