Want a sport sedan needed an suv

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


I chose the RDX because I wanted sport sedan like handling and power but the utility of an SUV. Gas mileage is not as bad as some say. If I ease into the throttle, I can get about 25mpg highway with some city driving. Ride is firm, but you get lots of grip. Sport mode tranny is neat but not necessary. This is my first turbo engine and overall I like the power surge; surprising that a 2.3L can feel this strong in a 3,900lb vehicle. Turbo lag is not bad; spools up faster than the 2008 CX7 and 2009 Subaru Forester I drove. RDX felt more powerful than CX7 despite having less advertised hp and one fewer gear. Glad I spent the extra money and chose the RDX over the CX7.

Best Features

comfortable seats, torque, handling of the sh-awd

Worst Features

Brakes are not up to par, some fading towards the end of the stop. CX7 has better brakes. Bore out the motor to 2.5L and increase the boost to 15psi.
