This car has been so fun to drive. Lots of reviews about the stiff ride, but that is one of the things I like about the car. Leather is very nice. Lots of fun gadgets, and voice command works very well. This car offers more for the money than any of its competitors, especially the overpriced BMW X3. If you have a family with a bunch of kids, get the GMC Acadia or Mazda CX-9 in this price-range. But for the young professional looking for an entry-level luxury SUV, this is the bomb. Even if I was willing to pay more for a car, I would still end up with the RDX, that's how much I've loved it. My wife drives a new audi, and has been jealous since I bought this.
Acceleration, handling, great stereo, lots of buttons, AWD, 1/4" input for iPod, volume controls on left side of steering wheel, sport suspension, dash layout very high-tech, back up camera, large middle storage bin, braking, lots of custom computer set-up options, bluetooth very clear.
Gas mileage (of course). Brighter GPS screen for sunny days. Bluetooth button feels cheap and doesn't always register when pushed. A little less "goofy" external styling - could look a little "tougher". Tire pressure notice too sensitive when cold outside.
