What do you really want, a car or an SUV? The TL is great but the RDX is a poor attempt to upscale the Honda CR-V. The turbo engine is jumpy and gets terrible gas mileage. You would be better of with an MDX.

Get the TL. It's a sporty luxury sedan, with good power, Acura reliability, and great looks. My cousin has a 6 speed 07 TL and loves the car, and the only change that he would make is to get a Type S (turbo). The RDX is an ok car, but for a first car, especially since you're young, I would go for the sportier sedan, even though the insurance may be more expensive.

I would have to say the TL. However, if you want sportiness, the TL isn't it either. The TSX would be a better option. Also, it's less expensive than the TL. Check it out. You'll be glad that you did.

TL.It is roomier and a large luxury sports sedan. You should like it more.Plus the RDX is a Turbocharged SUV, which means you need to wait 45 seconds before turning the car off to let the turbocharger cool down every time you drive it. If you do not do that, the Turbocharger will have a shorter life(50,000-60,000 mikes) and will cost $1500+ to replace.Both cars require premium gas. 91 octane or better. And both require synthetic oils.

The Acura TL performance luxury sedan has set lofty standards for styling, performance, comfort and technology. Available for 2009 in two distinctly different models, TL and TL SH-AWD, the all-new fourth-generation Acura TL dramatically expands the model's capabilities and appeal with evocative style, a choice of two VTEC powertrains (including a new 305-horsepower V-6) and the TL's first-ever application of Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD).Boasting larger dimensions, optimized suspension, a new Sequential SportShift transmission, plus an available Technology Package featuring a comprehensive array of navigation and communication aids, the 2009 TL offers more appeal than ever before. Along with an available Acura/ELS Surround premium 10-speaker surround sound system and an all-new AcuraLink weather feature, the new TL is by far the most technologically advanced sedan in Acura's history.
so should go for Acura TL.
