Not great for a petite woman!
By sylvanpt on


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


When I test drove the car, it seemed perfect for my height--5'.
It is not. Since buying the car and driving it, I'm having difficulty parking it. I can see over the hood, but something about the front end--length?-- causes me parking problems. Seat height limited--needs another 1-2". Seat belt doesn't lower where attached and cuts me across the throat.
Passenger seat does not go up and down; husband needs a high seat to enter the car due to back problems and now has a difficult time getting in.
Would not have bought the car had I been aware. No push button to lower rear door--have to stand on tip-toe to grasp the handle.
Looks more like a station wagon, not SUV.
Want my RAV 4 back!

Best Features

Colors...metallic silver with taupe interior. Peppy. Key start, not fob.

Worst Features

Consider the petite woman...make seat go a little higher; make seat belt able to go lower; allow passenger seat to move up and down, not just back and forward; provide easy access push button system for lowering rear cargo door; provide better visibility when looking to far left before pulling out into traffic.
