poor suspension - lacking standard features
By garrett10 on


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


I own a 2013 RDX .
Ordered to get model and colors, have no need for navigation.
If considering this car make sure to take an extended test drive and check to make sure the features you normally expect are there.
I have owned over 50 autos and this is the worst mistake I've made since the Oldsmobile diesel.
Ride is fine on highway if you don't encounter pot holes, small bumps or rough pavement.
Even crawling over a speed bump makes the front suspension sound as if it's coming apart.
Embarrassing if you have passengers as they will think something is broken.
The front passenger seat has no "up" adjustment.
My wife hates riding "in the hole".
Uses cushion!, in Honda's premium brand?.

Best Features

Responsive engine, Michelin tires, push button start, nice dash controls for radio, heat etc., Nice dealer service.

Worst Features

Expected standard equipment in any premium brand model should include: passenger seat with up adjustment, rear seat heat vent, cargo cover, fog lamps. The following are dealer added options and often standard on the competition: cargo cover, fog lamps, roof rails, mud guards, cargo area mat
