03 Acura 3. 5rl and how it lasted multiple moves across states.

Reliable vehicle. Purchased second hand at dealership at 50k miles. Currently vehicle is 15 years old and 167k miles. Will replace soon due to wear and tear type of damages. Fuel economy is something to be desired. Vehicle exceeded all of my expectations for an 03 model.

- Steve N

Acura is reliable and well-made.

The Acura rl is very reliable. Mine is over 170, 000 miles and still running well. It has a lot of room, but it does sit kinda low to the ground. The engine seems to still be running well. My only recent issue has been some of the belts deteriorating.

- Chris H

Not a great first car. Better for someone who can afford regular upkeeps and repairs.

I've had it for 3 years. Gets me to and from work, comfortable. The gas mileage has gone down significantly since I've had it which is unfortunate since I moved to a higher traffic area.
