2006 Acura TSXdee parker - peachtree city, GA12/15/2015
I owned my Lumina for 25 years and this is my first "new to me" car buy since then..I did not want to buy anything but when a deer decided to take out my baby, I had to go car shopping..I looked at many cars..different makes, models, and years..after getting back into having to buy a car mode..I found that this car offered a lot of car for the money. It offers features other younger cars did not..I liked the features and, though, I am admittedly a muscle car kinda of girl, I am warming up to the things the TSX has to offer. Still working out the fact that I can set off the alarm just by starting the car..but I'm sure some techie will be able to educate me in the near future so folks stop thinking I'm stealing my own car...
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.
