Video: 2011 Acura RL Golf Cart Review

Posted by   on October 19th, 2011 1 comment

The 2011 Acura RL used as a golf cart? Nick Jaynes of Downforce Motoring takes the RL to Heron Lakes Golf Course in this humorous and entertaining “Top Gear” inspired video review.

There really aren’t too many video reviews of the upgraded 2011 Acura RL, so kudos to the guys over at Downforce Motoring for putting together a lengthy and unique review.

I was even surprised by an RL feature I’ve never seen before: the electronically controlled rear window shade. Who knew?

The Editors at Motor Trend have made the verdict on the 2010 Acura ZDX in the final update of their Long Term Review. They’ve finally decided that well… they’re still pretty much undecided.

“The sign of any good design is when it causes strong reactions, negative or positive. Our long-term ZDX certainly didn’t leave our editors on middle ground. Even a full year and 25,000 miles later, opinions are still split on whether Acura hit the nail square on the head with its swoopy crossover or whacked its thumb in a painful blunder.” – Mike Febbo, Motor Trend

Over the past year they’ve made a total of 7 entry updates and compiled a nice collection of photos of the 2010 Acura ZDX in a variety of settings.

Head over to motortrend.com for the final verdict or check out the list of past updates below.

Acura ZDX Four Seasons Review Wrap-Up

After a year of testing with the all new 2010 Acura ZDX, the editors at Automobile Magazine conclude their Four Seasons Review.

“Our first drive of the ZDX a few months later revealed Acura’s newest creation to be highly luxurious and even quite good to drive. But we still wondered about its place in the automotive cosmos. Clearly, we would require more time with the ZDX if we were going to get our heads around it. So, we ordered one for a Four Seasons test.” – Joe Lorio, Automobile magazine

Automobile Magazine 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Tech Review

2012 Acura TL SH-AWD Tech © Automobile Magazine

You really can’t find any bad press on the six-speed manual transmission found in the 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD. In a recent Automobile Magazine review, every editor could agree the smooth shifting Honda gearbox is a rare treat they could all appreciate.

“The six-speed manual changes that. Thanks to one of Honda’s legendary gearboxes, the Acura TL can claim a superlative: Best Shifting Sport Sedan. It’s better than the slightly rubbery gear change in the BMW 3-series and better than the somewhat notchy action in the Audi A4/S4. Whereas I couldn’t really remember anything defining about the slushbox TL, I will be blathering for weeks about the precise perfection that is the TL’s manual transmission.” – David Zenlea, Assistant Editor
