I just bought it. So far, I love it!

I just bought the car one day ago. So I can't really tell you about reliability over time. I will say this: this car is the beautifully styled, very classy. It provides comfort like no car that I owned before. It's almost like floating. I have get used to all the bells and whistles. There's a lot of them. I'm happy with my purchase.

5.0

One of the most reliable cars we have owned.

We had a 2013 RDX and we super pleased with it, so we definitely planned to buy another RDX. The 2018 RDX meets all our expectations.
