Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Tech pkg. ( Nav/Hard Drive)
Cons: MPG( still breaking in though,I hope) Voice ActivationAggressive styling, not like everything else. Great mix of Luxury/Performance. Love the Tech pkg. Heated seats are nice, but should be cooled as well. Love the 'DC-10 Cockpit' as my friend called it, @ night with all the lit up buttons( and yes I like ALL of the buttons).
Pros: the engine sound
Cons: aperances an the gripit takes on runbetter in quality for mantanances better milages smooth run
Worst Paint I have ever seen! GPS stinks!
Cons: PAINT JOBI have the White Pearl Paint and the front and rear plastic bumpers do not match the rest of the car. They both have a distinct yellow tint. ACURA says they are all this way and refuses to do anything! The GPS shows the name of the street you are on, not the street you are coming up to. GPS voice response is unreliable at best. Note that I was born in southern California and have little if not no accent No touch screen means that you have to use the dial to enter data, a real big negative. The SHAWD makes this the best handling car I have ever driven. I would like more power however. Very poor fuel economy! I added a Garmin GPS for under the cost of the map update and its far better.
Pros: Handling of the car.
Cons: DVD Audio. Where can you buy those?Best TL every produced. Great design and style on both exterior and interior. Seats 5 comfortably. Lots of trunk space. Up to date technology. The most interesting part of this vehicle is the performance. Power transfer is immediate. Suspension and Handling is similar to the german cars. MPG 33 hwy / 24 city (my calculations)
Pros: all maintenance parts are designed for do-it-yourselfers
Cons: The AC control, it looks simple but is not logical in designThe initial quality was good but right now we are at 78000 miles and the car is falling apart, there are rattles everywhere. Our 1989 Accord LXI still runs like a tank, no rattles-nothing.
Great car for people who like technology
Pros: Voice controls
Cons: Road maps for navigation aren't as up to date as I'd likeNot only a great ride in all kinds of weather, it allows almost everything to be controlled by voice. You can make calls, adjust navigation or climit control and even change radio stations without taking your hands off the wheel. The fit and finish are very good and not a squeak or rattle exists in almost 90K miles.
Pros: turbo charger, comfort seats, handling, everything
Cons: nothingthis is the most exciting car i have ever owned and i have driven 4WD from aspen co., to nyc, but not in the luxury and handling of this RDX. i told the salesman that i didnt think this car would handle snow and ice, i was wrong...it is a tough one especially with its turbo charger. i will always live in an ACURA from now on.
