Best Vehicle I’ve Owned.
Number one criteria for buying my car is safety. I feel safe in my RDX with plenty of shoulder distance between myself and the driver’s door plus the side curtain airbags of course.
On a recent road trip, rotating drivers, I got a chance to ride in the back seat. I was not aware how comfortable and spacious it felt back there.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the cost to own. Oil changes when the oil life falls to 5% or when the dash warning light indicates it’s due for service. Synthetic oil is a big money saver. Double the oil life? Compared to the usual 3 month or 3k miles with my previous Honda Accord. I’m on my second set of tires, second battery, other than that, no major parts have needed replacement. I expect many more years of service from my initial investment. It’s truly the best car I’ve ever owned.
Next to my old Honda Accord of course. It needed a new transmission at 384K miles. It was 21 years old.
I wanted an Acura. I got the RDX base model. No regrets.
