Acura RDX Turbo SH-AWD

2010 Acura RDX rdx lover - california 11/01/2011

If you like a sporty ride, this small SUV is for you. The handling is very responsive and tight. There is a learning curve to handling the turbo engine, but once you get used to it, it is very fun to drive and has a lot of spunk. My car has the technology package which is great except for to use all the GPS traffic features, you have to subscribe to the Acura service. I love the hands-free calling and trip info and audio displays. The leather interior is great. This is not your grandmother's SUV. I have found it to be the perfect car for me as a mom of a toddler. My one regret is that the low gas mileage seems to hang around 17-18 mpg for the driving I do to work (mainly on city streets with a short freeway hop).

Great looks & Performance

It's great on gas, has a sleek sophisticated look, it drives well, and has many other great features including being dependable.

Zippy!

2010 Acura RDX Kales - Austin, TX 11/05/2011

This is my second Acura. I had a 2005 Acura TSX before this, and absolutely loved it. Never had a problem with it. The only reason why I was looking to change vehicles is because I needed more utility out of my vehicle because of equipment I have for my photography studio, and a sedan was just too limiting. When my search first began for a small SUV I initially wrote off the RDX (even though I have always had eyes for it). The reason being because like most people in this recession we all want something that is economical and a great value. So at first I was stuck on choosing a vehicle that didn't take premium gasoline, and got excellent gas mileage; the two things the RDX did not meet on my list of must haves. I strongly considered the 2011 Kia Sportage, but the base 4 cylinder engine was whimpy and when I priced out putting in the turbo engine with all of the amenities of the RDX, I couldn't justify paying almost 30k for a Kia (sorry, Kia). The economical part of my mind told me to buy the Honda CR-V or RAV4, but I feel both of those vehicles, although great vehicles, are very bland in styling and in driving dynamics. And once you price them out competitively, for only a couple thousand more you can have an RDX. Beyond price point, my other main concern in looking for a car is reliability and safety. That ruled out anything European (reliability/maintence) or American (reliability/safety). I respect the Lexus RX350 immensely, but I feel I'm too young for that car just yet. I'll wait till I'm 35 and above. In short, even after trying to appease my left brain, my right side won, and I realized at the end of the day if you are going to have a car payment, it better be something you love. And I LOVE this car. It is an absolutely blast to drive. The technology features are awesome (how did I live without a back-up camera?), and the styling/fit and finish is of course excellent. The rims on the 2010 and ^ are stunningly beautiful. And my favorite interior feature of all things in the gigantic locking center console (I can leave my purse in the car with no worries!). My only regret? Not getting the color combo I really wanted (white/tan interior). But, that has nothing to do with Acura or whether you should or should not buy this vehicle. You won't like this car if you don't like a sporty ride. Yes, you can hear the subtle whistle of the turbo, and if silence is your refuge and you like feeling like your driving a boat then buy a Lexus. But for someone who enjoys driving and feeling connected with their car and the road, this will be sure to please. To make a long story short: Fun To Drive, Good-looking, Reliable, Safe, and a great Value for your money.
