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


Review

I have been in the car business 18 years, and have had a few front drive cars and 4 rear drive pathfinders. One day I was driving a front drive passenger vehicle and took a corner to fast and the rest is history. That day I test drove the 07 RDX SW AWD and the rest is history. I have never owned an all wheel drive vehicle with VSA. Being in the business, I have driven this vrossover hard. It corners better than any thing I have ever driven. Bring on the rain. Floor it from a dead stop and the car just launches forward, comfortable on long trips, the navigation is great.


Best Features

The super handling awd grid, paddle shifters, and how effortless everything works. The rear stadium seating is great.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, but not much. The benefits of this car far out way the cost of gas. Just stay out of the turbo.

Review

Test drove Mercedes, Lexus, BMW, Range Rover and found the RDX beat them all. Performance, quality and driveability all exceeded my demands. Gas mileage has been an avg of 20 mpg. I spend 3-5 hours a days behind the wheel and this is an awesome ride. Just love it.


Best Features

SH-AWD, turbo, stereo, seats, storage.


Worst Features

Power passenger seat.

Review

This car has been so fun to drive. Lots of reviews about the stiff ride, but that is one of the things I like about the car. Leather is very nice. Lots of fun gadgets, and voice command works very well. This car offers more for the money than any of its competitors, especially the overpriced BMW X3. If you have a family with a bunch of kids, get the GMC Acadia or Mazda CX-9 in this price-range. But for the young professional looking for an entry-level luxury SUV, this is the bomb. Even if I was willing to pay more for a car, I would still end up with the RDX, that's how much I've loved it. My wife drives a new audi, and has been jealous since I bought this.


Best Features

Acceleration, handling, great stereo, lots of buttons, AWD, 1/4" input for iPod, volume controls on left side of steering wheel, sport suspension, dash layout very high-tech, back up camera, large middle storage bin, braking, lots of custom computer set-up options, bluetooth very clear.


Worst Features

Gas mileage (of course). Brighter GPS screen for sunny days. Bluetooth button feels cheap and doesn't always register when pushed. A little less "goofy" external styling - could look a little "tougher". Tire pressure notice too sensitive when cold outside.

Review

Acura is a luxury brand, but this is not a worthy model. It's quick and sporty with a stiff ride. But gas mileage was terrible and we had to replace the front brakes and rotors every 5000 miles. We never felt like it did anything well. If you drove it as a sports SUV with paddle shifters, you paid at the pump and in maintenance. Also, missing some key features at this price including automatic headlights, driver memory settings and iPod interface.


Best Features

Paddle shifters and sports-car feel. Super-handling all-wheel drive is great.


Worst Features

Premium gas to eek out 17 miles to the gallon. Also, unacceptable front brakes.

Review

Other than gas mileage, it's a fun car to drive. Notice how I said "car" - it does not drive like a SUV at all. I considered the Honda CRV loaded, but it lacked some-like no useable armrest etc.


Best Features

Nav, radio, AWD.
