I got my RDX tech for around 32k + taxes. I think for the price, the feature content is great. I don't know why people think it rides harsh, I think the ride/handling balance is just right, sporty and confidence inspiring without being too harsh or floaty. The worst thing about this car is the omission of a couple cheap-but-nice features, and the fuel economy, which could have been better if they put the V6 under the hood. It's got more than enough power to deal with traffic.
