Happy Acura Owner
September 8, 2017
Bought a 2002 RL outright, in near perfect condition, with 58,000 miles on it in 2010 for less than nineteen grand. Thereafter I put a little over 140,000 more miles on it before trading it in. In that time the only money spent on the car was on gas, oil changes, one set of tires, one all around brake job, and a new A.C. compressor. At the time Acura built this model to compete with Mercedes Benz of that year, so it was comparable in speed, braking, handling, mileage, quiet ride and luxury to that year Benz. On average these Acura RL's in that year go 250,000 miles before everything starts wearing out, however be warned that at 200,000 a timing belt replacement is required. And it is costly since Acura built it in such a way that the engine has to be removed to perform this maintenance.
