"All service has been kept up to date per Honda requirements. Tires less than 1 year old.This car has never crashed, never had body work. Good sound system, heated leather seats, great handling, 240-horsepower turbocharged 4-cyl has great power. Looks good and fun to drive. From Edmunds: Safety Standard safety features for the 2007 Acura RDX include front seat-mounted side airbags, head-protecting side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor, active front head restraints, antilock brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control and a tire-pressure monitor. Interior Design and Special Features Thanks to its leather seating, metallic accents, blue illumination for the gauges and symmetrical dash design, the RDX's interior looks considerably more upscale than the average small SUV. The center console has a storage bin large enough to hold a notebook computer, but otherwise interior storage is average. Folding down the 60/40-split rear seat reveals up to 60.6 cubic feet of cargo room. Driving Impressions Acura has put together some pretty sweet running gear here. Acceleration isn't life-changing but this crossover SUV is certainly quick. The turbocharged engine seems to have been tuned to be torque-friendly down low but still somewhat "revvy" like other Acura engines. Power comes on strong after about 2000 rpm and stays there until the 6800 rpm redline. Thanks to the well-tuned suspension, SH-AWD, quick steering and 235/55-series tires, the Acura RDX can be driven hard on a canyon road with a minimum of drama and plenty of fun. On regular city streets, the ride quality is well within the limits for comfortable driving and commuting."

"Everything about the 2009 RDX is first rate- except- and this is a big except- the ride. It is the worst riding car/suv I have ever owned. You feel every road bump and every road ripple. Concrete roadways with expansion joints every 50 yards is actually comical. "Thump...thump...thump..." I bought new tires to see if that helped but to no avail. Kinda a shame, because we love the car's feel, look , the cargo space and the roomy back seats."

"This car drives like a sport car and handles wonderfully in traffic and the open road. Its not a economy car, however if driven normally I get 20mpg in town and 24 on the road at a steady 75mph. Plenty of cargo room with 61 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded flat."
