The 2005-2008 generation Acura RL is high-quality value for the money. It was difficult to find a relatively low-mileage one. Owners seem to keep them forever. I've put 4,500 miles on the one I bought and understand why owners don't trade them. It's a car that delivers sports-sedan performance and handling with a smooth, quiet ride -- fun around town; a sheer pleasure on long highway trips.
The thoroughness with which Honda designed and built the car is impressive. From the outside to the inside to the underside, the attention to detail is wonderful. My prior cars include a BMW 740i that I had for 11 years and 125,000 miles. I like this RL more!
CarMax has been great, from sales to follow-up service on a few minor warranty related items. They set the standard all other businesses should follow.
just buy it!

Most overlooked luxury car

You may not have noticed many 2nd generation RLs on the road, and if so you are not alone. They are understated in an elegant way, and a great way to have top quality without shouting "look at me". These are fabulous cars. Their ride is wonderful, AWD cornering adds to the performance, and of course helps in winter. Their stereo is fantastic. Google the car and read the origingal reviews and favorable comparisons with BMW etc. Read Acurazine to see the passion owners have. These are sleepers and may be the best value on the used market. Remember they are the top product of the Honda/Acura line, and listed for 50k when new.
The Acura MDX, which entered the market in 2001, was designed to address the need for a high-performance people-mover with an abundance of luxury features. Although the MDX replaced Acura’s SLX, its build was actually based on the popular Honda Pilot. In true Acura style, this newly-developed SUV was infused with the highest-quality comfort and performance features available.
If you’re conducting used car research to find a deal on pre-owned luxury vehicles, it only makes sense to learn about the Acura TL—a car with touring luxury actually built into its name. The Acura TL is a mid-sized luxury car that succeeded the Acura Vigor and was produced between 1996 and 2014. While the first-generation Acura TL (1996 to 1998) was manufactured in Japan, production soon shifted to the Honda plant in Marysville, Ohio.
