Acura re-designed the RL in 2005 to break away form the prior mold of boxy, softer riding luxury cruiser, to create a much sleeker, better handling car that included nearly all cutting edge technology available at the time. 300HP VTEC power coupled with the remarkable SH-AWD system is technology that you feel any time you are driving it.
By the way, one owner mentioned his displeasure with the auto-lowering side mirrors when the car is placed in reverse. True, but easily disengaged by utilizing the user setup system while sitting at the wheel. This car has so many user settings to dial in the features just for you. Example - personally, I hate car door lock systems that only unlock the drivers door when you hit the remote (all doors when you hit it twice, I know). I also do not like the doors automatically locking at some speed putting it in gear or whatever. I was able to program out both of these functions that I'm sure were attractive to someone else.
Two sets of proximity key fobs come with the car. Both have their own identity allowing two people to set the user settings to each of their personal likings, including all adjustments for seats, mirrors, voice nav and bluetooth address settings, radio stations and preferences, temperature settings, ect, ect.
If you can find one of the 2005 models with proper service records and an agreeable price, you will have the opportunity to own one of the slickest cars to ever come from the Honda Motor Company, and you know their reputation for reliability..
