2007 Acura RDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

RDX is quick and nimble, acceleration feels like v6, it corners like it's on rails, suspension is nice & stiff, and it has a great turning radius.


Best Features

The turbo charged engine and the super handling all wheel drive is what makes this SUV feel more like a sports sedan.

2007 Acura RDX SUV 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Review

Really, this SUV is just too cool. Buy it with the tech package. Its rival crossovers (I test drove Mazda CX7, BMW X3, Ford Fusion, GMC Arcadia) totally pale in comparison. This SUV is both performance-rich and super techy. Beware! With the sport suspension and handling, it does not drive like an old man's Cadillac. Turbo kicks in real nice. Even the base version is fully loaded - moon roof, leather, etc. For an equivalent version, other luxury brands charge you a fortune. Nobody else offers all these features in one car, and for the price. Overall, it's the best "bang for the buck" in its category. Good job Acura!


Best Features

Backup cameras. Turbo engine and SH- AWD. 5.1 surround sound. And hands down: tech package.


Worst Features

Auto dimming mirrors. "Driver memory". Slightly better fuel mileage.

Review

I drove all the competitors prior to this purchase. This vehicle truly screams "fun to drive". I almost bought an Infiniti FX35 but could not get over the awesome tech package in the RDX at this price. This crossover SUV almost handles as well as my BMW 330xi. It has great acceleration. In fact if you floor it expect to get pinned to your seat. So far the reliability is 100% better than the Grand Cherokee that it replaced. I cannot help myself from accelerating hard in corners and feeling this SUV handle like a sports sedan. Complaints about poor fuel economy and a harsh ride should be put in perspective. This is meant to be a sporty crossover and it totally meets the criteria.


Best Features

Great stereo system. Love being able to plug my iPod into this sound system. Tech package is great. The navigation system is easy to use very effective. The turbo engine coupled with the AW-SHD makes this vehicle perform like a sports sedan and handle like one. Handles great in snow!


Worst Features

Power passenger seat, auto-dimming mirror, XM satellite standard in Canadian version and auto headlights.

Review

I just bought my RDX a week ago and love it thus far. I originally thought I was going to buy an MDX but after driving both, I prefered the way the RDX handled and I do not need the extra room that the MDX has. Mileage is ok, been getting an overall average of 19 mpg, this should improve after a couple thousand miles. I was concerned about going to a 4 cylinder from my 06 TL. This vehicle has plenty pickup and absolutely no turbo lag. The engine is rather quiet too from the inside, as opposed to how noisy it is on the TSX.


Best Features

Tech package is a must! Nav package is great and back-up camera works pretty well. Sound system is great! I recommend getting the auto dimming mirror, rear area rubber tray and the rear bumper appliqué to help prevent scratches from the bumper when loading/unloading.


Worst Features

Auto headlamps, bi-level xenons as opposed to only having low beam xenon with halogen high beam, auto dimming mirror, power passenger seat with lumbar support, ventilated seats (Acura doesn't offer this yet).

Review

After driving a large SUV for the last four years, I am thrilled to be behind the wheel of a new RDX! I am thoroughly enjoying the superb handling as well as all of the amenities that come standard and those that are part of the tech package. For the extra cost, the navigation and voice command functions are easy to grasp and make the entire driving experience even more exciting. As a father who runs many errands with my son, I am pleased with the size of the RDX as it has plenty of interior room and is comfortable for back seat adults as well. Thus far, there is nothing about the RDX that I do not like. Definitely a welcomed change!


Best Features

The handling is outstanding as is the sound system with the tech package. One touch voice commands make changing the climate and XM radio stations easy. All of the features combine to make each trip, no matter the length, exciting. Driving is no longer a chore, it is a pleasure.


Worst Features

Power passenger seat and rear A/C vents.
