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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Charmaine N., IL (2010 Acura RDX)

"This car drives and accelerates like a champ. The Turbo charged engine is amazing. There is about a 1 sec lag, but when it kicks in, watch out! The downside is the mileage isn't that great. Still, overall, this is a superior vehicle!"

"Seats are very comfy, and the car gives a good ride. It's relativity quite."

"Choppy and bouncy ride is only significant negative on this vehicle. Not smooth at all."

Anonymous, TX (2010 Acura RDX)

"This car is extremely comfortable for long rides or short ones. The leather seats are just right. Nice fit. The noise level is what I would expect for a car of this class. The ride is a bit sporty and thus a bit firm, but it is still great for long trips. The seats counter that stiffer ride nicely!"

Neil V., MA (2010 Acura RDX)

"It has a rough ride compared to MDX."

Anonymous, OK (2010 Acura RDX)

"Very loud street noise for luxury car"

Anonymous, MD (2010 Acura RDX)

"I have the lumbar seats which are very comfortable. Currently the noise is bad because of the new pirelli tires which are noisy."

Anonymous, ON (2010 Acura RDX)

"i find the seats could be a little longer. could use a bit more lumbar support but i do love the fact that the car seats are heated and they heat rather quickly. the ride is a bit noisier than what i would like."

Cathy C., QC (2010 Acura RDX)
