Pros

I have no desire to get another vehicle and plan on keeping this one for many more years.

Cons

That there are so many on the road now.  Obviously many other drivers feel the same way I do.

Buy One You Won`t Be Dissapointed — This little suv is a great vehicle. I have had it for 3 years and have had only one problem with my air conditioning. Other than regular maintenance it has cost me no money. The 4 litre turbo is amazing, it can get up and go with the big boys. The options are wonderful, XM, Blue Tooth along with voice command abilities.

Great Small Suv That Fills A Luxury Niche. — The RDX fills a perfect niche of upscale luxury in a smaller package. The 0-60 acceleration time of 6.3 sec. beats the X3 by quite a decent amount. The SH-AWD is outstanding in wet and icy weather. My only negative is the 22 mpg overall. I would expect higher miles per gallon, but the performance outweighs that small con.

Gas mileage could be better, turbo kills it.

Great Family Car That Doesn't Require Extended Daily Driving. — Performance is great, couldn't expect more. It is built solidly and offers a smooth and quiet ride. Interior is very comfortable. The gas mileage could be better and its required use of premium fuel is a bit much. But overall, its a real fun car to drive.

A Car In Cuv Clothing — Amazing to look at, drive, sit in traffic with. When i had my car in service the guys at David McDavid Acura were nice enough to loan me one to go drive around Austin.Everyone stared at it! It love to corner! and there was 0 lag.The k23 is an amazing engine and the SH-AWD was damn impressive.

Excellent — Great car; pricy but it's worth every cent. Quality is written all over it; performance wise is extremelly reliable in all conditions. Really low cost of ownership (so far) and is extremelly fun to drive. If you drive one, consider yourself lucky.

Beautiful In And Out And Easy To Drive. — I love it !!!!! I upgrades from a Toyota Corolla and I absolutely love this car.....................................
