The BIGGEST MISTAKE of my life!!
By Justin N. on


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


Where do I start? Sure this vehicle is "fun to drive" and handles like a dream, and the interior is full of nifty features, like bluetooth, the Nav system and the phenomenal sound system. But that's about it!! Everything else about this vehicle is simply the worst. The turbo-4 is VERY NOISY when accelerating, and a good amount of ROAD NOISE enters the cabin. Very tiring on long highway drives!! FUEL ECONOMY is HORRENDOUS (about 15city/20hwy)- A huge disappointment for such a small 4-cylinder SUV!! (and for the most part I don't even drive very aggressively). I wish I could just return it and get something else!!

Best Features

SH-AWD, Elliot Scheiner Sound system, Nav system, Bluetooth, Backup camera

Worst Features

Dump the turbo-4 and get a proper V6 for cryin' out loud. Should have more sound insulation for a luxury vehicle. Improve the HORRENDOUS fuel economy (V6 would probably solve this issue).
