Acura still sells the RL, but it just doesn't sell.

I don't think I have seen a single facelifted RL on the road.

I too have not seen any 2009+ RLs on the road as of yet either! It just sells so badly for Acura. It needs to be scrapped and completely redone and I don't have the slightest clue why Acura is procrastinating on it

earlier this week that stated Honda will be dropping the Legend from its home market lineup. Guess that means it's adios to the TOTALLY pointless RL as well, eh? Talk about a great line of cars coming to an ignominious end. Anyone besides me remember the first Legend?
In 10 short years HMC fell completely off its game with both the Honda and Acura lineups in America. It's no wonder nobody cares. The Cross Tour and the ZDX?? What were they thinking?

no, I made the mistake as well but autoblog and Acura issued a correction later that day! The Legend in Japan is being discontinued but the RL here in the States is remaining as Acura's flagship!

I agree. It would be a different thing if Acura had come out and said or at least hinted of their plans for the RL, such as completely redoing it, where it was going to compete, etc but we have gotten diddly quat from Acura other then they are going to be keeping it here.
They know it sells very poorly, so why not at least give some of us Acura buyers some hope that they are going to turn that car around in the near future?? Just boggles the mind.
