I really enjoyed driving the car and overall features, but the dealers think it's a new car price, when there's a $28K depression value in it the first year, then $2.5K each additional year. Some dealer understand that and price it right, most don't which suck limiting chooses as there are very few out there. Most are off lease.

I have had my car towed twice and the first time the dealership said I left on the map light and it drained the battery. This time the dealer said the car started when they moved the car, but this was after the car was jumped. I feel there is a faulty design somewhere which is draing the battery.

Previous owner, made an upgrade

by from New Jersey on June 17, 2017

The car meets all expectations. It embodies all of the qualities a luxury vehicle should posses such as comfort, reliability, fuel efficiency, good performance just all around a great vehicle.

Krell stereo is the best.

I have owned a lot of cars, BMW 740, M5, Benz 350, Infinity M35, Genesis, Lincoln MKS, Jag FX, Caddy's. All good cars with upgraded sound systems. Meridian, Harmon Kardon, Bose, B&O, Lexicon. None sound as good as the Krell system. It only has 450w with 12 speakers and a small 8 inch sub, but don't go by the numbers, it is crystal clear with zap, like riding around in a concert hall. The car rides great, quiet and plush....better than the BMW 740, which I thought was very nice to drive.

Really it's a great car and I'v had my fare share of cars but hear a noise everytime I turn the heat or ac on and I took it to the acura dealership and they said that is a normal sound for the RLX. So I'm very disappointed with this issue and when my warranty end I will be looking at another car that don't make a sound with the air and heat on.. If someone else know of this issue please let ,e know what the fix is... Thanks

Start-up/Battery Drainage Problem

This would be a great car if not for a problem with something draining the battery. I purchased the car in May 2014; Had to call Acura roadside assistance to start car in Jan 2015, and again in Sep 2015. The car was taken to the dealership to be checked out after each incident, but maintenance personnel could not find the problem. The only thing they could tell me for sure, was that there was no problem with the battery, They suggested that I might not be driving the car often or far enough, or that I might be storing the keys less than 15 feet away from the car. When I called Acura I was told the same thing, which to me suggested that because neither organization could find out what was draining the battery, they somehow figured I was doing something wrong. .It is very frustrating to be paying so much for an unreliable car. Too bad I didn't buy a Mercedes.

I'm on MY 8th Acura( 6 of them being RL's) I am shocked at that LEAP backward that Acura has taken with the RLX. My previous car was a 2011 RL that was clearly the best car I have owned.It was tech savvy and EASY to use, it had ALL-WHEEL drive,it had AIR-CONDITIONED SEATS, the navigation provided weather and ACTUAL traffic incidents and construction reports and the Bluetooth was so easy a monkey could use it.Also, when driving you could program any location or a new location into the nav system. NONE of these features exist on the new RLX. In addition the concierge service for $600 is without question a major ripoff. It's not the price ----it's the principle it doesn't work for "instant" traffic. I've had multiple problems with the traffic system and the Link feature.My concern and complaint is that the system DOES NOT WORK. Acura subbed out this system to a third party who presumably re-wrote the software.I'm sure Acura got the cheapest price in doing so.Well it shows!!! I have finally complained to the Acura owner's relations people. I am awaiting their callback. But in the meantime, I challenge ANY ACURA technical person to see my car and tell me I'm wrong about the nav /traffic system. I believe based on a review of their brochure that this would qualify with the FTC as false advertising. I know this site does not want disclosure of names/ e-mails so i'll just say that I live in So. Windsor,Ct and I purchased the car on 10/28/13. Maybe someone from Acura reads these reviews and will contact -it shouldn't be too difficult.

Battery Issues from Day One

Have now had the RLX for 12 months. Battery replaced once, towed by AAA six times to the dealership with an intermittent dead battery issue. The dealership cannot locate the electrical drain causing the battery to fail. Whenever the car is jump started the computer resets and the vehicle works fine for a few days, then the dreaded weak or dead battery. Their most common suggestion is to make sure we drive the car every day to keep the battery charged and take longer trips. Supposedly if the car sits for three or four days the battery could drain far enough to not start the vehicle. Too many visits to the dealer with unsatisfactory results, yet the dealer says they cannot trace the problem, so no lemon law violations. Contacted Honda Regional in Torrance and the same response. They cannot find the problem, so sorry about the inconvenience. So the car has become a garage queen and at one year old has just 3,000 miles on the odometer. Too many accessories controlled by the computer and Honda/Acura seems baffled unless it's a simple solution. Next time will stick to MB or BMW for a car in this price range. Previous Accords were quite reliable, upgrade to a RLX and seems Honda is over their head in trying to compete with the imports in the luxury category.
