2007 Acura RDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Acura is a luxury brand, but this is not a worthy model. It's quick and sporty with a stiff ride. But gas mileage was terrible and we had to replace the front brakes and rotors every 5000 miles. We never felt like it did anything well. If you drove it as a sports SUV with paddle shifters, you paid at the pump and in maintenance. Also, missing some key features at this price including automatic headlights, driver memory settings and iPod interface.


Best Features

Paddle shifters and sports-car feel. Super-handling all-wheel drive is great.


Worst Features

Premium gas to eek out 17 miles to the gallon. Also, unacceptable front brakes.

2007 Acura RDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Other than gas mileage, it's a fun car to drive. Notice how I said "car" - it does not drive like a SUV at all. I considered the Honda CRV loaded, but it lacked some-like no useable armrest etc.


Best Features

Nav, radio, AWD.

Review

We bought this car knowing that fuel mileage was not its strong point, but have averaged about 19 mpg (mostly city). My wife loves this vehicle because it is incredibly responsive and handles as well as the BMW we traded in. The seating position is nice and high, but without the huge vehicle to go along with it.


Best Features

Great handling and ride height. Factory stereo is pretty good too.


Worst Features

Bluetooth should have been standard (and now is). The lack of a power passenger seat on all base Acuras is a bit ridiculous given the premium price.

Review

I traded an '05 TSX for the RDX - needed more room for gear. Not only is the RDX just the right size, it's actually MORE fun to drive!! The SH-AWD system produces such grip and control that it almost feels like you're driving a sports car. I've had no problems/repairs, the mileage is acceptable for an SUV (about 21 mpg), and the fun factor is a 10! The ride is firm, but comfortable. The interior is great (and versatile), the technology package is great.


Best Features

SH-AWD, turbo power, surround-sound audio, nav/bluetooth system, moonroof, heated leather seats.


Worst Features

A little better mileage (it's a 4-banger, after all), auto passenger seat, better nav data (it's outdated and finds stores/places 1000 miles away before local ones), a little racier exterior to go with the performance.

Review

Have had the car for almost a year now. Not impressed by Acura’s quality. Dashboard started to rattle after four months of having the car; now is getting worse, both corners rattle at cooler temperature. Even the sunroof rattles during bumpy road. Turbo lag is definitely noticeable at low RPM with A/C on. I have to put the gear in the Sport mode to minimize the turbo lag when traffic is in a stop-and-go condition; this seems to help. Ride is a little stiff (comments given by everyone who had ridden in my car). Poor gas mileage. I am getting averaged 18 MPG with roughly 60% hwy and 40% surface street driving. Okay, with all the negatives mentioned, I must say the car is a fun car to drive.


Best Features

Love the GPS with real-time traffic. Backup camera is so helpful. Tilting right side mirror when backing up. Comfortable interior. Exterior look is beautiful.


Worst Features

Offer a true V6, softer ride, could use a good design to eliminate any potential rattling; especially in the dashboard area where this is the most annoying. Auto dimming rear view mirror should come standard.
