2014 RDX - Comfortable but a vibration issue ruins the fun
By familyguy1 on


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


Purchased in late Dec 2013 and after 3 months and 3,000 miles, here's my review: Ride is comfortable, agility is great, suspension is fairly stiff. Seats are supportive and comfortable (both front and rear). Sound system is great. BUT... The car has a vibration issue from about 60 MPH on up. Had the tires spin balanced, road force balanced, the prop shaft replaced... still there. The vibration is not severe, but it's ever present and on long trips, leaves your feet tingling a bit and ready to get out. Very annoying. Rode with the dealer service tech, he feels it too, but says that's as good as it gets. Because of the vibration, feels like I made a $38,000 mistake.

Suggested Improvements

1) Eliminate the vibration issue(s) from 60 MPH on up. Very annoying. 2) Navigation system is a very outdated design. Feels like something from the late 90's.

I bought my RDX in July, 2013. Significant driveline vibration issues emerged within 2500Kms. Discovered through Acura owners web site that a number of others have this problem. The loaner I had one day had it. Solved by Honda through a service bulletin which required new driveshaft. Seems to be an issue, perhaps resolved by now?
