Model Highlights

The 2007 Acura RDX is one of the few vehicles on the market that combines handling, good power, the latest technology, and room for five with nearly 30 cubic feet of cargo space. This new model is a sharply-styled cute-ute that could give fashion lessons to other SUVs.

The snazzy interior is even more up to date than the hip exterior. The comfortable leather seats not only offer plenty of back and thigh support, they score well in the oft-neglected shoulder support category.

The 2.3L DOHC 16-valve i-VTEC is Honda's first turbo motor sold in the U.S. Unlike many turbo engines that play up top-end-bang at the cost of bottom end grunt, this engine has both. It pumps out 240-horsepower at 6,000 rpms, yet it also generates 260 ft-lbs of torque at only 4,500 rpms. In other words you won't get surprised by a big rush of power mid-corner, or be too disappointed if you were towing a trailer with your RDX.

A five-speed automatic transmission with nicely-placed paddle shifters helps to let you forget you're behind the wheel of a 65-inch tall, 3,935-lb familymobile. But it is the latest version of Acura's Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system that really makes those four 235/55R18 all-season tires put the power to the pavement. It not only apportions power front to rear, but also from side-to-side in the back, resulting in handling that is amazingly crisp for an SUV. The ride isn't too bad either.

The RDX includes such upmarket items as a 360-watt AM/FM stereo with six-disc in-dash CD changer and MP3 player, and XM satellite radio. Safety is covered by front air bags, front side air bags, side curtain air bags with rollover sensor, and four-wheel ABS-equipped disc brakes. Luxury items include dual-zone automatic climate control system and a power moonroof

A Technology Package is available for a $3,500 premium, and includes a 410-watt Acura/ELS Surround Premium 10-speaker Sound System with six-disc CD changer, DVD-audio, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic II. An easy-to-use GPS with voice recognition and a highly useful rearview camera is also part of the package, as is the AcuraLink satellite communication system with real-time traffic, and Bluetooth capability.


Pros

Well-mannered handling; Honda's first turbo engine; lots of luxury.


Model News

The five-seat Acura RDX SUV is a brand-new model for 2007, lining up next to the seven-seat MDX. It packs Honda's first turbo motor sold in the U.S, giving it plenty of punch. Its fresh styling and Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) aim to round out Acura's SUV model lineup.


Value Writeup

Unlike some SUVs that wouldn't know sport if they drove right through it, the 2007 Acura RDX's mission is to emphasize driving pleasure over outright utility. The 101.4 cubic feet of EPA passenger volume and 28.8 cubic feet of cargo space are adequate for a light-packing family of four (five in a pinch), but one trip down your favorite back road and you'll know why most buyers wind up choosing this Acura.

Summary
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain model year 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, 2011-2015 CR-Z, 2010-2014 FCX, and Insight, 2009-2013 Fit, 2013-2014 Fit EV, 2007-2014 Ridgeline, 2013-2016 Acura ILX, 2013-2014 Acura ILX Hybrid, 2007-2016 RDX, 2005-2012 Acura RL, 2009-2014 Acura TL, and 2010-2013 Acura ZDX vehicles. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the inflator, free of charge. Remedy parts are expected to be available in Summer 2016. Interim notices will be mailed to owners during March 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are JY0, JY1, and JY2.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
