The article title says "no surprises", but they spend 3 paragraphs talking
about how the car's handling is way more fun than expected. Their bottom
line is that you expect excellence from Acura and this car delivers, so "no
surprises".

I test drove it and it's nothing special. Too small, too expensive, not
enough oomph. Maybe the turbo wasn't working in mine because the power
band seemed real close the RSX I had...you had to wind it up to get any
power (like most Hondas).

I didn't push the handling, but I wouldn't get an SUV to drive up to the
edge anyway.

Check out the Car & Driver website or last issue. The RDX is in there and it
got some pretty good reviews. The 0-60 on this is 6.5 and the 1/4 mile time
was 15.1 @91. A skidpad test of 84 and with S-AWD makes this a fun ute
IMHO.

The RDX is a 4000 lb. SUV. It is NOT a sports car. Honda should
reserve SHAWD for their sporty cars and not encourage agressive
cornering in their SUVs. Idiot drivers are going to find themselves in
a heap of trouble next winter.

Perhaps but they'll do it anyway. I haven't seen any Acura commercials
showing the RDX. I hope they're not promoting it that way.
