I had been looking for a tall (better line of sight) performance vehicle that has better interior and comfort than the X3. It turns out that the RDX has a much nicer interior and ride. I am very happy with the price and value of this terrific car. I do not notice any turbo lag. I do notice that it accelerates like a jet and handles like a nimble sedan. To quote Burgess Meredith: "It eats lightning and craps thunder!" It is the younger, faster, and more fun brother to my RX 330! The stereo even sounds incredible and has sold me on xm radio!
SH-AWD, plush interior, great acceleration, great stereo, hands free blue tooth, leather, handling around corners is sweet!
Gas mileage is only 13 mpg during first 150 miles. But so fun to drive, who cares?
