I love the way the RDX drives and feels. I just bought one with 13K miles on it and it looks brand new. The interior feels nice and not cheap. The seats are perfect for long drives and the heated seats are a must have. It has very capable horsepower when you need it. I love the 6 cyl. engine and the handling is amazing. It can turn on a dime and the steering is effortless.
My only complaint is the infotainment system. I feel like Acura could have put a better stereo system and a touch screen infotainment system in the car. I didn't get the Tech Package because I didn't like the navigation. It was not user friendly and wasn't a touch screen display. I feel like the price for the Tech Package wasn't worth it. Hopefully Acura will address this on their RDX models in the future.
Overall, I feel like I paid a great price for a luxury SUV that performs better than the competition. The interior and exterior is good quality and looks beautiful. Most of my friends that have BMWs were very impressed with my RDX. I hope it last me many years.
Roomy airy cabin, quiet, comfortable seats, quick and plenty of room for all my hobby and sports. Five thousand dollars less expensive then it's similarly equipped rivals. Throw in reliability and what else can you ask for!?
As a Senior with an old 2004 Honda Civic HYBRID with 130000 miles, I’m as pleased as I was when I bought it new. The hybrid battery was replaced just before the warranty was up. Concord Honda has a complete record of this car. As long as the left arthritis knee holds down the clutch on the stick shift I can zip around with great mileage.
2017 Acura RDX Review
Great reliable vehicle. Fun and lively V6!

After driving the RDX for 3 years, it’s got a fun and lively engine and plenty of space compared to similar vehicles in the market. Used this vehicle for daily commute and transporting family.
Although we didn't purchase from Mercedes-Benz of Walnut Creek, the experience working with Nick Coddington was extremely pleasant. He took the time to determine our needs and budget and spent as much time as we needed to identify the car we wanted.
I'd recommend them highly if you are in the market for a new or used vehicle.
2017 Acura RDX Technology Package Review
great performance very durable great mpg

feel very safe in it. was involved in a minor accident and minimal damage . very comfortable especially when sitting in traffic for long periods of time.
I pretty much like the Honda stuff and this vehicle is no exception. The problems that I have with the RDX are relatively minor. The fit between the front bumper and front fenders are terrible as well as the fit between the hood and the top of the fenders, uneven gaps and problems lining up. If you have the front widows rolled partially down, they rattle when closing the doors. Very unhappy with the NAV system. It never responds to voice commands and is very quirky as well as the maps are very antiquated looking. A bit tight inside the cabin as well as very little storage space and the fuel door release control is so far down at the floor that anyone with a bad back will have a problem activating it. But on the positive side, it runs and shifts smoothly with only an occassional hiccup in the transmission when it appears to get confused. For whatever reason Honda just refuses to fully engage and commit to the Luxury car market with Acura. They are nice cars but I don't consider them much different that a less expensive Honda. For the money that they ask for these Acura's, better cars can be had.
I test drove several SUVs before deciding on the Acura RDX. It has comfortable seats that accommodate my 6'2" husband and me who's 5'3". Great backup camera & driver assist features. I was pleasantly surprised by the affordability, plus I get great gas mileage even though it's a 6 cylinder. I have no regrets in choosing this vehicle. It will be my next vehicle choice as well.
Car shopping is my least favorite thing to do!!! Andy Johnson at Contra Costa County Public Auto Auction made the experience and process very easy!!
We appreciated her excellent knowledge expertise and service skills!
2014 Acura RDX Technology Review
Smoothest riding car I ever owned
by petunia from Mesa,Az

My Acura RDX is very smooth riding, fuel efficient, easy handling, and fun to drive. I had no major problems with it and would highly recommend the RDX to family and friends!
LOVE THIS suv but just like everything there are a few things I have issues with.
1) in the winter the bottom of the doors between the door & body of the suv ice , snow & red grit gets in there , will make a mess on your pant leg.
2) the head lights are very bright & during very heavy snow it can be hard to see the rd. It's like driving in fog with your brights on!
I took my car in for what I thought was going to be a simple service + detailing (to remove some paint/external scratches). I also mentioned some shimmying at highway speeds when light braking. Turns out that I needed some serious front brake work. Also, it was time for timing belt replacements. Although my final bill was much higher than originally expected, my service rep (DeeAnn) kept with me every step of the way to ok proposed work. She also helped to meet my pickup timing next morning (when fixes required me to leave car overnight); they apparently would have provided a rental, but I didn't choose that route. DeeAnn even expanded detailing to cover interior of car as a perk for the expense of service. Car looks almost like new (couldn't get all scratches out without body work) and brakes very smoothly.

This vehicle is incredible, we looked at quite a bit and it has everything that we asked for and then some. Great looking as well.
Nice car to drive. Comfortable and economical.
I always liked Acura cars. Very spaciously designed. Audio can be improved. Comfortable seats and large cargo space. Like to see the center console as TLX.
