"It is almost like comparing a Miata to a minivan. The harder you push the RDX, the better it feels. If you are pushing it hard through turns, it transfers more power to the rear wheels and most of that can go to the outside rear wheel. This helps push the car through the turn and make it feels more like a rear wheel drive vehicle. This greatly increases the fun factor of driving the car. In normal driving you may not notice this as much. What you will notice though if you buy the Advance version of the RDX is you get adjustable suspension in addition to sport modes for the transmission. Dial the drive mode to sport + and put the transmission in sport mode and it does a pretty good imitation of sports hatchback albeit a bit larger. Dial the mode to comfort and leave the transmission in normal drive and it is pretty relaxed on the highway. "
"There is clearly more room on the Pilot. I think the material are nice on the RDX but Ill take more room over nicer materials when room is tight to begin with. I also like the separate controls for the rear seat ventilation. Not exactly fair to compare the two as the Pilot is a large class car but I did find the front seats on the RDX to be roomier and more comfortable than the Pilot."
"I am extremely disappointed after reviewing and test driving the Tacoma. I felt the seats were too cramped for my 62 185 lb frame, there were some interior quality issues, and there were rear drum brakes (which I never accept! I upgraded the drums on my XJ as they are an inferior system that has no business being on a modern vehicle). The 6-speed auto was sluggish and non-responsive, and even test driving the 6-speed manual I was unimpressed, but I did love driving a manual again. I did love the tow capacity of the Taco (6800 for auto, 6400 for manual). The rear seat room was terrible, and its not something I would be able to road trip in comfort. There was the redesign in 2016, which changed the 4.0 liter to the 3.5 and changed a few engine dynamics, as well as the styling (which I love!) but the Tacoma needs a real major redesign. And the infotainment system (touch screen radio) is absolutely terrible like it was running on Andriod 2.0 or early software system from the early 2000s. The color and picture quality was rough, looked cheap, and was slow to respond. If I didnt already have a rock crawler I would consider buying one, but not as a daily commuter and light duty tower. Honestly your also overpaying for its price for the Toyota tax the same as paying the Jeep Tax. "
"I am officially buying this vehicle over the 2019 Tacoma as I was overall impressed. The seats are so comfortable and wrapped around me; the cockpit was well designed and made logical sense. I found the engine and transmission responsive, and all of the fun electronic toys were impressive. I didnt really have to drive the truck (I havent been calling it a truck, Ive been calling it a lifted Japanese AWD El Camino) as the Honda Sense suite literally accelerated, braked, and kept the vehicle driving between the lines. When the front seats were adjusted, there was plenty of room for me to sit in the rear. Every seat was comfy and I could easily sit in the Ridgeline for hours. The ability to tow light duty gear is nice, and with some modifications to my KLR650, I could also take my bike along for trips. I love the infotainment system, it was easy to use and the quality was crisp and clear. I am worried about fingerprints, but I found a screen protector on Amazon that would reduce the impact and make cleaning the screen easier. Also, the rear doors do not open as easy, but with modifying the door checkers with the same ones found in the front doors, the rear doors will open 5 more inches. The Ridgeline is a road trip champ, easy pick for a daily commuter, and will do light duty towing and hauling. Makes a great second vehicle as the BF has the F-150, and makes sense for our family. Our Husky will find the rear floors will have tons of space for trips over our F150 (that truck has a huge sub/amp combo on the floorboard, and I always felt she may be uncomfortable down there). "
