I've owned this little wagon for over a year. I was pretty smitten at first, but like anything, living with it reveals faults.
I must have bad spatial recognition; it's smaller than I thought. Even our young kids find the rear seating confining. Luggage space is adequate. We've added a Thule box for extended trips. Which...
Brings down gas mileage to CUV territory because the little 4 cyl has to work extra hard. However, without the box we see 28 to 32mpg on the highway and 23 regularly in the city. Another gear would help, but the transmission shifts smoothly and when you want it.
I do like the tech package, particularly the ELS Sound System. The overall design of the car is nice.
Ride and handling are great. It's a fun little car to throw around with only the most pock-marked roads making their presence known.
I do like getting 30+ mpg on the highway, however that's with light loads and a light right foot.
Well, how about making a TL Sportwagon?!Obviously, more room and more power would be great. I'd love to see Acura/Honda come up with a 2 liter turbo for power and mileage, which would be great for this car.

Have owned my wagon for a month now and love it. Purchased a Demo for only 27k. After pricing the BMW 3 series wagon and the Audi A4 equally equipped........10k+ difference, forget it. For 10k they can have more horse power and all wheel drive (live in SoCal don't need it). This engine is peppy enough and with the planned Icebox intake, power will be just fine. Recently got 32mpg Hwy averaging 70 mph. Sold my 2005 Mercedes E320 Wagon for this and its sooooo nice to have a transmission that shifts without hesitation. Not as quiet and smooth as the Merc but a new Benz was 55k....enough said.
XM, ipod hookup, heated seats and Bluetooth phone/phone book.
The RDX engine....Turbo charged, but there goes the mileage.
