Last of a timeless design
Not exactly sure why the TL got all of the attention, but I think the RL has the nicer lines of this era. Fit and finish is good. Materials used in the interior hold up well even after 15 years. No shakes, rattles, or chirps. The 3.5 liter V6 is no beast but is suffix for what the car is. Acura might have done better with this model if a SH and S-type trim were available for this generation. Some folks want a flagship with the very best the brand has to offer. Still even lacking all wheel drive and probably what would have amounted to an extra 50 ponies wasn’t enough to prevent me from taking a serious look at owning one. Some folks compare the RL to the highly acclaimed Lexus LS line of the time. In my humble opinion they are two very different animals. Lexus redefined what luxury would become for all auto manufacturers both domestically and abroad. To me, Acura did a better job on the lines of the car, even if it didn’t come close to the amenities or power of the LS. As for reliability, Acura/Honda has more than proven their ability to produce engines and transmissions that will go well over the 300k mark on the odometer if not abused, as examples of such a claim can be found just about everywhere.
