Performance family car

I had to get a more family friendly vehicle, but I still craved for performance. This will meet your needs if you’re in the same rut, trust me. Very easy to work on. Spark plugs just a bit of extra work needed due to having to remove the inter cooler, just make sure you don’t bend any fins. I’ve had to replace my started since I did buy it used, but it only took me like 1.5 hrs. Very easy low maintenance. When maintenance is needed, it’s always fun!


Over all a great car!

I made the mistake of purchasing from carmax, that's where i went wrong. in the first week the car left me stranded on the side of a major highway. The transmission intercooler line popped off and left the car unable to get into gear. Beyond that incident I have enjoyed this car. I loved the look of it when I bought it. The exterior has aged well, most friends think its a relatively new car. The interior felt and looked nice when I purchased it, 10+ years and 155,000 miles later it has worn. The center console and door panel arm rests were not genuine leather and all three peeled at 100k. They weren't too bad to have replaced. The car actually has incredible cargo room and is reasonably comfortable, I wouldn't want to actually tow around 5 people in this car though. The backseat is a little tight. Other than routine maintenance this car has been great.


A luxury SUV at an affordable price!

This small SUV is perfect if you are looking for the handling of a sports sedan with the cargo room of an SUV. The gas milage leave a little something to be desired but for a turbo 24mpg highway is nothing to sneeze at.


Most reliable car I've owned, great power

This has been a wonderful vehicle. Would make someone a good first car. Runs good, has plenty of power, comfortable, great styling. Would recommend this to family and friends.


Excellent, Reliable Transport - has served us well

RDX is an excellent vehicle, has been extremely reliable and cost efficient. At this point, don't need a SUV so downsizing and this RDX is looking for a new home.


Great car could probably run forever

This car has held up extremely well being very low maintenance and fun to drive. The only real downside about it was the quality of the leather on the center console/arm rests, and gas milage.


Classy Ride. Turbo and Awesome Sound System, WOW!

This is a very sporty SUV. It handles like a sports car and looks like an Acura. You won't lose at the traffic light. From 0 to 60 in no time!


Great car just a gas guzler.

Love my SUV. Wish the trunk space was bigger and it didn't destroy me in gas but overall worth it with two baby's.


Very nice

The interior is very nice, it has a very nice scree, and the speedometer is very modern looking. The interior is big and can fit a good amount of people.


Not what I expected from Acura.

I was greatly disappointed with the car. The performance was not there even with a turbo. The steering was very loose. I owned a 93 Acura Integra and that car performed better. Comfort and style were the best part of the car.
