Great car, Tech package a disapointment
By retired01 on


2014 Acura RDX Technology Package 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


In my opinion, the RDX is as capable as a 5-passenger SUV can get. Drivetrain is outstanding, ride and handling are very good, but if you want GPS, get a Garmin. You'll save money and prevent road rage. The tech package is designed to eliminate use, except by driver's voice, if the vehicle is in motion. This prevents use by the passenger/co-pilot unless the driver is told to "say OK", "say two", "say next", etc. and the voice recognition has difficulty with my voice. I say "two", it gives me a list of nearby "schools". If you frequently are a vacationing couple, save your marriage, skip the tech package.

Best Features

V6 engine is strong, responsive and efficient - delightful.

Worst Features

Enable GPS control if there is a passenger present. (There's already a passenger sensor to enable the airbag.)

Couldn't agree more, both with the general assessment of the car, and with the tech option. It's been a delight to own and drive, including one or two long road trips. We opted for the base model and use a separate GPS, and it works out just fine.
