This guy is a fairly pro-Honda reviewer... but it’s a very luke warm review of the refreshed RLX. He’s mostly spot on.

hate that reviewer. especially when he says "to be honest"

why does he lie alot?

I didn't watch it cuz i dont care about the rlx at all or the reviewer but im betting he said to be honest 5 x at least?

maybe 10x?

But I know this asian guy is usually a honda fan boy so its not good to hear his opinion. watch from a neutral guy's perspective. like alex on autos

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oddv34El0yk

he is creditable and has the respect of everyone.

And he said he would chose it over the Lexus GS450H

true the gs is trash but still!!!! Its a nice thing to hear from such a high ranking neutral guy.

LOL, the GS is trash? Have you ever even driven one or been in one?

It sells pretty good and gets pretty good reviews for being "trash", normally over 5 times as much as the RLX.

The MMC front end and new shitty 4 cylinder were disappointing though and the hybrid is unimpressive but the 6 cylinder GS and GS-F are great cars.

The GS is trash? The market says differently. The GS350 F-Sport and the GSF are much more fun to drive vs any Acura sedan.

I dont think Acura wanted RLX Sport Hybrid to be compared with other hybrids.only I have not seen any reviewer comparing SHSH version to GS 350 (non hybrid), A6, XF, 540xi etc. That was the market Acura was trying to sell this product.

Aaah.. aren't you too old for K-Pop? Although, most Koreans, even the old ones, watch it on TV.

Hehe...This reviewer is suggesting that people don't buy the RLX because they don't "know" how "good" it is. He is probably a proponent of the idea that people buy certain other luxury brands based primarily on the emblem on the front and back. Luxury shoppers do purchase based on the emblem on the front and back. Sadly, like others, he doesn't seem to stop to ask why these other brands command so much more respect and inspire more "aspirational purchases". It's the buyer's choice to not compromise on say materials, styling, proportions, power, etc. simply because the car drives decently. Its the buyer's choice as to what compromises they will accept, or to accept no compromises at all. It's a choice. Maybe, just maybe people aren't "choosing" the RLX because it simply doesn't offer what they want in this class.

Just to clarify honda fans are more harsh on honda if 'THEY' are not happy with the product.

In this case the redline guy.

I've bashed many fine hondas because i didnt like them. it happens on TOV the most.

So dont trust this guy in this case. I know it sounds counter intuitive but he would get DESTROYED if he liked it i guess on youtube.


AGAIN, i didnt watch it and wont ever. But a guy like Alex on Autos commands so much respect he can say the truth even if its NOT POPULAR. and still his comment section is relatively civil.

So, if you’ve liked Hondas in the past and have given them good reviews in the past, you must now be dishonest when examining the RLX???

Two comments about a reviewer you “hate” and a model about which you don’t care. Makes sense.

no honda fans are more critical of hondas when 'THEY' dont like something. not when its a bad product.

For proof. read TOV during EVERY new car release. 50/50 hate/love every release. and the harshness is REAL.

Just seems odd that you wouldn’t watch the review, then comment on it — that’s all. How do you know if you agree or disagree with the issues he discussed?

This guys opinion is FAR more valid than yours. He is objective and calls a turd a turd.

I watched the redline review and thought he's decently positive about the new RLX.

What he said is similar to what most other reviews have said. That is, the RLX is roomy, comfortable, well equipped, cheaper than others when equipped similarly, drives well but not extremely sporty.

Yep. Same could be said about the Buick LaCrosse. Nice but not in the same brand echelon as MB or BMW — if I’m being honest. ;)

My take on it is that reviewers generally don't want to come across too negatively because then nobody wants them to review their cars later. I do not know this for a fact, that's just what makes sense to me. That savagegeese guy is always negative, but he's also funny as hell, so he's a bit of a different case.

I watched the entire review and I don't feel like he "trashed" the RLX at all. I don't know if that's the word I'd use.

He did seem to enjoy driving it and insinuated that folks are not buying it because they just don't know about it or how good it drives. Well, goes back to Acura and their lack of cachet. That's on Acura, not the customer.

That's what I thought too. Click baited.

I don't think it's competitive but it is unique in the class.
