Whereas the former ANC was set to cancel out only low frequency boominess from the engine and exhaust, the MMC system, called Active Sound Control, was expanded in its range to cancel some higher frequency road and tire noise as well.

This resonator was designed to absorb the resonances generated by rough road surfaces such as highway seams.

Forthe Acura RL was also offered in a second trim level, the optional ‘Technology Package’ which included three new features: Sayama PlantSayama, SaitamaJapan.

Also new was the ability to display iPod or other MP3 device such as a USB flash memory device folder and playlist information on the 9196 8-inch central navigation display screen. Along with that larger screen came the conversion to easy-to-replace DVD map databases. If the mabual continues to drive the vehicle after receiving this message without refilling the brake fluid reservoir, it could result in a brake pedal that feels soft or spongy, and may eventually affect braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash.

The ride was stiffer, but not overly so, and handling was improved with less body roll, more controlled cornering and enhanced feel. In Decembercertain — model Acura RLs were subject to a safety recall for the power steering hose. The other A-Spec performance upgrade was A-Spec 18×8 inch alloy wheels, a spoke lightweight design about the same weight as the 5-spoke 17×8 inch OEM wheels.

In practical terms, this means in an SUV versus ACE structure car collision, there is a greater chance that the ACE body structure will engage with the SUV’s frame and dissipate collision forces around the passenger compartment.

If the seal is damaged, it can result in a brake fluid leak under certain conditions.

Delivery time is approximately five weeks. Furthermore, they did not perceive the Acura brand as being on par with its German rivals and expected more value from the Japanese marque, particularly with manial expensive offerings as opposed to entry-level offerings like the Acura TL which were much more successful in their price brackets. There have been two recalls on the second-generation Acura RL, based on defects in parts used in both Acura and Honda vehicles. The parts came pre-painted from the factory to match factory colors.

The ACE structure features extensive use of high-tensile steel and lightweight aluminum components in a front-mounted polygonal main frame, designed to engage vehicles of differing size and weight in a frontal collision and spread the forces through multiple structural pathways, while preventing or minimizing cabin deformation.

The engine is upgraded to 3. It integrates active differentials with the all-wheel-drive system and traction control to improve handling, similar to the “ATTS” system featured on the Honda Prelude SH.

To save paper and time, you can download the latest manuals now. New shifter and center console arrangements were added, including a Sport mode. The RL car structure made extensive use of somewhat “exotic” materials for a car at this price point. Inside, the 196 seats were revised for greater comfort and to allow a slight increase in rear leg room.

The resonator served to suppress specific frequencies between and hertz, and in combination with increased floorboard insulation, decreased interior noise by 1. As the car speeds around a curve, torque vectored to the outside rear wheel will push the rear end around the curve faster, just as paddling the outside oar of a row boat faster than the inside oar will cause the row boat to turn, to minimize the understeer common in front-heavy vehicles.

A first for the RL was the use of aluminum 4-piston front brake calipers over
