2014 Acura RDX Technology Package 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


I recently purchased a 2014 RDX with the Technology package. The Build quality and power are very good. - is the steering wheel extra small? I am extremely disappointed with the technology of the vehicle - even after purchasing the technology package. Big rip off. the GPS is the same hard to use out dated GPS they have been installing since 2004. Hello Acura!! Has anyone there ever used an iPhone?!. You can't use the steering wheel controls to activate Siri. You can upload your songs to the hard drive but it's just a big list of music files - you really can't select songs or artist. Very disappointing.

Favorite Features

quite ride. keyless ignition. Fold in mirrors - oh yeah they don't offer those.

Suggested Improvements

iPhone integration!!! Or at least modernize your GPS! I don't want to go into the 7 levels of voice command hell just to get directions. Honda, Acura, get with the times!!. If I hook up my bluetooth phone, I want to be able to fully control it using the hands free steering wheel controls. I can by a $99 media player for my car and get that. If I want to call someone in my address book, just use my phones address book they way I always do. Don't force me into your strange and outdated voice command system. I wouldn't suggest anyone waste their $$ on the technology package. the only thing you get are cool front lights. Flip down read head rests. separate rear window open on liftgate
