Basque Red Base

2013 Acura RDX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Very pleased to find this much power with good gas mileage.
Quality is excellent and the car looks great - I especially like the basque red.
The cylinder deactivation system is flawless - you can only tell when it is in use by watching the digital bar graph for mileage jump from 20 to 30+.
Initial impressions on gas mileage are 19-20 in pure city and 27-28 for all highway.
May get a bit better with more miles on it.
Car is too new to evaluate reliability - I gave it a 5 since my 98 acura integra has 212k miles on it and has been reliable.

Best Features

Bluetooth phone handsfree is fantastic. Synced easily and imported my android phone book - added voice tags and everything works great every time I get in the vehicle. Tons of power. I like the tire pressure monitoring system that shows pressure in each tire. Good rear seat passenger room - decent space behind the rear seats when they are up. Also like the factory Michelin tires.

Worst Features

Front passenger seat needs height adjustment. Would prefer adjustable rear vents in console rather than ducts under rear seat.

If this car is so great then why did you give it 0 stars?!? This is bringin down the average for the rest of us....VERY misleading!
