2011 RDX FWD Base w/Roof Rack
By drr98 on


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


With Roof Rack (Installed - $667MSRP)

$30,500 - sales price

$33705.31 - w/tax, reg, lic, transfer, titling, Ca tire, doc prep & dmv e filing fees...

Worked with the two Internet guys at Niello Acura in Sacramento. Both of these men made it so easy. Emailed what I wanted. Got a quote back. A few back and forths, a test drive and only 1 hour of office time.

Found setting the c/c and varying gears (3,4,5,4,3...) using s mode is a great way to allow you to varying rpm (for proper break-in) while keeping the same speed while crusing the hiway.

We are very happy with the RDX and the great price we got.

Can't really review the Reliability when its not even broken in.

Best Features

Blue Tooth, Paddle shifters in Sport mode, little body movement/roll cornering, comfy & grippy seats, fairly luxo

Worst Features

Acura Why? 1 - The hand brake has gone missing. What is that thing hitting my left foot when I'm streching my toes? Put it back where it belongs, next to the shifter. (Kind of a big thing) 2 - Hood prop rod vs gas struts. (minor) 3 - Console cover - MDX style uses 2 half lids that open in the center, RDX - 1 full size lid, opening toward the driver, hinge on pass side. When pass goes to hook up the ipod, can't see over the lid without leaning into the drivers space(med) 4 - Steering column won't extend out far enough for me (6'2") to be ergo perfect(minor) 5 - Rubber Shifter cover vs Leather(med) 6 - Back windows don't go completly down(minor) 7 - Needs Auto hatch lift(med)
