Year / Model Reviewed:
Amount of features, particularly compared to similarly priced vehicles. Outstanding gas mileage, great handling, good acceleration, quiet and very comfortable ride.
More XM presets than just 12 needed...how about another 6-12. Car can be a little slow off the gun, but gets going quickly.
I bought a used 05 RL about a month ago. 43000 miles on it, paid 26,995 and bought the bumper to bumper 7yr/100000k warranty for an extra $900.
Can't say enough good things about this car. Handles great, very good acceleration, quiet, but still leaves you in touch with the road. Electronics are a bit overwhelming, but they all work well and over time suspect I will learn them better. Wish it had more than 12 xm presets. Gas mileage is phenominal, got 30 mpg on a 400 mile highway trip on 89 octane gas. have been averaging 25 city/suburban. I don't drive it hard, but the trick is to quickly get the car into 5th gear and ride it down to about 37-40, which keeps rpms around 1500 or slightly lower. Styling on outside is a little bland, but not bad, interior is superb!
Most people that have sat in this car have commented that it's as nice as mercedes/BMw's they've sat it.
