2013 Acura RDX - why it is still my dream car

I chose my car because it's the easiest car I've ever driven. It didn't take any time to adjust to driving it - it was so comfortable! It takes corners like a pro and has great visibility. The cars' features are very easy to use. One time when I was having car trouble, the car automatically called the dealership for me and gave me all of the information I needed to explain the issue on the display screen while I was driving. This one issue occurred while the car was still under warranty, but otherwise it has been very reliable. I also get great gas mileage averaging around 24 mpg all the time, with a majority of non-freeway driving. One of the top features that sold me on it is that this car is top rated in the ice and snow. Although I typically put studded snow tires on through the winter, as I work at a hospital and have to commute to work no matter the weather, I once got caught in a snowstorm without them and while cars crashed all around me, I was able to maneuver around the accidents and safely make it home, including driving up a steep hill when another road was closed, without sliding around or having any issues. I would re-choose this car again in a heartbeat and plan to drive it for at least another 10 years.

Best vehicle ever owned: 2013 Acura rdx owner. Smooth ride and very dependable.

Excellent vehicle. The Acura rdx has been the most reliable and comfortable car I have ever owned. Only had one issue with replacing the computer CPU which controls most of the electronics. I love taking long trips in this car. No blind spots in mirrors. Great stereo system. I have been in a couple of accidents and have to had some major bodywork done, but was surprised that the accidents never altered the quality performance of such a smooth drive even after bodywork was done after the accidents. It feels like a luxury car to me without a high price tag. The body style has not changed and still looks like a new car today.

Acura RDX 2013 Technology Package

I love my RDX. It is comfortable, easy to drive and the perfect size. The technology package is really an added bonus. I have a larger screen display, automatic trunk and remote start which just makes daily life tasks more convenient. I haven't had any major issues with the car itself and it is already 6 years old. The Acura dealership is so easy to work with and even provides free lifetime oil changes. I think Acura�s are excellent cars. They are priced well, but still feel luxurious. I don�t know if I would purchase anything but an Acura in the future.
