That's pretty low mileage, which for a Honda/Acura product means the car has hardly been broken in...that's a good thing insofar as dollar value goes.In a nutshell, it's a good deal if you really like & want that particular car. However, you still might shop around to solidify your options.The '03 RL is part of Acura's first generation release of its full-sized sedan. It didn't sell real well. Some might complain that it lacked enough pizazz as far as styling goes. Some also complained that it is under-powered...225 hp V6, I believe. BTW, the current RLs crank 290 horses. On the other hand, it's a Honda product that was well engineered, comfortable, & every bit the competitor to its Lexus counterpart. The new (Gen 2) RL sells in the low 50's range. I'm guessing that a used '05 might be had in the high 30's to low 40's range...they hold their value well. If you have a yen for the RL model, you might take a look at one of those, assuming it fits your budget. You'll find the current RL model to be quite a bit more advanced than its predicessor. And as mentioned, you might shop to compare with used Lexus GS series sedans. Both Acura & Lexus are great product lines!

Thats way too much even with low miles. Its almost 5 years old. The new ones are about $50k and sell pretty poorly. I bet you could find a much newer one for that price.Snooky is right its a good car though.

No. You can buy a brand new TL for that.
