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


I drove the RDX 2x before deciding to buy and I sincerely regret it. There are just too many quirks in design that make this vehicle really annoying. The gas mileage has not improved with time, only getting 13 mpg. The audio constantly dimming ANYTIME you hit another button on the dash. The drive is similar to a BMW which is fine. The fact that you cannot import an address book with the handsfree is just stupid. Other Acura models have this feature, except RDX. For a few thousand dollars more get a BMW. Yes they nickel and dime you to death on options, but they make a great driving machine. Acura, in my book, has a long way to go.

Best Features

Backup camera.

Worst Features

The cup holder cover should open to the right, allowing the driver to not have to lift over the cover. The audio dimming when hitting any other buttons is annoying. The Zagat guide lists only 1 restaurant for all of SD. Bluetooth does not import address book. No automatic lights.
