Comfort convenience and luxury.

2018 Acura RDX w/Technology Pkg

Overall the Acura rdx thus far has been a great car. Although I do not drive extensive periods overall and generally use it only for my short commute and had to take it on one trip that was over 300 miles it is been great and I have had no complaints. It is extremely comfortable car it rides smoothly. You can definitely feel that it is a luxury car and how it drives and how it overall is extremely comfortable. It is big enough where I can fit my family and my two dogs in the car comfortably for a short road trip. The only somewhat complaint I have is in the back trunk area it seems rather deep and there’s not much window room for my dogs in the back so they are a little crammed. Another negative if it is even considered one would be the overall screen and navigation of the on screen menus is a little convoluted and can be slightly hard to navigate especially while driving.

I was coming from an ILX. It was a huge upgrade.

2018 Acura RDX w/Technology/AcuraWatch Plus Pkg

The car is a real joy to drive. The driving experience is really top notch. The safety features are not intrusive and overall quite helpful. The infotainment system takes some time getting used. But once you get comfortable with it, it is pretty good. The approach is a bit unconventional, but they did put a lot of thought into it. Again, once you are used to it, it is very effective. The things I do not like is the back up camera is fairly crappy and when backing up at an angle it does not feel precise. Mileage is not great, but that is part of the spec. Overall very happy with it, and no major complaints.

We know you are excited to receive rewards but to secure your account and make sure your rewards are sent to the correct email, click the link below and verify this is your email address. The parallels between entrepreneurship and music production (there is a lot artists can learn from running a business). Whether every artist can do music full time (and if they should even try). My recommended learning path for electronic music production. Exactly what people should look for in an online music production school. We go on a lot of fun tangents in this one (but we mostly stick to music, business and life.
