Sub-3000 Club: The Eight Slowest-Selling Cars

Acura RL - 2037 sales
Acura has tried again and again to renew interest in its large luxury sedan -- a complete redesign for 2005, a refresh in 2009, and some modest tweaks for 2011 -- but it still hasn't caught on with buyers. Part of the issue may be the large overlap between the RL and the much cheaper TL. They're both about the same size, and the TL can be optioned with the same 3.7-liter V-6 that comes standard in the RL, but for significantly less money. It could also be explained by the RL's anonymous styling and convoluted center stack design.

The few buyers who do select the RL enjoy all-wheel drive, the aforementioned 300-horsepower V-6, a 10-speaker Bose sound system, plus leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel as standard. Price tags start at $48,060 and climb to $56,010 with the Advance package.
