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


Very disappointed, poor value for the price. Seats are uncomfortable (I'm 5'10", always hitting my thigh on steering wheel); nav system very complicated; voice recognition never accurate (say "go home" and nav responds with "air conditioner off"). Don't ever turn the car off with the steering wheel in anything but the straight position, if wheels are not straight, you will have problems turning the key in the ignition. Gas mileage is awful; acceleration certainly not 'peppy'; requires premium gas; oil changes require synthetic oil. Bought this car outright (not leased). After 2 months I am considering getting rid of this car and buying something more comfortable with better nav & mileage.

Best Features

Heated seats

Worst Features

Touch screen nav, better acceleration, more comfortable front seats, better gas mileage, more cargo space, cupholder cover that opens to the right not the left, scrap the voice activation, reduce the price to be more inline with what the car really has to offer
