Acura For Life — I have had 4 Acura vehicles over the last 11 years. After I gave up my 05 MDX and got an 08 RDX I couldn't stop looking back at what I gave up. The RDX is a great little car but my MDX seemed to have everything that made Acura what it is. I just recently finally added to my line of Acura's by buying a used 09 MDX and I am loving it. So my wife now has the RDX full time. I love the way it hugs you in the seat. The convenience of NAV, XM Radio, Bluetooth, Memory seats, 3rd row, V6 power it is a great car!

Pros

Best handling of all SUVs I have driven and I have driven the ML from Mercedes, the G-Wagon from Mercedes and GL from Mercedes. It has decent power. It looks great and in my opinion and it has superior technoloy with great features like bluetooth, Acuralink, Navigation etc

Cons

No trunk space when 3 row is in use. Too many buttons. A simple touchscreen would have been better.

Luxurious, Technologically Advanced And Superior Handling — This car is loaded with desirable features from naivation to DVD players in the back to rear-view cameras. It drives really well for an SUV. With 300 HP, it produces a decent amount of power but could be better. It feels safe when driving it and maintenance costs are surprisingly affordable. This is a car that you can rely on to drive everyday without having to give up any of the niceties it has for practicality.

Nice Car, Fun To Drive, Too Bad About The Build Quality — I am an ex Toyota guy (4 Runner) thought I was at least maintaining a similar quality level but not so. I like the vehicle, does what I want it to do but fit and finish is terrible. Inside dash to door gaps are noticeably different side to side, rear tailgate alignment is awful and very noticeable, armrest was damaged along bottom from assembly, lower rocker panel moldings dont't fit body (when I washed it for the first time I thought they were falling off), gas cap cover tight on one side 1/4" gap on the other, rattle in the right rear door. Less than 1000K on the dial. Bought it for tow capacity and third row. I thought ACURA was the top end of Honda, my CRV makes the fit and finsh on this one look like a LADA!

I Thought I Was Stepping Up From My 2004 Pilot. I Regret Buying This Car! — It's been a parade of problems:interior leaks, creaking steering wheel, front end alignment issues, steering very heavy and stiff- Head restraints angle too far forward pushing your head and chin down towards your chest. AM radio reception very poor. Poor rear window visability.All this on a car with less than 800 miles.

Great Ride If You Don't Mind The Gas Guzzling! — Only thing I don't like is the current 14 mpg in the city. *_* Besides that the SUV drive great. The interior and the exterior look nice. So far we got the cargo box and the 5 bike rack, it's working out great, but we have become the go to vehicle.
