The RL wouldn’t be Acura’s flagship sedan if it didn’t provide both luxury and a long-standing track record of reliability. Previously called the Acura “Legend”, the 4-door sedan has been in the lineup since the beginning of Acura’s 25 year history. A recent article by Forbes named the 2012 Acura RL one of 14 models likely to run for over 200,000 miles.
“For those with an eye on owning a car or truck for the long run, we’ve identified a list of 14 model-year 2012 vehicles that are statistically among the least likely to encounter major mechanical problems in at least the first several years of ownership. Our list consists of 14 cars and trucks that received top scores in both the most-recent Consumer Reports Car Reliability survey, based on problems reported by 1.3 million owners of model-year 2005-2010 vehicles, and the J.D. Power and Associates U.S. Vehicles Dependability Study based on responses from more than 43,700 original owners of 2008 model-year vehicles.” – Jim Gorzelany, Forbes.com
I have no doubt a well maintained RL will run beyond 200,000 miles. Need more proof? Check out Tyson Hugie’s 500,000 mile Acura Legend.
