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


I have had my RDX (AWD, Base) for 6 months.
It is fun to drive and very comfortable.
Previously I had a 2001 Toyota Highlander Ltd.
I looked at the MDX (too large) and the X3 (too costly) and finally decided on the Base/AWD RDX.
Wanted some of the features of the Tech Package but decide not worth $4K for the.

I almost did not buy the car because it was missing some key features I expected in Luxury/near luxury-brand SUV

Best Features

Size is great - perfect for my wife and I plus our 60 Lb Golden Retriever 28 MPG on the road at 70 MPH Smooth ride, fun to drive Sat radio works well, especially on long trips

Worst Features

Base model should have Light in the back Power outlet in back Vent for rear seat Fog lights and HID lights should be standard on base model Power light gate should be standard on base model (std on BMW X3) Real blind spot indicator Adaptive cruise control Distance monitor (parking guide) in both bumpers Dial by voice Better interface to iPhone 5 music (can not get albums) Way to shut off the car and keep the radio/HFL phone working
