Surprising disappointment from Acura
By Acuralover on
Vehicle2007 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)
ReviewI've owned 5 Honda and Acura products before, and this is a HUGE disappointment!! The 4-banger feels sluggish from a standstill (although it's reasonably quick after the initial lag). The engine is very noisy during acceleration, with a lot of turbo whine (even under some cruising conditions) which "wears down on you" after a while. And I was SHOCKED by the horrendous fuel economy. At 16 mpg overall (mix of hwy/city), it's exactly the same as my other vehicle: V8 powered Lexus GX470! Isn't this supposed to be a 4 CYLINDER, SMALL SUV? Helllooo!!
Best FeaturesFabulous interior and technology features. Best Nav system PERIOD, stunningly good sound system... and that's it.
Worst FeaturesHorrendous fuel economy for such a small SUV needs to be drastically improved. Ditch the horrendous 4-banger and it will likely improve power and economy. 4-banger simply not suited for this 4000 lb AWD SUV application!
