2008 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


Worked as a vehicle test engineer for an European car company when I fell in love with the SH-AWD system on the RL. Got the RDX based in July of 2007. Handling is light and responsive for a car with this huge mass. Turning corners is a dream with the SH-AWD: it ate corners while driving down I-80 near Lake Tahoe, CA. Turbo lag is small compared to other turbo cars but you can hear them. Durability has been excellent. People all comment how pricey this car looks and become surprised at the price. Very comfortable seats. Love the relatively large width of the vehicle. Rear seat space is very large for people of two, even three. Lament that I did not get the nav system.

Best Features

SH-AWD: a dream to have.

Worst Features

Improve fuel economy: add hybrid or something. Add more hi-tech options such as AFS, keyless entry, panorama sunroof, LED type rear combination lamps. Exterior design is unique but unimpressive interior design. Fold key is laughable: too chubby and heavy. With these, 2nd gen would be a hit.
