THE RDX IS A FINE AUTO AFTER MANY YEARS OF DRIVING SEDANS AND STATION WAGONS. IF THERE IS A SHORTCOMING , IT RELATES TO THE RIDE. THE RDX HAS A HARD RIDE COMPARED TO A GRAND MARQUIS. I GUESS IT HAS TO DO WITH SUV FRAME. ALSO, THE CARGO SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. IN TRAVELING, MY LUGGAGE SHOWS AS WELL AS PURCHASES ON SHOPPING DAYS. ALSO, WHEN HEAVY SNOW HIT CHICAGO RECENTLY, THE WIPERS ICED UP AND THE FRONT DEFROSTERS COULD NOT HANDLE THE SITUATION.
Acuras are reliable, comfortable and handle well in weather conditions, especially snow.
The Quality is Apparent
2009 Acura RDX - DC metro area10/15/2012
This is a well-built vehicle. I traded a 2006 MB M-Class for the RDX after the Benz left me stranded one too many times. They are both luxury SUVs but that is where the similarities end. The RDX is much more nimble - the suspension is stiffer and the ride not as "plush". Not a detractor, just different - it's still a very comfortable ride. My RDX came with the technology package that included the back seat DVD player that I'll never use but the sound system is worth the ticket price - incredible clarity even at lower volumes. All the other bells and whistles are there...nav system is very intuitive with a great display, controls are all well-placed. Everything has a very solid feel. Back seat leg room is impressive for such a short wheelbase without sacrificing behind-the-seats cargo space (it's plenty for me anyway). The only snivel I have is the in-town gas mileage. That little four banger won't get you moving in traffic without the turbo kicking in. When that happens, the mileage meter drops to around five mpg. Most of my driving is in town and I'm getting around 16 mpg. Not horrible but I was expecting better. I've yet to take it on a road trip but I predict the mileage to be great once you get it up to cruising speeds and put the turbo to bed. One more observation about the turbo - if you're not thinking about the gas mileage, it's a lot of fun to drive! I traded for the RDX for reliability - it's an Acura, 'nuf said. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with my selection.
