You will love the Turbo on this RDX!

I love this car, especially the turbo charged engine. Also its AWD wet/snow traction is something unbelievable! It as given me NO TROUBLE in all the years I have owned oit and looks and drives like it did when it was new!


New to us great car

A great SUV that's easy to park and drive nice leather roomie gas mileage is spotty good reviews and built to last after all its still a honda


Very reliable car. Low maintenance

This is a low maintenance car with relatively low Gas usage for a SUV. I'm the first owner of the car and I was very happy with this car.


Epic! Executive Style with a sport attitude.

The Turbo on the V-Tech engine puts the fun in driving. Compared to the TSX Wagon, (which was all work and no play); this has the go time off the line, and most importantly kick that will get you off the ramp and into the flow of traffic quickly. Great comfort in leg room, and riding with some of my Footballin' Friends that admire the legroom within the passenger cabin. Now we can Hit the Road in style , and every adventure will begin with a smile.


Most beautiful car I?ve ever had!!!

What a beautiful car! This car is substantial, sturdy and reliable. I love that it retains it?s value, even after 6 years. I feel protected and safe while driving, and have a great view of traffic. Love those Acura headlights that light up the side of the road at night!


tough and sexy.



Good Luxury Car

I've loved this car. It's a little expensive for my needs, but overall it's been very reliable with minimal performance issues by 60,000 miles. Since the parts are Honda, it's affordable to replace parts if needed. It has a sporty suspension, so it takes a while to get used to the bounciness of the car if you're on bumpy roads (like the Midwest). Gas mileage is decent for what it is, and the turbo is a nice added touch - it's got plenty of up and go! I've had a few issues with the Bluetooth connecting to my devices, but I would assume that's due to the technology being newer at the time this car was released. The Bluetooth phone itself is a little frustrating, but again, I'm sure there were still plenty of kinks to be figured out between 2012 and now. Easy enough to upgrade after-market. Very roomy trunk, and the seats fold down (not all the way down). Moved the pieces for two IKEA dressers comfortably :) Overall, if this fits your budget, it's a great car. I'd recommend it.


Never owned such a nice car in my life.Bought used

Was an impulse used car buy at the dealer.Got a good deal on my old Honda CRV.I love this car,it's classy and has xxxxx.The MPG isn't bad-don't like the fact it burns premium. I sit in it and can't believe I own such a nice car.


Love my RDX

This is the perfect car for my son and me. I traded in my Mercedes ML320 because the maintenance costs were too high. I wanted a car with more "luxury" but also greater value, and I wanted it to be cheaper to maintain. I found that in the Acura RDX. Even though this is a 4 cylinder front-wheel drive car, it has great pick up and a good steering radius. The interior is truly well designed with everything my son and I want on a car. Everything. We still get in the car and are absolutely delighted with it. Nothing has broken or been flawed in any way. I am so glad I went this route.


decent car for pricetag

love the car and drive is excellent - disadvantage is: bad mpg....compared to other SUVs but when I count price of the car vs. extra gallons for 6 years period of time...I inclined to this car....
