I own a 2007 black on beige RDX. I purchased it because everyone I know owns a Lexus RX, which I am not fond of, and because it undercuts the competitions price by a noticeable amount. Overall, I generally like the vehicle, but I am convinced that it is not for everyone. For instance: Few appreciate that the rough ride of the RDX is from a wonderful suspension that makes this car feel very agile in its moves. Many see this as just a rough uncomfortable car. Also, the interior doesn't have the typical wood trimmed interior. Instead, it has a more contemporary intricate looking plastic trim. Many see this as a lack of luxury, when it is just more modern than the typical wood trim.
As far as driving goes, it is great. The RDX is quick off the line and while passing traffic on the expressway. However, the fuel economy is lousy. 16 in the city is typical, and it doesn't get past 22 on the highway. I just drove with my family to Florida from Chicago in the RDX and it didn't pass 21.7 the entire time we drove. While driving back from Florida, some road debris popped both right side tires. Acura roadside assistance was great, they helped us with every step of the problem, and soon, the Acura dealer in Macon, Georgia had us back on the road with new tires.
My only complaint about this car is the lack of a premium feel in the interior, fuel economy, and the rear end styling. Other than that, its a great car.
