Whatever the other reviewer discovered about his transmission may have been an anomaly. I have driven this car over 12 months, albeit sparingly due to disability. However the one thing that impressed me was the smooth powerful shifts in the mid-range. The car takes off like a rocket between 35 and 75. The 9 forward gears make certain the sweet spot remains in effect throughout this power curve. On another issue, the car can drive itself given well defined lines, such as on well manicured interstates. By drive I mean no hands on the steering wheel. What I don't mean is it reads traffic posted speeds like a Tesla. It does have cross traffic warnings, such as when you back out of a parking spot with two huge vans on either side of you.
I am so happy with my RDX!! It rides like a dream- quiet and smooth, plenty of power. It is the perfect size- big enough to hold plenty of cargo, small enough to park easily! The back seat is comfortable and roomy. It takes a while to figure out all of the electronics/features. Voice control is clunky. Overall, I can't say enough about how great the car is.
Would buy this car all over again! I love it!

It's not a flashy, look-at-me type of vehicle. It is stylish. It is luxurious. It is well-made. It does not flaunt or call for unsavory attention . I don't feel that I'm attracting attention to myself and putting myself in a situation where I might be robbed or followed home. It is unpretentious.
