RepairPal Expert Overview:
Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.
RepairPal Expert Overview:
Use of incorrect brake fluid may cause a rubber seal in the rear of the master cylinder to become dry and leak. The leaking fluid will enter the brake booster and may not be visible externally. A loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected seal on all master cylinders, leaking or not. This recall is scheduled to begin during December of 2010. The Acura recall number is R52; the Honda Recall Number is R51.

2006 Acura RL Reviews
AC unit went at 75K.
AFS and VSA lights are on now (135K), but no codes to shut off as I had car checked by electrical repair guy. My AFS isn't working (lights don't go side to side or up down). VSA I can't tell.
Now I *have* to bring to dealer (and pay the exorbitant diagnostic fees).
I've also replaced door lock actuators on car - one at 110K and one at 130K
2000 RL went 212K when I traded it in for this one, very few minor issues. In my world I am 1-for-2 in the world of RLs. With the Hyundai Genesis looking like a nice car, I'm seriously thinking of that as a next vehicle.
I BROUGHT MY 2006 RL IN 2009. IT WAS CERT. I GOT IT AT A NICE PRICE. I DID ALL THE MAINTENANCE AT THE TIMES THEY WS SUPPOSE TO BE DONE. KNOCKING ON WOOD, I HAVE NOT HAD ANY PROBLEMS AT ALL WITH IT. IT RUNS LIKE A CHAMP. I THINK IT THE LUCK OF THE DRAW. THE DAY THE CAR WAS BUILT ETC. MON. FRI. AS ANYTHING IN LIFE NEVER DO NOTHING ON THESE TWO DAYS MON, PEOPLE ARE COMING OFF OF A HANG OVER OR SOMETHING. FRI PEOLPE ARE IN A HURRY TO GO HOME.
Bought New 2006 RL - Excellent, Reliable, No issues till date. Did oil change based on MID (Display Panel). Replaced Tires 45K, Brakes 76K, Nothing else.
