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


Just purchased - compared to BMW x3 and Mazda C7. I just garaged my 600 hp track Vette, my Prius produced a distinct adrenaline deficiency. Looked at Subaru WRX, WRX STI for fun factor in winter but too small for family. The Acura is loaded with options, well built (solid), comfortable enough. Make no mistake this mini-SUV is a BLAST to drive. I am surprised they don't market this differently. Turbo 4 banger, SH-AWD Michelin Pilot rubber - snow is good! I can also fit kids, wife, dog, etc. Very happy with performance, technology is overdone - voice recognition nav system rivals BMW iDrive as far as frustration level

Best Features

Performs like nothing else in its class. You can buy BMW x3 with sport package for $12k more - yes $12,000! and BMW is still slower in its responsiveness to changing road conditions. Turbo with paddle shift lets you truly optimize engine/turbo/tranny for a GREAT drive. Best price in class

Worst Features

Voice recognition stinks. As usual, nav system is difficult to use. Sell a sport model with performance rubber, stiffer springs, bigger brakes - although the current model is more fun than any competitor
