2000 Acura RL Reviews
I have a 2000 3.5 RL, bought used in 2003 with 50000 miles.
I now have 360,000 miles. A great car. I kept all maintenance. A lot of money was spent to keep it top notch. A very reliable car.
The following were problems encountered since I bought the car 10 years ago.
1. emission control
2. Electrical Problems, such as alarm sounding off un-necessarily, that causes the fuse to blow off. Trunk does not open from inside. Steering adjustment control does not work.
3. Brakes does not apply immediately, even with new rotors including new brake pads.
4.Numerious gasket replacement problems, which is very costly.
5. Door regulator problems
6. Shock assober or strut problems.
7. Interior leader seats cracks, driver door shoulder rest, venial and seat bottom covers are not good.
Overall the car worth keeping to the end.
