The third generation RDX packs a lot of goodness into a slightly larger, slightly more expensive package. Check it out on this week's review!

      Would've liked a digital cluster instead of old-school analog dials.

      Also in that price range needs wireless cell charger.

      What can you say about extended warranty? Is it worth it?

      I just sold my 2017 Rdx and don’t regret it. Sorry Acura but I’m moving on to Mercedes. Way more better looking.

      I'm not sure how things cross over. I'm also not sure why the American models so often have different trim names!

      "Acura is calling it an all-new, exclusive platform—but the RDX started with the Honda CR-V architecture and modified the chassis and upgraded the powertrain." Motor Trend

      The Motor Trend 2019 RDX 2.0T faired even worse of all formal tests with a 7.1 0-60 mph time or one full second behind the RDX v6.That follows Consumer Reports 7.0s and Car & Driver 6.6s ranging from a half second slower or more behind the prior generation with 3 5l. Even the lower power Buick Envision 2.0T with less power and four less speeds accelerated quicker, stopped shorter, and handled MT handling test better than the RDX. "RDX's vague braking feel and response. Given that Acura equipped the RDX with "limousine" brakes, slowing down precisely was frustrating for many. Said Scott Evans: "Trying to make a stop sign is much harder than it needs to be."  "Acura's wide net leads to confusion about what aiming to be. "It's torn between being luxurious and soft like a Lincoln, sporty like an Alfa, or techy like an Audi, and those things sorta cancel each other out...on winding roads in Sport+ mode, but we didn't feel the emotion we expected."

      +J. Danny so sad:
      "Consumer Reports can no longer recommend six car models, including the Acura RDX SUV... because of problems identified in CR’s annual reliability survey. The survey has data on 470,000 vehicles as reported by their owners."

      The drive mode knob takes up way too much space for no reason. Most buyers of this car are just going to set it and forget it. It could've easily been place lower and smaller, less tacky

      RDX Lows: Touchpad tribulations, stiff ride, lethargic transmission The performance is more b-spec then see spec. Acura needs to free up the RDX Hardware to do its best work... Compared with last generation RDX, this new one requires an extra point for second to reach 60 miles per hour... Tires help increase skidpad grip by .04 G / last-gen, but this Utes .81 G still Trails almost everything else in the class, and the new tires howl when pushed. They only managed a 177. From 60 miles per hour also on the underwhelming end of the segment with soft brake pedal makes smooth stops tricky... About a spec branding is over promise to RDX is highly impressive stuff. It needs to be liberated. Car and Driver

      I’m sorry but I’ve turned in my Acura MDX AWD for the New Volvo XC 90 AWD. The comfort and luxury is top notch in the Volvo. I’m glad to see Acura got rid of the double screens. Anyone looking to spend this kind of money needs to test drive the Lexus and Volvo to get a really good idea of how much space you need and the least amount cabin noise.

      It's probably not such a good idea to buy the 1st model of any "new" car , but DAMN! I'm not such a fan of these full glass topped cars. Just not so enamored with the possibility of fractures and/or leaking of or damage to the opening system.

      What he says in this review is NOT how SH-AWD works. Most AWD systems require the front wheels to slip before they kick in.

      With SH-AWD, if you accelerate through a turn, it over rotates the outside rear wheel even when NONE of the other wheels are slipping. It also works like a normal AWD if there is front wheel slippage.

      True Touchpad is the future! People demand it! Touch interface is obsolete! To hard to use the touchscreen interaction. Big learn curve as to learn how to "touch" a screen! For example, do you use your thumb or your small pinko? No guidance unless you take a classes on how to interface with a touchscreen. Who has 3 years to get a degree on touch screen interface?

      Totally agree on the touchpad infotainment system, they are NOT safe to use while driving! Only idiots would put a touchpad interface in a car!

      Actually don’t look at the touchpad myself and the screen is positioned at a heads up level. Zero issues. It’s actually rather intuitive and brilliant. Quick to access what one needs when you get accustomed to it, which doesn’t take long at all. Only an idiot would make assumptions about it prior to testing it.

      I've had my RDX for 2 weeks and almost never have to look at the touchpad.
      When I had a touchscreen, I was constantly looking at it, because on-screen buttons have no texture or feel.
      How is that safer?

      How reliable would you say this turbo engine is? I believe the V6 is tried and proven for Honda but I would hate to replace a turbo at 150K

      Family Wheels In reply to Tellinhowitis121

      To be determined. But turbos aren't anything new. Our Volvo, for example, has 200,000 kms on it and the turbo is still running like a top. The turbo in our GMC diesel truck was also just fine. That truck had 320,000 kms when we sold it.
