RL - AWD
TL - FWD
Both fine vehicles.

You can see what to look for by looking at the Stickies topics at the top of the forum page. One of them is a list of RL topics. You can also find a lot of old threads on this question by using the Search function.

Cant speak to the TL, but my 05 RL door handle lock sensors do not work once it gets wet. The unlock works fine, but you have to use the FOB to lock it if its raining or you just washed it. That's a very common problem. Sometimes the memory settings don't adjust my steering wheel automatically after starting. Not a big deal but it's a minor annoyance. Sometimes the cruise control cancel button is unresponsive, so I have to tap the brake or turn off cruise. I dont get to use cruise very often, so it's not a big deal as I anticipate stops anyways. Tires are EXPENSIVE, as with all parts for this car. Acura marked up the parts for the RL significantly over same part numbers for other vehicles. I still love this car even with the few issues I mentioned. Great factory sound system.

I finally bought a 05 (err, I know) RL last weekend and I LOVE IT. If you can get a clean car with good tires for a good price I'd say it's worth it. It's more like a 09-14 TL and even then only the elite package which is $$.
