New buyer’s initial reaction of the Acura rdx.

I just purchased my 2016 Acura rdx with the advanced package and four wheel drive, and I couldn't love it any more. I was driving a 2006 Acura tl for 10 years and it got me hooked on the brand. I had 0 problems with it besides replacing the breaks and a couple of flat tires. I haven't had the rdx long enough to experience any problems but it drives very well. It has plenty of room with the back seats down and several advanced tech features with a beautiful display. Love this car.

- Jake S

My favorite part about the car is how much room there is in it.

I have not had this car for very long but I love how smooth the car drives and all of the radio stations that are available for the first 3 months for free! The car is very spacious with a good size trunk. There are 2 sets of keys that come with the car (1 and 2), and you can set your seat to a position that you feel most comfortable in so when you use that key the seat will be in position for you.

- Megan V

The rdx is the perfect vehicle for a family, a couple or a single person.

I have had no issues with my vehicle. I do regular maintenance and have never needed a repair of any kind. . I wish the vehicle came with running boards and a roof rake. . There's lots of room for a car seat and an adult in the back seat. The back area is roomy and can fit four large suitcases. The front seats fold all the way down flat, so you can carry a rolled up rug, or in my case lumber.
