Unsafe at night or bad weather

Headlight coating behind the headlights deteriorated so the car is unsafe to drive at night. Dealership says it will cost $1,200 per headlight, which I can't afford, apparently this is common but there hasn't been a recall.

Most reliable and comfortable car I have owned!

This vehicle has met all of my needs! Great legroom, comfortable seats, smooth and quiet ride. Great for both road trips and around town. Best vehicle I have ever owned, only upgraded as we have a growing family. From excellent gas mileage, great sound system and all the amenities -- I truly love this vehicle!!

Very Dependable Car

The Acura RDX has been a great SUV. I have always driven a car, but the RDX was a good fit because I needed more storage space, yet a classy looking vehicle. It met the criteria and quality I was looking for.

Very nice vehicle

I really like this vehicle the only problem I have and I'd like to find out if anybody else has this problem is sometimes when I hit the gas there is no gas the pedal goes right to the floor which is dangerous if you're pulling out into a highway. If anybody has this problem please come forward with it thank you

What it should have been

I sort of have to think twice recommending this as a good used car choice. While its a good performing SUV/Crossover, Acura missed creating a category killer. The biggest question I have is what were they thinking when they installed this infotainment/tech system into this vehicle? Dangerously slow with significant lag time when using the controls and the tech package feels first generation including a low res backup cam circa 2002 compared to other cars from the same era. I've heard this from people who own a 2017 model as well. The engine is an absolute jewel. Good performance for the price. The ride can be harsh and noisy. The all wheel drive works well in bad weather and snow. Overall, the tech package interface and performance is this car's biggest drawback making it difficult to do simple things like enertering a destination or taking conference calls while sitting in traffic. You can summon Siri quickly but if you require entering a passcode or hit a # to connect you good luck not getting caught using your phone, there is no tactile buttons and the system locks you out when moving. Why Acura took some short cuts was most likely driven by profit margins.
