Reliable, stylish, and comfortable for the long-term.

2017 Acura RDX Base

The car rides very smoothly and is spacious on the inside. Even though its a base trim level you still get a lot of excellent features like leather seats and other luxury features. The car is very reliable and I have only had to do minimum maintenance. Seats are incredibly comfortable for long drives. The back seat is spacious enough to fit large adults. I feel safe in the car with by infant and there is plenty of space in the back to haul all of the baby stuff that I need. If I had more than one kid I would probably prefer a larger vehicle, but this one would still work for awhile. The body of the car is attractive and I believe the car will hold its value over time, so when I am ready to sell it I will still get a good trade in value. Overall I believe this car was a good purchase and I have yet to identify any deficiencies.

Acura RDX: Durable, Reliable, and Worth

2017 Acura RDX Base

The vehicle is super nice in its ability to function and do various tasks such as temperature control, rearview camera, and having the various sensory abilities. The car is reliable in being able to run for a long time and also to have few repairs. The bulky size can be both advantageous and harmful to the cars capabilities. It is quite comfortable because of the size. There are multiple USB ports and storage space for smaller items like magazines or cup holders. It is also easy to clean and can take hard hits without much damage.

Great young family vehicle.

2017 Acura RDX Base

This vehicle is perfect for a new family. Reliable, gets cool in Summer and warm in Winter quickly. Very fast when I need to accelerate onto a busy highway. Connects my phone almost instantly. Pretty good on gas, and the tank seems large. Very comfortable for taking long trips. My family and I have been getting Acuras for years and the dealerships are always wonderful to work with. I just wish there was a little more room in the trunk for storage.

The Ideal 21st Family Business Car

2017 Acura RDX Base

Really reliable. Great way to get around town with good gas mileage. Good space in for 5 people... one of the few newer 4 door cars that can actually fit 5 people. We have taken it in a couple of time for normal services but nothing beyond that. Great technology with the screen inside the car, which has a great map and the speakers are really good

The Car That Could Use New Seats

2017 Acura RDX Base

The seats do not come to the underneath of my knee. I hate that. I like it for long road trips for the seat to reach my knees. The RDX does not have much leg room in the back seat. It is a very reliable car, although my tires haven't lasted 3 years even though I have them rotated every oil change.

Basic review on outer view of car.

2017 Acura RDX Base

Reasonably comfortable, a little large for myself a petite woman, but useful up to date technology. Gas per mileage pretty decent, scratches easily on paint. Good amount of adjustable features and seat position for comfortable view of road while driving.

Love the headlights, no other vehicle has them

2017 Acura RDX Base

Nice, good miles, feel upholds value and kid friendly, my daughters favorite vehicle and easy to clean while not bad on the eyes love the color frame. Could use better brake system and stereo system could be better but love upgradeable options available
