Default What your experience with gas mileage on the Acura RDX?

I am considering buying the Acura RDX for my wife. I have heard some nightmares about bad gas mileage for this car and would like to hear from any owners out there for true facts. I am also considering the Honda CRV which is a great car with good mileage however, my wife loves the luxury features of the Acura

The RDX get's bad mileage since it uses a turbo. Get the CR-V instead if you want good mileage.

It's horrible. An RL gets better mileage.

I too am looking into buying an RDX. The gas mileage is a big consideration for me too. It does have worse mileage than the CRV, but it also has those nice luxury features as well as an extra year on standard warranty. To me the extra year/miles on warranty is well worth a compromise in gas mileage.The RDX is much funner to drive too.

Frankly the RDX is a POS. Honda comes up with a new turbo engine and let's face sux donkey balls. Those K series engines are great by themselves but as soon as you throw in a turbo in there you are going to have to make more changes which Honda did not account for or rather spend on R&D. Give it a few more years. You might want to look into a Lexus.And it's not all that fun. If you want a fun car get a manual transmission. Those levers under the steering are fake-mission.
