Solid feeling powerful and good driving small SUV. We use regular gas with no issues. Seating is comfortable. Rear view camera and radar cruise are excellant as is emergency braking. Rain drops blurring the view is a small problem with the rear view camera. Blind spot indicators could be more noticeable. Lane keep assist is bad and was much better in the Accord that we also test drove. A $100 GPS is better than this one. The cheap one will give you more info and allow you to change settings while driving. Acura only allows destination changes while parked or with voice which doesn't work if no phone is hooked up to the system. System in "talk" defaults to require phone hookup first. The real comfort issue with this SUV is that the heater fan seems to put out about 1/3 of the volume of air as my Accord. This means that the back seat passengers are considerably colder in winter. I have owned many Hondas and this one Acura. Honda is more responsive to consumers than Acura as we were told by them that we should have noticed this issue on our test drive. I recommend a month long test drive for Acura products.

I think it's an excellent choice for an SUV and a luxury vehicle, I would love to be able to afford one. The drive to turn is immediate the fold down seats you don't have to even fold down push of a button. I test drove several and I mean several and this was bar none the the best on the market for the money.

Great Car for the $$$

If you are in the market for a AWD Luxury SUV this is probably the best bang for your buck. I test drove BMW X-1 and X-3. The X-3 BMW handled better and felt more responsive but came with less standard options and cost about 5K more than the Acura. The X-1 was again a better handling car and felt sportier but was lacking standard equipment and was also much smaller than the RDX. I test drove an Infiniti QX30---Way to small (Felt like I was in a coffin) and a QX50. Qx50 was very dated and the price was about the same as the Acura after wheeling and dealing for about 2 hours. The MPG on the infiniti was a big deal breaker also (20MPG). I am getting about 26 mpg on the highway right now with the RDX. The Acura has 270 HP and it is obvious. I have owned 2 Honda CR-V's and the Acura is basically the reliability of the Honda with the Luxury and power of the Acura. AWD system is Honda too and I have never had any problems in my CR-V's concerning the AWD or reliability. One negitive thing about the Acura compared to the other Luxury SUV's is the styling. I love the front end back the rear is lacking styling that other SUV's have, It's just kinda Blah in the rear. But I am very pleased with Acura and may have become a future Acura only buyer as I was for years with Honda.

I got the fully loaded RDX and all the features are great. Lane departure, blind spot detection, adaptive cruise, etc. Very comfy interior too. Very good sound system. I would recommend this; except for the MILEAGE which isn't great. And it takes high test which is expensive.

I purchased this vehicle with the Advanced Package. It's wonderful. Has great safety features, lovely interior and exterior and rides beautifully. It picks up speed extremely well with little effort when merging on to an expressway yet is ideal for city driving, too. I spent a great deal of time researching a luxury smaller SUV and the Acura RDX was the perfect fit in regard to "bang for the buck."
