2011 Acura RDX SH-AWD 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 5A)


So far, so good! Moved up from CR-V. The Acura has been fabulous to drive, very quiet and smooth. Interior is much more practical than CR-V and easier to adjust various things, and the engine/pick-up goes w/o saying. Exterior seems nice, get lots of compliments. Looked at Q5 and X3, for the money I think I got the best deal. Only complaint is the gas mileage. Yes, it is turbo charged, but a combined mpg around 23 would be more reasonable for a 4cy. On 5 tanks I get b/w 18-25mpg with 60% highway/40% city driving and not engaing the turbo charger as hard/often. Most weeks are lower end of range 18-20mpg. OEM tires seem OK so far, won't know for sure until Winter hits.

Best Features

Turbo charged engine - pick up and handling is perfect on highway and great in regular traffic. Smooth ride, convenient features in cabin/dash.

Worst Features

Increase in MPG, illuminated blinker and light components - currently they are black with white paint - does not light up/hard to see in dark.
