2008 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD w/Technology Package (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I've had the RDX for about three months and have been very pleased. I drove a Honda Pilot for 5 years and it did a great job of hauling kids, but driving it was kind of like driving a boat. Not so with the RDX. This little SUV handles better than my wife's TL but offers a lot more flexibility. I'm getting about 20 mpg in mixed driving, which is about what I expected. I could probably get better mileage if I kept the little red turbo needle pointing down more often, but where's the fun in that! So far, a really nice car.

Best Features

Power, handling, nav. and sound system

Worst Features

Without any reference points, the rear view camera doesn't help much. The suspension can be a little too firm at times. The lower door panels look cheap, especially when compared to the rest of the cabin.
