Everyone knows that the current Acura RL is almost as big of a flop as WebTV.
It's to small for the segment.
It's too expensive.
The drive is numb.
It's too heavy in the corners.
The exterior design is blandness on wheels.
On the positive side, it has a beautiful interior (albeit too small, especially in back) and great electronics technology.
But if it were our money and we were looking for a luxury japanese car, we'd buy the new ES350 and pocket $15G's.
The ES is better looking.
It drives nicer, more nimble.
The cabin is acres larger.
The exterior and interior finish quality is better.
You can get a panoramic roof and the stereo sounds way nicer.
The Lexus dealer experience compared to the Acura dealer experience is like comparing the Ritz-Carlton to the Holiday Inn Express.
The resale value will smoke the RL's.
