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


I love everything about this car except that I have been into the shop with engine troubles about every 2-3 weeks. The engine will suddenly rev uncontrollably and the turbo has stopped working 3 times. This car is downright dangerous to drive without the turbo support to get you moving. The dealer hasn't been able to figure out what is wrong yet -- just keeps erasing the codes which make the problems go away for a short while. Sadly, it's time for a trade-in after only 5 months. So much for Acura quality, which is one of the main reasons I traded in my Saab 9-5 for this.

Best Features

The nav system is superb. The handling is great and the interior is comfortably laid out. I agree with others that they should have included a memory drivers seat & auto-dimming mirror, but I now see that they've done it with the 2008 model.

Worst Features

Quality. I expected a reliable, relatively truouble-free vehicle, so I'm utterly disappointed with my first experience as an Acura owner.
