We've owned Honda vehicles for over 20 years. MOST impressed with every one - with the exception of our RDX. We absolutely loved the car when we first saw it on the dealership lot. Never having had any major issues with the previous Honda vehicles we've owned(2 Accords and 3 CRV's), we thought we'd add a "touch of class" in vehicle ownership. We purchased our RDX about 2 and a half years ago, and now have doubts in our decision. MOST disappointed in that we have had one issue and then another. Our most serious complaints are that with the front end suspension!! As mentioned, in a little over 2 years, we just had our third front end strut replaced. And trust me, being a senior citizen and ex-police officer, we're NOT ones to abuse our vehicles in any way nor neglect what need be. As I say, other than that, it's a Honda. We love the handling, style, economy and performance. The last time we brought our RDX in for strut replacement, the dealership shared our views on our frustration and disappointment, but sadly, that's the way it goes sometimes. Therefore, now that we have our car back home and cleaned up, we'll be trading it in - for a Buick. No longer bothering with Honda. Again, it's too bad for us as we have thoroughly enjoyed MANY Honda cars and other Honda-made products(Honda Shadow motorcycle, boat motor and two 4-wheelers) but will no longer deal with the company. Calling customer satisfaction made NO difference - other than "lending an ear". Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes.......

The RDX just glides two wheel drive is just fine. Better gas mileage and a better feel. Tech package is worth it! Got a zoom.

I purchased this 2014 RDX AWD Base. Doing comparisons with the CR-V, RAV4, and a Forester XT, RDX had the most bang for the buck as you'd have to load up the former cars in order to match the RDX, but with less power and ride quality. But it wasn't all paradise for me when I had 4 instances of transmission slippage during Jan. 2016. Long-story short, the transmission had to be replaced due to the problem actually happening to the mechanic when he test-drove the vehicle. Also, Reno Acura did their due diligence by also warranty-replacing the rear shocks due to thumping noise that comes from the rear. Now, I bought this car since I heard/read so many reviews of their reliability. As a working student, I need this car to get me through a 1.5-hour round-trip commute to the university, and was quite disappointed to learn of the defects. Repairs aside, I'm now questioning my decision to purchase this vehicle. I'm hoping that it'll get me through college before things really fall apart, and then trade it in promptly. For any of you experiencing problems, do your due diligence by documenting the problem.

THis car is one of the best I have driven. I have had Mercedes, and Lexus. My Acura is s mudder, and a snow machine. It is convenient to haul everything from grain to kids. The awd is super, and handles all weather. Also is a nice dress up car for church. One thing...........terrible connections for my iphone. You have to have a flashlight to find the charger. I would buy another rdx.

Mine must be the exception, but I doubt it!

Reading through the reviews I see things I've never experienced in 18 months/19+K miles. Low right seat position mandated by feds stupid regs. No brake noise, no chemical odor, no problem with bluetooth, no tranny noise, etc, etc.. Was skeptical of lack of rear AC vents. Florida resident with only AC complaint from rear seat being 'it's too cold back here'. Only down side is NOT fault of car or Acura. It's the moronic regs that limit the use of certain navi functions. The feds must think it's safer to hold your cell navi with one hand while driving with the other...go figure!

I am wondering if anyone else had this issue where there is a chemical smell emitting from the vents. It doesn't happen everyday, could happen 10 times a day and not happen for a week. I am concerned as to what the health aspects are. I also smelled it in a loaner car that happen to be a 2014 RDX also. I happen to be a repeat customer of the Acura and this is my 2nd RDX.

We have had our RDX for a year now (17000 miles). The RDX has a stylish exterior and a very comfortable driving position. The base comes with a long list of standard equipment including bluetooth,xm, backup cam, heated leather and sunroof- options packages on most competitors. Upon entry it sets the seat and mirrors to your settings. Pulling out, the strong engine and smooth, fast transmission make you feel confident in any traffic situation. The brakes are fully capable. We have averaged about 23 MPG in mixed driving. The cylinder deactivation takes a little getting used to, but helps in efficiency. The interior features are logically laid out and work flawlessly. Very good purchase.

After having nothing but great experiences with our last 5 hondas, the Acura RDX was a complete disappointment. Above 60 on smooth highway, its a pretty good ride. But around town in the sub 45 range, it is horrible! Within 3 months of owning it, we had all of the struts replaced under warranty. This made no difference. I don't understand this since it is basically a CRV chassis and the CRV rides quite a bit better. I thought maybe something was wrong with this particular one, but after reading other peoples experiences on Acurazine, this is the norm. Not just with RDX, but all Acura models at this time. 1st Acura I've owned, and last! Traded it in after 14 months, 12000 miles.

I have had my 2014 RDX for 4 months now and have driven it for over 11,000 miles. It replaced a 2010 TSX V6. I find the RDX to be everything the TSX was in performance and handles even better. (The V6 TSX was front end heavy.). I have been very pleased with the gas consumption averaging 27.5 MPG with mostly highway driving. Anyone looking for a mid size SUV should take a close look at this car. The base trim matches many of the other models luxury trim which makes it very price competitive with models you wouldn't expect.

Brake Safety Issue

Mine and all 2014 models have a front end metal on metal clang going over bumps. Diagnosed by two dealers as brake pad metal backing hitting caliper clips. Acura will not fix, dealer has made a temporary fix. Dealers are frustrated with Acura over issue. Dealer says he does not know if this is a safety issue. Filed complaint with Federal safety commission. Metal on metal will eventually break down. Acura will have to fix the problem if more owners complain to dealers. This is a potential dangerous brake issue. The clang is not something that a so called "high end" SUV should have. Acura calls it, "a Characteristic" of the model. If this is so then lower the price to a low end SUV.

A great choice - extreamly safe in an accident

I have had my 2014 RDX AWD tech for about a week now. So far I have been very happy with the car. It drives smooth, brakes well, and the transmission seems to work flawlessly. I am most happy with the turning radius, as my last two vehicles were monsters to turn and try to park. I also looked at the Q5, and besides the Audi being more expensive, I did not like the idea of the turbo 4 cyl engine. I've driven an audi with a turbo before, and it seemed very inconsistent - thats something that I did not want to deal with again. The RDX has great acceleration (and sounds pretty good too when you step on it), its too bad they hid the dual exhaust tips up under the rear bumper. **Update - I totaled this car about 4 months after I bought it. I was driving in the freeway, traveling up a grade where a car was stalled in the middle lane with no battery to power its lights. I smashed into the back of it going around 55-60mph, that was a shock! My passenger and I were able to crawl out of the car, more or less uninjured with just a few air bad burns on wrist / face. We, as well as my family, were very impressed with the safety of the car. I plan on buying another sometime in the future.

2014 RDX - Comfortable but a vibration issue ruins the fun

Purchased in late Dec 2013 and after 3 months and 3,000 miles, here's my review: Ride is comfortable, agility is great, suspension is fairly stiff. Seats are supportive and comfortable (both front and rear). Sound system is great. BUT... The car has a vibration issue from about 60 MPH on up. Had the tires spin balanced, road force balanced, the prop shaft replaced... still there. The vibration is not severe, but it's ever present and on long trips, leaves your feet tingling a bit and ready to get out. Very annoying. Rode with the dealer service tech, he feels it too, but says that's as good as it gets. Because of the vibration, feels like I made a $38,000 mistake.

Good performance and value. after 1 year +, the acura rdx remains excellent choice. Big enough but not huge like MDX. Does great in snow. Nav and tech are outdated but new version 2015 + has improved. Driving is a bit numb. Good pickup for crossover suv and good fuel economy for a vehicle this size. update after 2 years: No major issues. Has been reliable. I'm gl ad I selected the RDX.

Have had Acura's since 1998, always a TL. My wife needed an all wheel/4 wheel drive that was not huge so we got out of a 2010 TL and into a 2013 RDX without the tech package. Its nice, but its not going to blow you away. As with all of my previous Acura's, its a quality build and reliable. Quick enough but I find it a little herky jerky in the steering, but, I have a 2010 Pathfinder which is like a tank compared to the RDX. It is pretty good in the snow, which is why we got it so I suppose that all in all, it does what its supposed to. It shares a radio with the Honda CRX and from what I am told, the all wheel drive platform as well. I guess its the Acura version of the CRX.

The RDX replaced my 2011 Q5. I bought it because it had more standard features than a Q5, was $5000 less than a Q5 and positive reviews. It is a good car in many respects but the suspension, interior quality and road noise reduction are less that what you expect from a "luxury class" SUV. The vehicle now has about 36K miles and the dealer has had to replace the rear struts twice and fix an annoying drive train vibration. I also replaced the brakes and rotors at 24K miles at my cost - Acura said brakes were not covered by warranty even with relatively low mileage. The repair shop said the rotors were warped and this should not happen in any vehicle with only 24K miles.

The rdx is a great car as far as it goes. It simply does not go far enough. Besides a few design flaws, weak A/C, poor interface to the iPhone, the rdx lacks many key features/options of luxury SUV. Parking sensors are offered, nor is adaptive cruise control, ... To add insult to injury many features that should be standard are only available on the tech model - fog lamps, power lift gate, .... Great potential but fails to deliver in the end

I traded-in a 2011Q5 for this vehicle. This is an okay car but so far I am not in love with it; it sounds and rides like a slightly upgraded Honda. Pluses: About $4000 less than comparably equipped Q5-good standard features and value priced Comfortable driver's seat Good back seat leg room Good cargo layout - space not wasted Quiet engine with good power and pickup Good storage in front cabin Minuses: Q5 feels more solid and is more fun to drive RDX has choppy rear suspension Interior materials are okay but not what you might expect in a luxury vehicle Noticeable road noise, especially on uneven pavement

I have had my Acura for three weeks and I remain very satisfied with my choice of the RDX. I had narrowed my search down to three brands when I arrived on the Acura sales floor in Tustin California. I always felt that a root canal was preferable than shopping for a new car. The salesman I was put in contact with, Kevin, knew his product, easily explained the car's features and then stepped back to let the car sell itself. During the next few weeks I found myself back on the sales floor several times to ask Kevin questions about some of technological features. That's when I found Kevin to be as accommodating after the sale as he had been before.

In my opinion, the RDX is as capable as a 5-passenger SUV can get. Drivetrain is outstanding, ride and handling are very good, but if you want GPS, get a Garmin. You'll save money and prevent road rage. The tech package is designed to eliminate use, except by driver's voice, if the vehicle is in motion. This prevents use by the passenger/co-pilot unless the driver is told to "say OK", "say two", "say next", etc. and the voice recognition has difficulty with my voice. I say "two", it gives me a list of nearby "schools". If you frequently are a vacationing couple, save your marriage, skip the tech package.

I just downsized from a 2011 MDX to 2014 RDX AWD and am happy with my choice. Getting about 27mpg in RDX vs. 19mpg in MDX. A little disappointed about losing SH-AWD but a good trade off for fuel economy. New RDX looks sharper and feels roomier than its predecessor (my brother has the older model), handles corners nicely, quiet and luxurious interior, and new keyless ignition start is a plus that wasn't available in the 2011 MDX. My biggest and perhaps only complaint is that the E-break is too close to my leg! Smashed my shin into it about three times in the past three weeks that I've driven this car. Overall, a spritely and spirited vehicle.

I recently purchased a 2014 RDX with the Technology package. The Build quality and power are very good. - is the steering wheel extra small? I am extremely disappointed with the technology of the vehicle - even after purchasing the technology package. Big rip off. the GPS is the same hard to use out dated GPS they have been installing since 2004. Hello Acura!! Has anyone there ever used an iPhone?!. You can't use the steering wheel controls to activate Siri. You can upload your songs to the hard drive but it's just a big list of music files - you really can't select songs or artist. Very disappointing.

Test drove BMW X3, Lexus RX300 and Audi Q5 2.0. I can say the RDX was a winner hands down. Powerfull engine, luxurious interior, quiet, smooth and comfortable ride, excellent navigation. All that for at least 10k less than other 3 brands. I liked the Acura's straight forward pricing. FWD or AWD with technology package or without it. BMW, Lexus and Audi starts at the similar base, but by the time you ad few essential option packages, the price skyrockets to 50k. Audi tries to make you believe that their's is the only luxury SUV, so you should not even think to pay below the sticker price. what a joke. The Acura RDX comes fully loaded, no confusing packages and pricing. Very pleased.

Balanced and competent vehicle!

I purchased my 2014 Acura RDX about three weeks ago and I love it! I traded my 2006 BMW 530xi for this vehicle because the maintence costs were really adding up for me. I was looking for reliability and performance and this car has both! It accelerates well and provides great comfort. The size allows for passengers to be pampered without wasted space or bulk. Mileage is reasonable for this type of vehicle (20-22 in mostly city driving and 26 hwy at 75-80 mph). The car is a good value based on content and performance. Updat7/2016: Still love my RDX! Not loving the tread life of my stock Michellin tires. 38,000 and they might not make it to 40k. Otherwise all is good. Would buy one again.

Bought this for my wife, she formally owned a 2011 RDX. The 2011 was a choppy ride but a great handler. This is a very different. It's smooth with a more refined feel. Inside seems a little roomier. So far she is loving it. This is our 6th Acura, even so I shopped others and concluded this to be the best $40,000 mid suv out there.

The RDX does everything a car is supposed to do -- it's comfortable, fun to drive, pampers you a little and makes financial sense. It's less expensive than its competitors but drives as well or better. The combo of auto and manual transmission is practical and fun. Manual downshifting on mountain roads saves on brake wear -- and with cylinder deactivation mpg can jump suddenly from 20 to 30 or even 40 with no change in sound or feel. Bluetooth and USB audio work beautifully. Seats are very comfortable and storage space is good. I upgraded from a Honda and the family resemblance is clear. This company makes high quality cars for those who wish to balance comfort, convenience and value.
