This replaced Hyundai Equus, which did not handle well. RLX is a great improvement. It handles better, is faster and gets better mileage. I'm also more comfortable with Honda reliability and the additional safety equipment the car is equipped with.

Too few features for a high price.

Features were lacking. No way to increase the volume of the warning notifications. I traded for a 2020 model (another brand) and got all the missing features with almost $20,000.00 lower price.

Smooth and comfortable ride for a great price.

Have it for a few weeks and loving it after moving from German cars. Great looks on the outside, and very roomy inside (I'm rather tall.) I understand why they didn't sell well, no one wanted to spend $60k on an Acura.Bought it at 5,000 miles. For the price I couldn't find another similar sized sedan with less than 30k miles and warranty expiring next year. Still have 95,000 left on the drive train warranty. Responsive when needed and enough power for me. Infotainment system could get an update but already getting used to it. Loaded with more features than I need and with everything said, can't deny the reliability.
