2013 Acura RDX

Outside and in, from the curvy sheet metal to the soft leather interior, to the engine and even transmission, the RDX is all new for 2013. Acura's goal was to make the RDX a more viable choice for professionals in their early 30s who value comfort over sportiness, and who will eventually need extra room for the baby seats.

While we've witnessed dramatic growth in the number of compact SUVs, sporty SUVs and premium SUVs, until now the only vehicle that delivered the virtues of all three was the BMW X3. The RDX also features Acura's first turbocharged engine.

About Acura RDX

The 2015 Acura RDX is a rare example of a smaller SUV that does almost everything right. It adeptly plays in the premium segment, yet boasts a modest character, a strong-yet-efficient V6, and a long list of standard equipment. Available in front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), Acura's 5-passenger luxury SUV offers generous cargo space and desirable creature comforts such as standard leather and commute-easing ergonomics. While the RDX offers a top-notch optional audio system, it lacks the highly advanced infotainment and preventive safety systems such as blind-spot monitoring available in rivals like the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK Class and Audi Q5. Still, the RDX stands out with its near- and long-term value, and Acura's impressive history of reliability.

"Been considering a new car for some time. I've had my 1999 4Runner for 13 1/2 years. Considered replacing it with the 2012 4Runner but it is taller and doesnt seem to corner and handle nearly as well as the RDX. Originally the MDX was on my list, but with the RDX being $10,000 less expensive, and better on gas mileage, I am very pleased with my choice. Had the new car almost 2 weeks now and loving it. Only quirk that can be annoying is having to unplug and replug in my Iphone on occassion because of technical glitches, but went back to dealer and they explained to me how to prevent those."

"I owned the 2014 RDX since June of this year. This is my first Acura and I loved the features and handling of the RDX. I chose the RDX because it cheaper and looks classier than the Q5 and X3. There had been a problem with vibration since mid November. This is the exact same vibration problem by reviewer "Disappointed So Far". I took it to the dealer and they've confirmed that the vibration is due to the (VCM) variable cylinder management system. When the system is engaged it caused vibration in the front end and you can feel it. The dealer told me Acura is working on a dampening system which won't be ready until February."

"Bought a 2014 RDX. After approximatley 500 miles noticed a major vibration. Took the unit into the dealership, and they informed us of a service bulletin that the drive shaft should be replaced to take care of the problem. Problem is still present after the replacement of the driveshaft. I then contacted Acura. After several days the Client Relationship Manager stated the following: -Dealer ran the vehicle without the VCM connected,and the vibration went away -Vibration is within tolerance -Nothing more that Acura can do -The Variable Cylinder Management is the cause of the vibration"
