RLX Sightings

With the exception of people who have bought a new RLX, has anyone seen one on the road yet?

I live about 5 miles from my local Acura dealer and drive around that area everyday and have not seen one on the road yet!

Really funny, I actually saw my customer on the road the other day. I gave her a quick phone call to tell her "hi" and check on how she was coming along with the new car.

I haven't seen a single one since the Cleveland Auto Show.

Oddly, I have seen three ILXs in the last 24 hours, though. They appear to be selling like hotcakes here in Cleveland.

None on the road yet, besides the one I test drove recently. Although my dealer has one that is a sold unit.

They are not released here in Canada yet so I haven't seen any either, heck, never even seen the car in the flesh yet I will say this, where I live, seeing an Acura is extremely rare (except for the MDX which I think there is 5 or 6) so if I ever bought an RLX, I would be given the keys to the city due to the exclusive car I would be driving *lol*

I will say this, I am really eager to see the RLX in person though.....

Really? Weather, Acura is rare in your neck of the wood? I see quite a few 4G TL's here, and TONS of MDX here in Calgary - it's like everybody and their mother has an MDX around here! LOL! Must have to do with the weather here (no pun intended! LOL)

I would love to see the RLX in person and then decide for myself how I like the exterior styling! ;-)

I've seen several, but then Acuras seem to be quite popular here.

Besides the two at the dealer, I have not seen one RLX on the road yet in the NYC / LI area.

MDX's however are all over.

I still have not seen one and I commute close to an hour each way
Today had extended lunch in SF outside on the Embarcadero. I'd say several 1000 cars drove by. Not 1 RLX. Hard to believe

They sold 736 cars nationwide so they will be rare. New Accord sold like 200,000 cars and I only see 1-4 a day

To be honest, the fact that the RLX likely won't sell in big numbers is a positive factor in my choice to buy one. I'd rather drive a car that you don't see on every street corner even if that exclusivity is not necessarily planned or desired by the manufacturer.

To stay on topic, I don't think the RLX has even been delivered to dealers in Canada yet and so, no sightings to report.

Another nada from the NYC area. But I have seen 2 Karma Fiskers, 1 Tesla (I think), and 2 Mazda6s. Either the RLX is a rare car or there's a cloaking device for the top level trim.

Wink Finally

Just saw my 1st 1 in the wild. It was in passing so I could only tell that it was black.

I suspect that I know who it belongs to: there is a guy that works in another department that had a 2005 RL which he traded for a 2009 RL. I was wondering if he was going to get a 2014 RLX ... since this 1 came from the direction of his job I think that it is him.

Wink #2

I was waiting at a stop sign & for a car to pull out of a driveway; I did not take note of what the car was but as soon as it turned towards me I immediately noticed the jewel eye headlights. Someone down the street from me bought an RLX - Gilded Pewter color.

All 3 dealerships in my area have actually been selling them (1 of them has only 1 left). I am pleasantly surprised as I thought it would be more like the ZDX or 2009 RL which sat on the lots for months.

I'm starting to like the styling more and more.. Not the wheels

I'm not sure if that is a good thing that it seemed anonymous (my words) until you saw the headlights.

To be fair I was not paying any attention to what type of car it was, I was at a stop signing waiting for a traffic opening so I could make a left turn. So my mind was kind of focused on driving but those headlights are hard to miss even when you are not paying attention.

However, I will say that they RLX is pretty bland from the side - but I think that most cars are, especially when in motion and you cannot see the rims. It is usually the grille & front/rear lights that catch my eye.

Honestly; I didnt know it was the RLX.

He was behind then took the middle lane to over take me to come to the red light.(pictured above)
I sat behind it a good minute before realizing what it was.
I quickly grabbed the DLSR in the passenger seat and just started snapping away.


Bland from the back,as it took me a minute to figure it out.

as the light went green, I took the middle lane and gassed it a little, so now that I'm in front one lane over from him.
this is where I stuck the cam out the window and clicked.





ITS GORGEOUS from the front! I love it!


the picture where he's in the middle lane; shows off the beautiful head light housing. I love the angles.

Aren't cars within the same brand supposed to resemble each other? Don't the BMW 3, 5, 7 series resemble?

Saw a CBP RLX leaving my subdivision this evening. Very nice looking car. Not a car for the "look at me" crowd, but it was very attractive in a subtle and conservative way.

Yeah, the white RLX is nice looking!

I personally would like the RLX to be less bland and less conservative looking. However, I can see why some folks would love its looks....
