Traded in my 2003 Highlander for an RDX on 4/18/08 and wish I had done it sooner. I put over 800 miles on during the first week and I couldn't be happier. The turbo is awesome and the technology package is great. Mileage is slightly better than the 17/22 on the sticker. I was looking to downsize a bit and just couldn't bring myself to purchase a sedan. What a great choice. This baby drives like a sports car and still gives me some options on the utility side of things.
Now that I have had a chance to read the book and learned how to communicate with the car, I just love the voice recognition and bluetooth. The navi system is very good but I still like my Garmin better (my wife has it now). There is just a lot to like in this vehicle.
If they could improve the MPG this just might be the greatest value in the world. There are probably a few comfort items I would tweak, but overall I am really pleased
