2009 Acura RDX 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


I’ve been on just about every type of terrain and this SUV has performed admirably. Highway and street ride and performance is great. Pickup is a little slow under 20 MPH but really winds up once the turbocharger is engaged. On the highway with the cruise set you can get 22-24 MPG at 75-80 MPG. Great pickup at high speeds for highway passing. In the city MPG is closer to 18. On the beach the all-wheel drive helps out and takes bumps and loose sand very well. Dirt roads are the same. I have not taken it on much worse than maintained dirt roads because of the somewhat low clearance and I bought it mostly as a highway vehicle. Almost every feature you need is included.

Best Features

One touch windows, audio quality, heated seats (not that I really need it), power driver seat, auxiliary audio input, huge center console, fitted rear cargo cover, turbo, xenon lights. Excellent/ though somewhat stiff ride on all terrains.

Worst Features

Dusk-sensing head lights, better radio antenna (speakers are so good it picks up extra static, especially in rural areas), power passenger seat, sliding rear seat, one touch rear windows, cigarette lighter charger on when car is off, air conditioned seats (Lexus has it and it works great here in tx)
