Our reviews give you two perspectives. Jakub takes the perspective of the car enthusiast, while Yuri represents the interests of the general consumer. You won't find details about engine compression ratios here, instead you'll have real world opinions on what it's like to drive and own cars.

      Would you get the RDX over the X3 M40i? I know you mentioned X3, but just wondering if that includes the M40i. Two different levels, I know...

      No one seems to use the navigation system to say how terrible it is. You cannot name any location besides home. Limited to 30 locations of which they are addresses without names. A-spec model lacks rain sensing wipers, overhead cameras, approach lights(puddle lights), and folding mirrors. All reviews seem to be about looks and performance of which I will admit that it shines. No mention about fit and finish and orange peel in paint.

      Thinking about buying Acura MDX? Think again.๐Ÿ”ฎ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸฆŒ How come, Acura. Three weeks passed and no answers. ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸฆŒ๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿ”ฎA car under warranty 25 000 miles was towed way to the dealership. Three weeks have passed and they are still looking into the issue". It's like looking for a niddle in a haystack" they said. "Something with electronics " Meanwhile No loaner is provided by Acura!!! The only offer from them was to tow the car to a different dealership at Your expense. Be aware. Acura MDX will broke , Acura road assistance will come 15 hours later and tow it away. You'll not hear from them for three weeks. They will not give you a loaner or pay for your rental car because " what if it's not a warranty case". Acura client relationships says " we understand your frustration. They are still looking into the problem with your car". Stay away!๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿค‘

      The grill was better executed on the RDX. But the TL... the TL is garbage.

      Savage geese. StraightPipes and Savagegeese are in top 3 best reviewers. Thing is Straightpipes not enough comparison to similar vehicles. Personally I'm with Savagegeese that Honda has too many reliability issues and their designs suck the big one (later is my opinion). I mean the civic- horrific looking. Accord. Looks like a dodge challenger- ugliest car on the road, Passport- is it on stilts? Minivan- ditto. All their cars are atroscious looking. The 4 cylinder turbo oil gas dilution problem has class action lawsuits. Why would someone reward this company by buying what's essentially an overpriced Honda as all Acuras are. Would you seriously spend $70k on an Acura RLX that's an Accord with super handling AWD. Ya- that's worth it. Can't stand the Honda gear changer in the CRV, the spedometer, the lack of safety in the base CRV. Their subcompact cars, and suvs are dangerously underpowered in my opinion (same for many manufacturers ).

      I think the A-Spec will do nicely for me. I don't really want a 360ยฐ camera and like aggressive looks. I'm also hoping that without the 360ยฐ camera the normal camera will take up a larger part of the screen.

      Basically Honda/Acura is not capable of vehicle manufacturing, itโ€™s a company for lawn mowers or motorcycles at best. The company is always bragging about interior/exterior of the vehicles, has anyone seen them bragging about engine or transmission? See how many problems they had in the past, https://acurazine.com/forums/3g-rdx-problems-fixes-458/harsh-shifting-2nd-3rd-971060/
      Iโ€™m just waiting my RDX 2019 to be recalled for transmission replacement, but what can they replace it with? This transmission issue is not only for RDX, itโ€™s common to all Honda/Acura: https://www.autoblog.com/2019/04/25/honda-odyssey-minivan-recall-transmission/

      I think it has the most attractive and futuristic interior design in the segment. I like it a lot. Exterior is nice as well.
