The 2019 Acura RDX is completely new and built off a brand new chassis. Stiffer, longer, and more stylish, this premium compact SUV kicks it up in terms of performance and features. The 2.0 direct injected turbo engine is a joy to drive, matched to a 10 speed automatic transmission and equipped with Acura's SH-AWD system.

      None of the reviews that I have both listened to or read have any mention of some important
      points on this vehicle. No one speaks of the GPS system that is subpar. A GPS
      that you cannot store a name to an address, A GPS that can only store 30
      locations( My 1992 Garmin 75 names locations) 
      There is no mention of some important amenities that it lacks There is
      no approach lighting, No rain sensing wipers, No electric tilt steering wheel
      to facilitate entry and exit, Poor interior lighting, No folding mirrors, come
      on Acura this is a $45k A-Spec Vehicle. Am I to understand that because it is a
      sporty vehicle it does not require these amenities?
      No one has observed that the tailgate does not fitting properly on the right side plus the
      left bumper edge is not aligned properly, When I complained, Acura of
      Pembroke Pines, they showed me another one with the identical problems. These
      vehicles should not have been allowed to leave the factory in this condition, there
      is also orange peel in the paint. I will admit that it does drive very well and
      it is an attractive vehicle, however if I had noticed the above, it would have
      been a deal breaker. A Hyundai Santa Fe comes standard with all the bells and
      whistles at a much lower sticker price. My 2016 NX was better equipped. If the
      NX had a better AWD system I would have never bought or even looked at the
      Acura RDX With my short experience with Acura, I must say that Lexus has
      superior customer Service..

      My wife really wants one. It's at the top of our budget though. The only trim I'd want is the A-SPEC, it does look fabulous. I do not like the touchpad/infotainment at all. Having no Android auto out of the box is absolutely ridiculous! I'm hoping the 2020 model will have it. I've read in some forums that the infotainment is laggy and or freezes up totally with some people's RDX's. Absolutely unacceptable in this day and age. I have a 2014 Ram 1500 Sport, with the Uconnect 8.4 with Nav. Too old for Android auto yes, but it's designed so well, it just works great.

      I didn’t notice any freezing or lagging on the system but I only drove it for a brief period compared to those that own it. I think you can get use to the touchpad/infotainment just like any other system. The A-Spec is really nice. I like what they’ve done.

      I really want to complement you. This review was not only very informative but I love the way you film and edit your videos. I also happen to agree with you On virtually all of your comments regarding the Acura RDX Advance trim. One thing I really wish they would’ve included are adaptive headlights. Why did the Canadian models include this and other features (like power folding side view mirrors), and the American models do not? First time I have ever hit the subscribe button on review videos.

      I bought a 2018 because I didn't like all that junks they put in and encountered lots of problems now: 10 speed tranny. info system and control, annoying engine shutoff at stop, Stupid button shifter. Of course the super ugly over size black wheels and other black trims. Wouldn't be surprise turbo is next recall. WGAF about MPG on a $45000+ car?

      After test driving a lot, we have settled on this or the BMW X3. The latter is definitely quicker but significantly more expensive and there is always the potential for durability issues. But I must say, German horses certainly seem to be more robust than those from Japan.

      The head to head with the BMW X3 actually showed that the RDX acceleration and speed was superior. Check out some of the youtube videos showing the comparison

      Outdoor Layne In reply to Outdoor Layne

      Yes, there is actually a lot of tech in it and we are still figuring it out. It is primarily my wife's car but I took it for a blast today and played with the modes. After owning it for a short time now I can say with confidence that it is really actually fun to drive. When we park it, we often come out with a few people looking at it which is both weird and flatering at the same time. Regarding the remote start: The A-Spec model that we have has remote start already built into the key fob which came from the factory. I am in Canada, however, so maybe they are spec'd differently up here? Not sure though.

      Good to know especially as I'll probably purchase this week so thanks for your fast reply. I believe I need to take for another spin as I was overwhelmed w/information & exhausted by the process. I'm in the Chicago area & have them down to $43,665 w/about $1k of accessories to sweeten the deal & a decent amount on my trade. I'm also working on getting 0.9% w/them & I'd like to get them down a bit more or at least throw in a remote start too.

      Outdoor Layne In reply to Outdoor Layne

      Yeah - we did actually end up going with the ASpec. We test drove them again and drove them much harder this time and I feel this is where the RDX actually sets itself above. The SH-AWD addition is quite impressive and the car in Sport + shifts lightning fast and has great low end torque. We also looked at a 2018 RDX but the handling for the new one, at least for us, was considerably more sporting.

      I have driven Acuras since 2000, including 3 TLs and 2 RDXs. Until getting the 2019 RDX SH-AWD Tech, my 2008 TL was my favorite car - it handled and cornered fantastically. I was considering changing brands after 18 years of Acuras and read multiple reviews and looked at Lexus, Infiniti, Mercedes and BMW. Once I drove the 2019 RDX it was no contest and I didn't have to spend $50k -$60k to be happy. I did not spring for the Advance or A-Spec (they were not necessary and the only thing I wish I had were the ventilated seats during this hot Summer), but if you are considering this SUV, definitely drive the SH-AWD. It handles like a dream for a luxury SUV of this size and in it's market class. My gas mileage for city driving is about 16 mph and on the highway about 26 mph - and the car is under 3,000 miles and has not even been broken in yet.

      NOT a fan of the button shifters...WTF Acura/Honda? Work on improving speed and handling and leave the damn shifters alone! I actually want to FEEL what I shift to, not press a button like im in a golf cart
      I feel like they are getting away more from being "one with the car", to all electric/ autonomous driving, not cool

      and the ASPEC RDX is nice, wish it was an option and not a trim level, bc it really doesn't change the DNA up enough to be a trim, imo

      Honda Civic 2017 Canadian models (all versions) have the head gasket leak issue. My brother's 2017 Civic touring engine has been rebuilt 2 times already and Honda refused to replace the vehicle or entire engine. But they gave us a 25-year lifetime warranty plus towing for free. The engine stalls and the car stops in the middle of the road when this issue comes up. The dealership agrees that this is a VERY common problem in ALL Honda Civics. I lost my trust on Honda products completely! I even wrote an email to Japan accusing them of not protecting their customers and selling junks and covering up their tracks. No replay from the Honda. I don't want a warranty, I want a reliable car so I don't get stuck in the middle of the Winter! The point of the story is don't buy Hondas and Acuras and expect a great customer service or reliability.
