My lease had come up on my 05 Infiniti FX35...a beautifully designed and performing vehicle. I looked at the BMW X3, the Infiniti FX35 and the Acura RDX. The obvious question was, what was I going to have to give up to move to a less expensive vehicle. Surprisingly... not much. Negatives on the RDX no automatic headlights strange... almost awkward styling, poor mileage, no compass, very basic rims, rough ride for some, strange cargo cover. Big Positves! Sports car handling and acceleration awesome, AWD system, look at it this way... if money wasn't an object, I'd be deciding between the BMW X6 or the FX50. Saving some money and not giving up the farm feels pretty good.
sporty handling and acceleration.
1.) better rims 2.) incorporate the new Acura front end 3.) include a roof rack 4.) get a plastic mat in the back that covers the complete area 5.) auto head lights 6.) compass
