Value Writeup

In a crowded luxury crossover segment, the Acura RDX has proven itself to be a competent and worthy performer. With its standard amenities and impressive Tech Package, plus its sporty turbocharged engine, the RDX is a people-mover at the head of the class.


Model Highlights

Acura has developed a loyal following with its RDX crossover, and for 2011, the model should give the loyalists more of what they crave.

The RDX is available as either a front-wheel- or all-wheel-drive model. Both come powered by a 2.3L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, which produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, thanks to Acura's famed i-VTEC variable valve timing. Power is put to the wheels through a 5-speed automatic with Sequential SportShift steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Acura's optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system controls the distribution of power to all four wheels individually, which allows for precise handling even at high speeds, thanks to yaw control and electronic stability control.

The RDX is a versatile people mover, with room for five adults, and when necessary, the 60/40-spit rear seat can fold flat to create nearly 61 cubic feet of cargo space. Standard leather seating surfaces give a premium look and feel.

An ample standard features list is notable on all RDX models, which includes Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, dual-zone climate control, a 7-speaker, 360-watt stereo with 6-disc CD changer, MP3 compatibility, XM satellite radio, an auxiliary input, automatic headlights and a rearview camera.

The RDX can be had with an array of available safety features, including ABS, traction control and an antiskid system.

Acura's Tech Package can be added to the RDX. It includes navigation with voice recognition, as well as a 10-speaker premium stereo system. Additionally, the AcuraLink Satellite Communication System with Real-Time Traffic now features Traffic Rerouting and AcuraLink Real-Time Weather.

The RDX comes standard with side air bags for front occupants and full-length side-curtain bags for all outboard occupants and it has achieved both a 5-star rating in federal front- and side-impact crash tests and an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick.


Model News

Following a redesign in 2010, the Acura RDX is nearly identical to 2011's model. The small SUV again features bold, angular exterior looks in keeping with the rest of the Acura lineup.

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.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
