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


This is my fourth Acura. The last being an MDX. While I realize this is an "entry level" SUV the quality and luxury of Acura has been scaled down on this vehicle. When my Lexus RX350 lease ended I didn't want to get the same car twice and the MDX has gotten to big with no more kids or large dog to haul around. There some features left off of this Acura which should be standard issue i.e. automatic headlights and power rear door, rain sensing wipers. The gas mileage is ridiculous. We celebrate when I can hold the average at 19 mpg for more than 10 minutes and that is with freeway driving. I will not purchase another RDX.

Best Features

iPod adapter, large storage compartment between front seats holds laptop and handbag, responsive acceleration.

Worst Features

Power rear door, rain sensing wipers, automatic headlights, touch screen navigation, telephone, audio & climate control. More cup holders & storage throughout. Back seats that fold down without having to move the seat cushions out of the way. Retractable cover over back storage instead of flat board
