Saved my life

by mollyrae911 from Salt Lake City Ut | November 19, 2012

I bought a 2012 Acura RDX and was involved in a car accident. I was stationary and was hit by a pick-up truck who was going 70 mph. My midsize SUV looked like a smart car, my RDX saved my life. Loved my car, looking for another. Safest car out their, reliable, good looking, and SO comfortable. I have had a honda accord, subaru legacy, Nissan X'terra and a Mini cooper. My RDX was hands down the best car out of all of them.

Nice package - Best offer for money

by iRikal from Montreal, Canada | October 5, 2010

I bought this RDX 2010 in June it is now October. At first i was looking into the Mercedes GLK350 and didn't think about trying the RDX. I thought the GLK was IT. Coming from a Honda produt before and not wanting to go to the CRV, i wonderedif Acura had something in the range. I was not disapointed after my 1st ride. This is my 15th car... been around the block a few times so, i was looking into something sporty and performant but didn't want to go and pay an outragous price. The RDX was the best package out there. The standard trim was already more loaded than any other from any of the competition and it had the advantage of running a smaller block with turbo. This engine is a lot of fun. Sleepy and quiet when you are stuck in stop & go traffic but a screamer when the road opens up before you. But the RDX best feature is the SH-AWD. You never felt anything like this, trust me, when you are exiting a freeway and press the throttle to give more power. SH-AWD pushes the outside rear wheel into full power and it makes you stick to the road. Unbeliveable! Amenities in the cockpit are well furnished. There is a lot of plastics (for the wood lovers) but if like me find that wood on a dash looks out of place, the metallized accents look very appealing. I'll keep the wood on my furniture. The only cons i find about this vehicle are: ¿ Consumption: This drinks premium and more than what i was used to. Then again, i was driving a small compact car and this has a lot more space & features (and is AWD) ¿Road Noise: For an up-scale CUV, i was expecting something more quiet. It is a little noisy and Acura has been criticized for being thin on the floor insulation. ¿Stiff Ride: It feels more like a sport car than a CUV. Then again, you want the handling, you will have stiff suspention. This CUV is definitely an excellent competition to the rest out there. Try one, you'll see. As for the looks... i'm on the 'I really like the can opener front' crowd...

2010 RDX AWD W/O Tech Pkg

by Auto Aficionado from Central New Jersey | February 22, 2010

This is our second RDX AWD and it is a vast improvement over the 2007. Along with the refreshed exterior, the driver seat now has two memory positions, the front passenger seat is power and not manual, there is a USB hookup for an IPOD, Bluetooth is standard, heated side mirrors, auto dimming rear view mirror, back-up camera, more comfortable seats, and a quieter turbocharger and more responsive brakes. We also find the handling to be FAR better...and the acceleration much smoother. I haven't found any info on a change in anything that would account for the improved handling...but there is a pronounced difference. The RDX has now joined the ranks of luxury vehicles...as opposed to a wannabe. In addition, it is absolutely the best bang for the buck in its category, as Acura does not nickel and dime you for every feature (including those that can be found on economy cars)...as does BMW and AUDI...and to some extent Infiniti as well. Another point...the backup camera image is in the left side of the rear view mirror, which IMO is more convenient than in the large center screen as is the case with the tech package. Beware the Bluetooth functions can be limited depending on the compatibility of your phone. In addition, they are more extensive with the tech package. However, without tech, the basics are there to make and take calls handsfree. That said, I'm still not clear why Acura doesn't just use a six cylinder as the turbo 4 does not conserve on gas. It would save the cost of the synthetic oil. However, there is no turbo lag, and it really does fly. Last but not least, I would love to see an exterior change that makes it less truck-like..then it would be the perfect luxury CUV in its class.
