The height of the vehicle is very nice making it very easy to get in and out.

2008 Acura RDX Tech Pkg

Like my vehicle because of the turbo it makes it so easy to merge onto the freeway. It is a very comfortable car. The front seats are very comfortable and are able to adjust the driver's seat to a perfect spot. The back seats have very good legroom for passengers. The cargo space is very generous and has a cover so your packages are hidden. It is an older model but the technology was very advanced for its time. The technology was also very easy to use.

Great in all weather terrains!

2008 Acura RDX Tech Pkg

I love my vehicle it runs really well and is great in all weather terrains. Downside it has a turbo so it eats gas and it is preferred you put premium gas. Other than that I love the car and performance. It has a lot of room for our whole family and the kids can make a mess and it is easily cleaned because of the leather seats.

- Jackie K

Accurate review for Acura.

2008 Acura RDX Tech Pkg

I love this car! It drives great and is a great care in general. It is a 2008 and the only thing I had to replace was second gear when I received it. If you are looking for a good commuter car, this is it. I would highly recommend! It drives smooth and I have not had any issues with it!

- Sara M

The car is both elegant and versatile.

2008 Acura RDX Tech Pkg

This has been a very reliable vehicle. Handling is a dream and I love the engine and transmission package. The ability to choose the gear I'm in is very handy for driving in the snowy mountains of Colorado. The on-board GPS is wonderful for our road trips.
