Value Writeup

Acura's flagship RL offers more standard equipment for the dollar than most of its competitors. All-wheel drive, a premium sound system, and a luxurious interior are all standard. Even with the rest of the bells and whistles, such as navigation, adaptive cruise control, and collision mitigation braking, still makes it one of the best luxury sedan values in the market.


Model News

Acura has slightly juggled their RL lineup for 2007, allowing consumers to get behind the driver's seat for slightly less than last year. An entry-level 2007 RL retails for $45,780--its lowest price since the 2004 model year.

To achieve this price reduction, the base style was gently decontented, losing its NavTraffic live traffic navigation system, active front lighting and wood interior trim. This year's Tech Package adds all of that equipment back to the vehicle (essentially recreating last year's base style) as well as a rearview camera and AcuraLink satellite communication for $100 more than 2006's $49,300. Opting for the vehicle's third guise by ordering run-flat tires, adaptive cruise control and Honda's collision mitigation braking system boosts the price another $3,800 to $53,200.

Remote retractable headrests and an MP3 auxiliary jack have been added to all RLs for the new model year as well.


Pros

Standard all-wheel drive; well-appointed interior, technology galore


Model Highlights

The RL is Acura's entry in the mid-sized luxury sedan market, and it remains one of the best appointed sedans in its class. With all-wheel drive, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, heated leather seats, a moonroof, tire pressure monitoring, a Bose AM/FM/6-disc CD changer with an auxiliary jack and XM satellite radio, and a power rear sun shade all standard, the RL delivers in most areas. It even boasts active noise cancellation to reduce cabin noise levels, thereby saving weight on sound deadening materials.

The RL is powered by a 290-hp V6 which is one of the more powerful six-cylinder engines in its class. The V6 is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode. Independent suspension all around and front and rear stabilizer bars completes the package.

Standard safety features include electronic brake distribution, stability and traction controls, fog lights, xenon headlights, front air bags with an occupant sensor, and front and rear side curtain air bags. Acura's Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), which applies the brakes and tightens the front seatbelts when it senses an imminent head-on collision, is optional, as are run-flat tires. Throw in the car's five-star crash rating (one of only 4 in its class), and the RL becomes one of the safest vehicles on the road.

The optional Tech Package includes a rearview camera, AcuraLink's satellite communication, and a navigation system that gives live traffic updates as well as Zagat survey results for area restaurants.

Though not as flashy (or as expensive) as some of its V8 rivals, the RL proves to be capable in nearly all driving circumstances, and is consistently one of the top performers in its segment.

Summary
HONDA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2007 ODYSSEY AND ACURA RL VEHICLES. BRAKE FLUID CONTAINING POLYMERS IS USED THAT ACTS AS A LUBRICANT FOR CERTAIN BRAKE SYSTEM COMPONENTS. IF REPLACEMENT BRAKE FLUID IS USED THAT DOES NOT CONTAIN SUCH POLYMERS, OR THAT CONTAINS ONLY SMALL AMOUNTS, A PART OF THE RUBBER SEAL LOCATED AT THE REAR OF THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER MAY BECOME DRY, AND THE SEAL MAY CURL DURING MOVEMENT OF THE PISTON. IF THIS OCCURS, A SMALL AMOUNT OF BRAKE FLUID COULD SLOWLY LEAK FROM THE SEAL INTO THE BRAKE BOOSTER.

Consequence
A LEAK OF BRAKE FLUID COULD LEAD TO A CHANGE IN BRAKE PEDAL FEEL AND OVERTIME A DEGRADATION IN BRAKING PERFORMANCE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE BRAKE MASTER CYLINDER SEAL FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING DECEMBER 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT HONDA AT 1-800-999-1009.

SAFETY RECALL NO. R51 HONDA R52 ACURA. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
