"I purchased this car from a dealer last spring. I purchased it online without having first inspected it-the ultimate mistake. I discovered that the "leather" seats were pleather- Acura's way of saying we are concerned about animals, but more concerned about our bottom line. The car was 2 years old when it arrived and had about 25,000 miles...Thank God the warranty was still available! Within a few months, the battery cables had corroded, leaving me stranded twice. Acura eventually replaced them for free. The car is loud. When I'm driving, the noise is really a distraction. Yes, there are new tires on it. Now, the serpentine belt, I'm told, needs replacing. There a loud squealing noise when I turn the steering wheel to the left or right. The Acura dealership is behind so I cannot bring it in for about 10 days! Hope my mileage stays under 50,000 between now and then. Also, the lift gate does not open from inside the car and there isn't a button on the back door to automatically close it...yes, I'm a bit spoiled. Not happy with this car. Looking for something new....SOON!"
Pros: "Luxurious. Turbo engine really makes the car move"
Cons: "Lots of extras some don't want/need."

"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.
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.
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."
