RDX exceeding expectations so far
By patentcad on
2007 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
It's impossible to convey the RDX's overall excellence in a brochure or 10 min test drive. After a week I'm THRILLED. More like an AWD TL station wagon. An SUV that out performs many sports sedans and handles like a Porsche 944. Superb passenger comfort. You sacrifice a little in the cargo area dept., but the car is perfectly adequate for our needs. We installed Thule cross bars and attachments to the factory roof rack. Fuel economy? I'm getting 17-18 city, 22-23 hwy and about 20 mpg combined. That will improve once the engine breaks in. On the gas guzzler issue - compare the RDX to real world mpg from other AWD wagons/small SUVs and you'll find it's better than most of them.
Interior design is phenomenal. SH-AWD is just transcendent.
Larger cargo area in the back. Some techno wizardry (user selectable engine programming chip perhaps?) to improve fuel economy.
