Sensor Problems May Cause SRS Light To Turn On

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to failure of the exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve), or restricted passages in the engine related to the EGR system.

Acura RL Reviews

I am a proud owner of my 1999 Acura 3.5RL (White) with Navigation. I acquired the vehicle when i was in College as my previous Acura (Integra) was totaled in 2006. The 3.5RL had about 128,000 from one owner and now i have little over 492,000 and still running strong. I work as a consultant so i choose to drive every where with my RL. In my family we have owned other vehicles like Audi A6 4.2 bu...

Not hot rods, per se, but totally reliable luxo-cruisers. If you can find a clean one wi...
