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


My wife got the car and she seems happy with it, but I think the lack of visibility out the back is dangerous. The rear window is very small and then further blocked by the driver's headrest. Visibility out the driver's side is also bad because of the frame between driver and passenger windows. The real problem is the delay in acceleration which is maddening. Delay is usually 1 second but if you really need to pull in front of a car to make an exit you need to know it may the sequence which is engine revs, wait a second, wait a second, and then car accelerates, but not quickly. I can't believe this is supposed to be a premium car. Also high hood blocks forward view a little.

Best Features

Interior is nice and seats are very comfortable.

Worst Features

Bigger rear window, lower hood, bigger engine. Bigger engine to eliminate amazingly long turbo lag.
