The well-equipped Acura RDX feels sporty, but its turbocharged four-cylinder engine is less refined than one might expect for the class. Handling is agile, but the ride is stiff. However, the RDX is loaded with high-tech features such as navigation with live traffic data.

"Great handling and acceleration."

Anonymous, HI (2007 Acura RDX)

"Exceptional acceleration with Turbo."

Anonymous, CA (2007 Acura RDX)

"Good acceleration and handling, but the stiff suspension can make for a rough ride on winter-damaged NH roads. They've apparently softened the suspension a bit on recent models."

GREG C., NH (2007 Acura RDX)

"good performance and NO timimg belt that needs to be changed- a $1000. expense"

JOHN F., PA (2007 Acura RDX)

"The turbo really makes the 4 cylinder go so it's fun to drive. It also handles really well. We also really like the size."

LEROY W., NC (2007 Acura RDX)

"Loved the 2007 RDX, driving in all weather conditions. On downfall, inability to tow even a small camper. I bought the MDX for camper vacations."

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Great on a long trip. Seems to eat up the miles. Comfortable. Reliable."

B W., GA (2007 Acura RDX)

"I hate the seats in this car. If I drive it, I always gauge my knee on the steering column when I get in. If I'm the passenger (usually in this car), the ride is excessively bouncy. It is all around not a comfortable car. Also, it is hard to see if there is a car in your blind spot."

Susan M., CA (2007 Acura RDX)

"Very comfortable seats. Satisfactory climate control. Bumpy ride. Some what noisy"

THOMAS B., CO (2007 Acura RDX)

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

Anonymous, ON (2007 Acura RDX)

"Responsive engine, comfortable interior, & good styling"

Anonymous, OH (2007 Acura RDX)

"Bought it used in 2009. Have put over 80000 miles on since then. Only normal maintenance and minor repairs."

WAYNE L., CA (2007 Acura RDX)

"The current RDX models are far too expensive for their value. A better quality Subaru is $10,000 less."

Anonymous, CA (2007 Acura RDX)

"Excellent value - great handling and enough room for two kids from 0-6."

Anonymous, VA (2007 Acura RDX)

"These cars just keep on running. The RL has over 95.000 miles while the RDX is pushing 70,000 and other than minor wear and tear issues, they have proven to be outstanding values. Thar RDX has excellent rear cargo space when the seat fold down."
