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


This SUV has it all. All-wheel drive and a turbo and all the technology features you need (including a free 3-months subscription to XM-Radio and a back-up camera) in a true luxury package. This car re-defines obsessive-compulsive traits up towards the maximum in terms of vehicle mechanical design and attention to interior fit and finish. On the road the vehicle is quiet, powerful and handles like a sports car on tight turns. The turbo has no noticeable lag and makes highway merging a breeze. Once at cruising speed, the electronics enable you to easily check on all important vehicle functions without taking you hands off the steering wheel or your eyes off the road.

Best Features

The paddle shifters add to the feeling of control over the driving experience, especially the ability to down-shift and use engine-braking on steep hills and on slippery surfaces. The heated front seats are great on cold winter days and the dual climate control is perfect.

Worst Features

Gas mileage is low-average and the vehicle range on a full tank is about 250-300 miles: not-so-hot. Also not-so-hot is the need to use expensive premium gas.
